Decoupling button render and checkout or sign-in initiation

If you need control of the Amazon Pay button click event, you can decouple the button render action and checkout or sign-in initiation. Use amazon.Pay.renderButton() to render the button and amazonPayButton.initCheckout() to initiate Amazon Pay checkout.

Code sample for Amazon Pay Checkout

Code sample for Amazon Sign-in


Render button using a Checkout Session object

Note: new integrations should follow render the Amazon Pay button instructions above. Amazon Pay will continue to support rendering the button using a Checkout Session object you generated on your back end, but new features such as rendering additional payment button will not be available.

Instead of generating a payload that Amazon Pay will use to create a Checkout Session object, you can also set up an endpoint on your server that calls Create Checkout Session. Set that endpoint in the button render code and the Amazon Pay script will POST a request to that URL each time the button is clicked.

The response of your endpoint should be in JSON format. You can either return the entire Create Checkout Session response or return a response that includes a checkoutSessionId key. Example: {"checkoutSessionId": "116e5701-a0bf-49f2-a63d-000000000000"}.

Code sample

<body>
    <div id="AmazonPayButton"></div>
    <script src="https://static-na.payments-amazon.com/checkout.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
        amazon.Pay.renderButton('#AmazonPayButton', {
            merchantId: 'merchant_id',
            createCheckoutSession: {
                url: 'https://mystore/amazonpay/createcheckoutsession'
            },
            sandbox: true, // dev environment
            ledgerCurrency: 'USD', // Amazon Pay account ledger currency
            checkoutLanguage: 'en_US', // render language
            productType: 'PayAndShip', // checkout type
            placement: 'Cart', // button placement
            buttonColor: 'Gold'
        });
    </script>
</body>

Responsive button logic

The Amazon Pay button is responsive and inherits the size of the container element according to the following logic:

  • If no height or width is specified, the button container defaults to 200px by 45px.
  • If only width is specified, the button container height will be set to 45px. The provided width must be between 150px and 500px or container width will be resized to the closest supported value.
  • If only height is specified, the button container width will be set to 500px. The provided height must be between 45px and 192px or container height will be resized to the closest supported value.
  • If both height and width are specified, the button container will be resized to meet these conditions:
    • The container width must be between 150px and 500px. If the provided width is outside those limits, the container width will be resized to the closest supported value.
    • The container height must be between 45px and 192px. If the provided height is outside those limits, the container height will be resized to the closest supported value.
    • The container height:width ratio must be between 1:10 and 1:2.6. If the ratio is outside those limits, the container width will be set to the provided value and the container height will be adjusted to a supported ratio value.

Provide a specific size for the container element or the Amazon Pay button may stretch or shrink if the buyer adjusts the zoom level on their browser.


Enable checkout info updates

Use amazon.Pay.bindChangeAction() to enable updates in case the buyer wants to select a different shipping address or payment method.

Code sample

<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
    amazon.Pay.bindChangeAction('#changeButton1', {
      amazonCheckoutSessionId: 'xxxx',
      changeAction: 'changeAddress'
    });
</script>

Parameters

Parameter
Description
amazonCheckoutSessionId
(required)

Type: string
Amazon Pay Checkout Session identifier
changeAction
(required)

Type: string
Update requested by the buyer

Supported values: 'changeAddress', 'changePayment'

Sign out from Amazon

Use amazon.Pay.signout() to give buyers the option of signing out from their Amazon account.

Best practice: Give buyers the option of signing out after they complete checkout. Bind the function to a “Sign out from Amazon” link on your order confirmation page.

Code sample

<script type="text/javascript">
  document.getElementById('Signout').onclick = function() {
    amazon.Pay.signout();
  };
</script>
