I have been trying to enable USD as a currency in Amazon Pay in my US online store for a few days now. Unfortunately it doesn’t quite work. Can you guys send me some instructions? I have already contacted Amazon Support several times, but they only sent me a link to a website that didn’t explain how to activate foreign currencies in my Shopify store.
To enable USD as a currency in Amazon Pay for your US online store on Shopify, you can follow these steps:
- Install the Amazon Pay plugin: Ensure that you have the Amazon Pay plugin installed on your Shopify store. You can find the plugin in the Shopify App Store. Follow the installation instructions provided by the plugin.
- Set up your Amazon Pay account: If you haven’t already, create an Amazon Pay account for your business. Visit the Amazon Pay website (pay.amazon.com) and sign up as a merchant. Complete the necessary registration and verification steps.
- Configure your Amazon Pay settings: In your Shopify admin dashboard, go to the Amazon Pay settings or configuration section. Enter your Amazon Pay Merchant ID and access keys. These can be obtained from your Amazon Pay account.
- Enable USD as a currency: Within the Amazon Pay settings, look for the currency options. Ensure that USD (United States Dollar) is selected and enabled as one of the supported currencies.
- Test the payment integration: Place a test order on your Shopify store to ensure that the Amazon Pay integration is working correctly. Select USD as the currency during the checkout process and complete the payment.
- Monitor transactions and manage settings: Once the integration is set up and tested, you can monitor transactions and manage various settings through your Amazon Pay account and Shopify admin dashboard. This includes tracking payments, managing refunds, and accessing reports.
If you encounter any difficulties during the process or have specific questions related to your Shopify store, it’s recommended to reach out to Shopify support or consult their documentation. They can provide further assistance tailored to your platform.
Remember to regularly update your Amazon Pay and Shopify plugins to ensure compatibility and access to the latest features.
