How to Pay with Bitcoin at Amazon

Amazon is one of the best places to shop online, and in this article we will outline a few ways to pay with bitcoin on amazon.

Bitcoin has been around for a decade but continues to struggle with adoption. More companies and organizations are adopting Bitcoin as a form of payment to help boost their customer base. However, some companies are yet to take a stance on Bitcoin, and Amazon is one of them. Despite that, crypto enthusiasts can pay for products on Amazon using Bitcoin. Let us see how you can do that.

Moon extension for amazon payments using BTC

Moon, a cryptocurrency payment processing company, recently launched its browser extension which allows people to pay for goods on Amazon using Bitcoin. According to the CEO of Moon, Ken Kruger, the extension will have a QR code which you can scan to make payments. It will also have the lightning invoice for those that can’t use the QR code for some reason.

  • To make use of the service, first, log in to your Amazon account

  • Search for the product you wish to buy and fill all the necessary information

  • Proceed to check out and click on the Moon extension on your Chrome browser
