Amazon and Stripe have signed an expanded global agreement that will significantly increase Amazon’s use of Stripe’s core payments platform. Stripe will become a strategic payments partner for Amazon in the US, Europe, and Canada, processing a significant portion of Amazon’s total payments volume across its businesses, including Prime, Audible, Kindle, Amazon Pay, Buy With Prime, and more. Additionally, Stripe will expand its use of Amazon Web Services, Stripe’s long-standing cloud infrastructure provider, to run and grow its business while reliably serving millions of internet companies.
The agreement will help Amazon accelerate its market expansion in Asia and Europe, and support millions of Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday purchases around the world. Stripe’s use of AWS will provide the core compute infrastructure on which Stripe is built, allowing Stripe to increase developer productivity and accelerate product development even as it scales to support millions of internet businesses around the world.
