亚马逊推出移动支付平台Amazon Pay,PayPal股价应声下跌

据彭博社报道,亚马逊已经开始向采用其移动支付服务Amazon Pay的零售商提供折扣信用卡费用。

报告援引知情人士的话说,亚马逊这项优惠服务从本周三开始,而亚马逊庞大的用户基础和销售量正是其能够获得较低服务成本的主要原因。

据了解,Amazon Pay目前共拥有约3000万用户,允许用户通过他们的亚马逊账户进行在线购物,与PayPal的服务原理类似。而彭博社上述报道发布后,PayPal股价应声下跌4%。

为了进军新的服务市场,亚马逊甚至不惜放弃部分企业利润。据报道,该公司一直专注于增加金融产品,并计划在未来推出信用账户服务。

Amazon is offering its discounted credit card fees to retailers that adopt Amazon Pay, the company's online payments service, according to Bloomberg.

The report on Wednesday, citing people with knowledge of the matter, said Amazon has offered the discounts to a number of smaller sellers with higher credit card fees than Amazon, which is able to negotiate a lower fee because of its massive user base and sales volume.

Amazon Pay, which has about 30 million users, lets people buy online through their Amazon accounts as an alternative to services like PayPal. It can be offered as an option by sellers. Shares of PayPal dropped 4 percent after the Bloomberg story was published.

Amazon is again showing its willingness to forgo profits in exchange for expanding a new service. The company has been focusing on adding financial products and is reportedly working on launching a credit account service as well.
