How do I accept purchases via Checkout by Amazon on Bonanza?
Checkout by Amazon allows buyers to purchase your items using their Amazon accounts. Buyers can use the shipping addresses and payment methods they have stored with Amazon.
Here's how to setup Checkout by Amazon to work with Bonanza:
Sign up for a Checkout by Amazon account. Checkout by Amazon accounts are different than normal Amazon accounts - you can use an existing Amazon account to sign up for Checkout by Amazon, or you may create a new Amazon account to use with Bonanza. You can sign up through this button:
Complete Amazon's signup forms to register your Checkout by Amazon account.
After you complete Amazon's registration process, log in to Amazon Seller Central and click on the Checkout Pipeline Settings link on the SETTINGS tab of Amazon Seller Central.
You'll need your Merchant ID from this page of Amazon Seller Central a couple steps from now, so keep this browser window open.
- Open Bonanza in a new browser window, hover over the Sell on Bonanza link in the upper left, then click Edit booth options. payment types.
Go to the Payments & purchases section, and make sure that Checkout by Amazon is checked, along with any other payment methods you want to accept.

Click the Add or edit items link, then click Update Booth (or Activate Booth button, if you haven't yet activated your booth) near the upper right hand area of your screen.
You will now be prompted for your Checkout by Amazon Merchant ID, Access Key ID, and Secret Access Key.
Your Merchant ID can be found in the Amazon Seller Central browser window you opened in step 2, as shown below.

link on the INTEGRATION tab of Amazon Seller Central, as shown below:
If you have just created your Amazon seller account and you do not see your access keys on this page, you may need to wait for up to 24 hours before your keys to show up.
