Getting paid for Buy with Prime orders

  • Amazon Pay requires a reserve to manage financial liability created from transaction disputes from your customers, including chargebacks and Amazon Pay A-to-z Guarantee claims. Amazon Pay uses a tiered model to determine the reserve rate that applies to you and calculates your reserve amount based on the Reserve Tier you qualify for.
