Participants involved in an Amazon FPS transaction perform one or more of the following actions:
The buyer, known as the sender in an Amazon FPS transaction, makes the payment for purchasing goods or services. The sender can send money using an Amazon Payments Personal account, Amazon Payments Business account, or Amazon FPS developer account.
The merchant (or seller), also known as the recipient in an Amazon FPS transaction, receives payment for the goods or services sold to the sender. A recipient can receive money using an Amazon Payments Personal account, Amazon Payments Business account, or Amazon FPS developer account.
Make Amazon web service calls to enable money transfer
The developer, also known as the caller in an Amazon FPS transaction, can transfer money between a sender and a recipient in a transaction. A caller can also perform the role of a sender or a recipient. A caller must have an Amazon FPS developer account to make web service API calls. For more information about registering for an Amazon FPS account, go to the Amazon Flexible Payments Service Getting Started Guide.
Amazon FPS does not allow a participant to play all three roles in a single transaction.
