This section describes where Amazon FPS Marketplace Quick Start fits in to your website's work flow.
You use Amazon FPS Marketplace to handle the following functionality in an order transaction:
The following sequence shows the events a buyer (sender) goes through in a transaction at the fictitious DigitalDownload website.
Buyer's Experience of Marketplace Quick Start
John visits the DigitalDownload website, selects the MP3 audio file, Now and Forever-Richard Marx, selects Amazon Payments as the payment method and clicks Buy Now.
After John clicks Download Now, he is directed to the CBUI. He signs into his Amazon Payments account using his email ID and password.
Once he signs in, John views the Payment authorization page. This page enables him to select a personal payment instrument, such as his credit card, for the transaction.
John selects his Amazon Payments account balance (ABT) as the payment instrument, as shown, and clicks Continue.
After he clicks Continue, John views the Confirm payment authorization page. He reviews the payment details and clicks Confirm.
After John clicks Confirm, the CBUI redirects
him to the DigitalDownload website, where DigitalDownload executes

The payment transaction is not executed on the Amazon FPS website. DigitalDownload makes an operation web service call and executes the payment transaction. For more information, see Pay.

Merchant's Experience of Marketplace Quick Start
The merchant lists items for sale on the developer's web site.
The buyer shops on the developer's website and uses the developer's ordering tools to authorize payment.
Amazon FPS notifies the merchant that a purchase has been authorized, and the merchant fulfills the order.
The merchant notifies Amazon FPS when the order is fulfilled. The payment is split between the merchant, the developer, and Amazon FPS.
