How To Use PayPal On Amazon To Pay For Your Purchase - The Future Is Your Creation

Like most dropshippers know, Amazon’s checkout system has a big minus – it does not allow for PayPal payments.


Because Amazon and PayPal are competitors and this causes great inconvenience for consumers and for eCommerce entrepreneurs that are using the dropshipping model.


While doing some research about why Amazon does not cooperate with PayPal, I stumbled upon a solution that allows you to use PayPal funds to pay on

First, let me brief you on why it is such an inconvenience to do business on amazon without the option to pay for your transactions using PayPal. Especially, if you are using the dropshipping business model.


Why You Want To Use PayPal For All Transactions

It is frustrating for dropshippers to not be able to use PayPal for their transactions, and I am going to explain why.

When customers are purchasing items from your eBay listing or eCommerce store, they are using PayPal to process their payment.

When dropshipping, you can then use your PayPal balance to order the product from the supplier/wholesaler and ship it straight to the customer. You do not need to use your private funds.
His Secret Obsession
This is almost true…

At the beginning of your dropshipping and PayPal journey, you have to use your private funds because PayPal is withholding the money until you can provide a tracking number.

When dropshipping from Amazon, you have to use your private or business credit card and, therefore, have to spend money from your own pocket until you make enough sales and are caught up.

Also, Amazon only pays out sales profits every 14 days, which makes it even more difficult to use the funds from the customer’s actual purchase.

How To Use PayPal On Amazon

An easy trick really. You go to, and then you purchase an Amazon Gift Card using your PayPal account. You can purchase a gift card anywhere from $5 and up.

After purchasing the Amazon Gift Card, you will find the code to redeem the gift card in the email you receive from Dundle.

You then copy the code, head over to to purchase your item, and while in Checkout, you paste in the Amazon Gift Card code and complete the purchase.

As simple as that!

Like this, you can use your PayPal balance to make a purchase on Amazon.


I hope this blog post was helpful and, especially for fellow dropshippers in the same frustrating position I was in, having to use my private credit card to make dropshipping purchases on Amazon.

I would guess there are more options for using PayPal. If you know any other way of using PayPal on Amazon, please share it in the comment section below. I would love to know, and you will also help other dropshippers in the same situation.

    You can also buy on Amazon with Paypal with the website with the same guarantees as if you bought directly from Amazon. Enter the ASIN Number of the product and click on “Buy with Paypal” to be redirected to Paypal. The product will be shipped directly from Amazon to your shipping address.

      Hi Pauline,
      thank you for your comment and advice on the payzon option. I tried searching on a product ASIN to check it out, but the site didn’t find it. I’ll be careful to recommend this option to my readers because I didn’t find any reviews of the service. Maybe it will show up later. I’ll keep my eyes open for it.
