Amazon has historically not been flexible when it comes to its payment methods: while it accepts credit and debit cards, the platform has been reluctant to accept alternative payment methods like PayPal. Now, however, you can pay for purchases with your Venmo account.

Amazon now supports PayPal’s proprietary P2P payment platform for purchases. You can use your Venmo balance for purchases, or use a credit/debit card or bank account linked through the platform. If you want, you can also use your Venmo balance as your default balance for future Amazon payments, and the platform’s purchase protections still apply to your Amazon purchases. Amazon’s own protections also apply, of course, so this could be one of the safest ways to shop.

This option is only available to US shoppers, of course, and comes a year after Amazon promised it would soon roll out Venmo support for its shopping experience. Apps like Venmo and Cash App are increasingly being used as alternatives to traditional banking, and Venmo itself has features like the ability to cash checks, receive direct deposit, and even pay for Lyft rides. Now, you can use it for most of your purchases thanks to the support of Amazon.

Amazon is now rolling out Venmo support to some US users, and it should be available to everyone just in time for their Black Friday shopping spree later next month.
