We don't even know if people will use that option in the first place. I'm sure most compulsive HODLers would much rather use their credit card or something. One of the reasons Amazon might not be accepting bitcoin is because it would not see much use, and there's very little pressure for them to pull the trigger.
Yeaaa that's why they have a plan to have a different place for crypto user by bought three different domain names relating to digital currencies.
Pretty reasonable move for them to not accept crypto directly and have such a smart plan.
Actually don't know what will happened then , that's just my point of view.

We don't know if people will use that option in first place, but to offer it doesn't require that people must use it in the first place. You sound like it would be a huge operation to install this payment option while it isn't!

@RealPhotoshoper

That Amazon doesn't want accept bitcoin directly is very interesting info because I already assume that they have deep ties to banks and governments and that would explain why they didn't offer it yet.

I'm not exactly sure what you mean when you say "Stores don't have to deal with the volatility since it's the 'problem' of the payment processor."

That doesn't really make sense to me. Are you saying that if Amazon is selling some 100$ item and decide to take bitcoin for it, and the next day that dollar amount is worth 20$, that it's the payment processor's issue? I don't see how that really relates. It would seem like Amazon is the one taking the 80$ hit in that situation because they used fiat to purchase/obtain the item, and then are selling it to someone for bitcoin.

You don't get it. If amazon sells something worth $100 in Bitcoin through a payment processor, Amazon receives the $100 in fiat (minus the fee which is 1%). In easy terms, Amazon gets paid out $99. The payment processor takes responsibility for the conversion of Bitcoin to fiat, which means that the volatility is only the concern of the payment processor. That goes up for every store accepting Bitcoin through these payment processors. They optionally can choose to go for a certain percentage that they receive in Bitcoin, and the rest in fiat, but that optional feature doesn't see much actual usage due to stores not being interested in holding something that's so volatile.

If i am not wrong there is a lot of discussion about the pros and cons how if amazon adopt bitcoin as a payment gateaway.
Mostly says it is scared , bitcoin is a dangerous thing , a non sense thing created on the internet etc.
The point is there a lot of feedback on how they don't want to support the project , but it was long time ago. Today might they have different plan to deal with bitcoin , i hope so.

What my concern is rate of bitcoin increasing and how online shopping billing will be created and the transaction charges also confuse the payment method for amazon this things has to be rectified. I believe all the discrepancies will be sorted out as soon as possible for the sake of Bitcoin.

The latest news we got is that they are still not getting to accept bitcoin as a payment method. And I'm sure that they have look at every angle of the pros and cons of accepting it, however, from their business perspective, its unlikely that they will give in to the petition. However, I'm still positive that maybe in the future, then can sorted things out and one day accept bitcoin as payment. Because it will be another boom in their business as bitcoin is slowly gaining a wider acceptance now. It will just be a matter of time.

I don't see any incentive to take the risk of accepting bitcoin as a way of payment by any of the established big players. Innovation pioneers are generally small entrepreneurs cause it is their only choice to innovate. However big players can just adopt the method after they see it is working already. Hereby they have chance to test the market by basically doing anything.

There's an incentive for them if they just understand by getting into the market of bitcoin chances of pushing other skeptic investors will be encouraged to get into bitcoin. Amazon is one of the most popular ecommerce / online shop that has millions of customers. The incentive isn't just for them but for all of us but they have to understand first what bitcoin really is and what it can give to their business.

If amazon accepts bitcoin,then it would make bitcoin more popular and familiar among new people.By this way,amazon too could get new customers who opt to pay only in bitcoins.It would be a hassle free payment system and could be done from anywhere.If amazon accepts bitcoin payments,then more companies would keep trust over bitcoins and would start accepting bitcoins which would bring bitcoin in to the mainstream.

Amazon AWS has a large computing power. Is it possible for Amazon planning to use idle computing power to confirm BTC transactions selectively of Amazon shoppers? Can amazon confirm "some" BTC transactions instantly with zero fee?

Probably the time it will take to complete any transaction. Bitcoin takes time to confirm and in situations where there is flash sales, it could cause one to loose deals easily.

no one can negate advantages of BTC in payment. I think big companies will slowly accept it to follow the trend but in their way for more convenient.

I will not deny not to say otherwise. But I would like to know what advantages a user can have thanks to Bitcoin for today, namely when buying a product in real life. Of course with the help of the Internet, such as the Amazon platform or others, That is, some nuances that allow the buyer to realize their plans well thanks to Bitcoin, but How do we put Bitcoin to live?

There is no question that bitcoin has a lot of advantages as well as disadvantages. But we have yet to really see how big companies will accept it. For one, volatility is the one reason why amazon is not yet accepting bitcoins. Maybe they will get like a third party to handle bitcoins payments. We can only hope that they will make the right decision to accept bitcoins or even just like to experiment accepting it to see if it is profitable on their end.

As far as I know, amazon is already accepting bitcoin as mode of payment. In fact there are some other online shopping stores as well who are providing this facility to the owners of bitcoin. I don稚 think so there can be anything which can go wrong by doing this. This is the best thing which they have done. It is because of the reason that it will help bitcoin in making better name.

If we wait for the perfect solution it will take too much time. For now the solutions are palliative, but work for sometime anyway. People who deal with Bitcoins know its currently limitations, people are aware about it and if they still want to use the digital currency, go on...
It really would take a whole lot of time if the devs are not gingered enough to find a solution quickly. We really need a huge push sometimes as humans.

However, bitcoin would not be the only means of payment if this happens as amazon is looking into some of the top cryptocurrencies (so I heard) and if that happens, we might start seeing some real life application of some of these other ones.

Apparently, Charlie Lee may end up being right when he said, bitcoin may just end up being a digital asset and people will have to convert to some altcoins to make faster transactions or pay for products.

Nope. Amazon itself doesn't accept Bitcoin as payment form, that should be perfectly clear to anyone. It's just that certain third party services allow you to purchase stuff from Amazon with Bitcoin, and that's really it.

Amazon will likely only come to a point to accept Bitcoin, when lightning network is up and running. Bitcoin in its current form and the sheer number of spam attacks isn't function well enough as currency tool.

Without second layer applications, nothing will change, and that's a fact. That's why people are eagerly waiting for lightning network, and that for a good reason. It will bring some much needed functionalities.

I see a lot of people pushing for companies like Amazon to accept Bitcoin as a payment option. Have we considered the implications of these decisions? Let's say we cannot scale to "service" the need for millions of new people who would use this technology for the first time. What a big embarrassment would it be, if people waited 13 hours for their transactions to be confirmed. Doing this now will hurt Bitcoin more than any other "bad" thing that has happened to it before.

We need to wait for the perfect scaling solution to address this problem, before Amazon or any other big retailer starts to accept Bitcoin as a payment option. The Lightning Network might get us close, but it is not a proven technology yet.

Let's hear your thoughts on this?  Huh Huh
You really do have a point mate! Doing this now would probably make matters worse but we really would not know until we try or the devs might be too relaxed to look for a solution until we start seeing some little bit of these issues here and there.

The proposal of BCH and B2X is all as a result of this which does not really sound like a good solution for now, but it is getting pretty close and we cannot just avoid that. Something should be done fast, cause with or without amazon; we really need a scaling solution right now.
