Big news hit the manufactured spend circles this week. After more than 3 years of very easy manufactured spend, Amazon Payments will be ending its person to person payment options on October 13, 2014.
You can find the new terms on Amazon’s help page here.
As of October 13, 2014 Amazon WebPay will no longer be available to send, receive, or request money from other Amazon Payments users. Amazon Payments customers will no longer see the option to Send Money once they log into their account.
While it’s sad news, I think this deal lived a long life. Looking back on my sheet that I used to keep track of payments among a circle of 6 friends, we had a great 3 years. Plenty of miles & points were manufactured.
Here’s to Amazon Payments and here’s to hoping for the next manufactured spend opportunity to poke its head out!
