Amazon, Stripe, Core Payments Platform, Amazon Web Services, Prime Day, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, compute infrastructure, Graviton, Nitro, USAAmazon and Stripe have signed an expanded global agreement under which Amazon will significantly expand its use of Stripe’s core payments platform. Amazon Web Services (AWS) will provide crucial compute infrastructure to help Stripe serve millions of businesses around the world. Though both companies have worked closely together for over a decade, this partnership announcement marks a new chapter in the two companies’ enduring relationship.

“Stripe has entrusted AWS with their core operations for over a decade—and we take that responsibility seriously,” said Adam Selipsky, CEO of Amazon Web Services. “In expanding our partnership, we’re honored to do our part supporting Stripe’s continued global growth for years to come.”

Amazon started using Stripe in 2017 to accelerate market expansion in Asia and Europe and support millions of Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday purchases worldwide. Under the new agreement, Stripe will become a strategic payments partner for Amazon in the US, Europe, and Canada, processing a significant portion of Amazon’s total payments volume. It will be used across Amazon’s business units, including Prime, Audible, Kindle, Amazon Pay, Buy With Prime, and more.

“Stripe has been a trusted partner, helping accelerate our business at every turn,” said Max Bardon, Vice President of Payments at Amazon. “In particular, we value Stripe’s reliability. Even during peak days like Prime Day, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday, Stripe delivers industry-leading uptime. We appreciate Stripe’s relentless commitment to putting users first.”

Stripe has long relied on AWS to provide the core compute infrastructure on which it is built. The partnership has allowed the payments company to increase developer productivity and accelerate product development even as it has scaled to support millions of internet businesses around the world. Under the agreement, Stripe will continue to expand its AWS footprint and transform global commerce by taking advantage of AWS’s rapidly-expanding suite of services, including Graviton for efficiency and performance in data processing and Nitro enclaves to enhance data security.

“We couldn’t run without AWS—and we wouldn’t want to,” said David Singleton, Stripe’s Chief Technology Officer. “AWS is our customers’ first choice. The platform gives Stripe enormous developer leverage, which we then deploy in service of our users. As we look at the decade ahead, it’s clear the best path forward for Stripe and for our users is to partner more closely with Amazon.”
