Amazon Payments to stop allowing person to person payments

We knew it had to end sometime.  Amazon has announced via their Annual Notice email that person to person payments will no longer be accepted as of October 13th 2014.  This has been one of the few free and easy options for increasing credit card spend, so its very sad to see it go!  Make sure to get your September payments in this month and your October payments in by October 12th.

Who’s planning the wake?

Is there a problem with it this morning because the “confirm” button as the last step of the payment doesn’t seem to be working.

Yes, the confirm button seems to be broken in Chrome and Safari. Try Firefox or IE instead
