To configure Amazon Pay Gateway into your Lime Light CRM, you will go to Payments > Gateways > Actions > Add a New Provider Profile and select Amazon Pay (Alternative Payment) from the Provider drop down menu  and fill out the gateway parameters.

These parameters are briefly described here for your reference:
