Users of Amazon’s free WebPay peer-to-peer (P2P) payments system got some bad news recently – the service will shut down Oct. 13.

You can still make payments through it until that date, and recipients will have 30 days after that to collect any money sent to them before it will revert to the sender, Amazon said on its site. The Seattle company advised registered payments services users of the change in an annual notice distributed Sept. 10, according to postings on various websites.
