Shopify Inc. launched an integration with Google Pay on Shopify stores allowing hundreds of millions of shoppers to experience accelerated checkout. With Google Pay, shoppers will experience a fast checkout involving fewer steps and a mobile-first design. Shopify is the first commerce platform enabling Google Pay for its users.

To improve checkout conversion rates, Shopify merchants can now enable Google Pay with a single click in their store settings. With fewer clicks and a mobile-first design, Google Pay enables any Android user who has previously stored their credit or debit card information on Chrome to checkout via a "Google Pay" button.

“The checkout process can often make or break the completion of a purchase,” said Mohammad Hashemi, GM, Shopify, financial services. “When shoppers encounter a lot of friction on a mobile device, they’re more likely to abandon their carts. Shopify is always looking for ways to arm our merchants with tools to provide the best customers experiences, and by enabling Google Pay across our entire platform, we are helping our merchants tackle one of the toughest challenges in the industry - cart abandonment.”

Google Pay is available to all Shopify merchants using Shopify Payments. To learn more please visit:
