Shopify Payments will be made available on Google
In April, Shopify announced a partnership with Google to make it easy for merchants to list their products for free on the Google Shopping tab through Shopify’s Google channel. And now, they’re further extending their Google partnership by announcing that Shopify Payments will be available to U.S. merchants through Buy on Google, the search engine’s native checkout option. It means Shopify merchants participating in Buy on Google will have their buyers’ payment transactions processed through Shopify Payments when they take place on Google properties. Additionally, new merchants without an existing Shopify account will have the option to sign up to Shopify and use Shopify Payments as their payment service provider.
This marks the first time Shopify Payments will be made available outside of Shopify, making it easier for merchants to enable purchases on many different channels, wherever buyers are.
With the integration, all merchants that enable Shopify Payments on Buy on Google will benefit from the speed, transparency, and reliability of Shopify Payments, as well as the ability to view, manage, and track orders and payments all in one place.
The Shopify Payments integration will first be available to U.S merchants later this year with additional markets to follow.
