Shopify merchants can now accept cryptocurrency as a payment method through Pay’s integration with Shopify. They now can accept more than 20 tokens, including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Cronos (CRO), Shiba Inu (SHIB), Dogecoin (DOGE), and ApeCoin (APE). This article will guide you on how to integrate Pay with Shopify.

Please follow the 4 simple steps below to know how to integrate cryptocurrency payments directly in Shopify through Pay

Step 1: Register Pay Account

Sign up for a Pay account on the Merchant Dashboard, if you don’t already have one. Follow the instructions to get started.

Step 2: Install Pay and Connect with Shopify Shop

  1. Log into the Merchant Dashboard
  2. Select Developers at the left menu and navigate to the Shopify tab
  3. Enter your Shopify shop name and press the Install & Connect button
  4. Authorize to install Pay in your designated Shopify storefront
  5. Select your Pay’s Merchant Account to authorize the connection with the Shopify storefront
  6. Get redirected back to Shopify Admin upon successful completion.
  7. Click the Activate Pay button.

The connection status of the selected Merchant Account will become Connected once the installation and connection are successful.


  1. Please note that your Shopify shop name is the sub-domain of your shop’s URL and it should not contain characters other than letters (a-z), numbers (0-9), periods, and hyphens. For example, if your shop’s URL is, you should enter “exampleshop” as your shop name.
  2. If your Merchant Account is still pending activation (i.e. KYC is not yet complete), only test mode will be available.
  3. To successfully authorize the connection of a Merchant Account with a Shopify shop, the login user shall be either the Owner, Administrator, or Developer of the Merchant Account.

  5. Get redirected to Pay checkout page.
  6. Refer here for how to complete a test payment.

Step 4: Enable Live Mode

Once the payment flow is thoroughly tested, you could enable LIVE transactions by following the steps below:

  1. Log into the Shopify Admin of your connected Shopify shop.
  2. Select Settings and then Payments.
  3. Navigate to the Pay under the Additional payment methods section, and click Manage.
  4. Disable Test Mode by unchecking the Enable test mode checkbox.
