Before you can use the Android Buy SDK, you'll need:

  • Android SDK Level 14 (Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0) or higher
  • JDK 1.7
  • Android Studio 2.1.x recommended
  • Private app access token. When creating your private app, make sure to also get a storefront access token by enabling Allow this app to access your storefront data using the Storefront API.

If you want to offer Android Pay, then you'll also need to visit Android Pay.
