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

You can set up Android App Links to integrate your app with Android web browsers. When an Android user taps a link to your website, they'll be redirected to your app if they have it installed.
From your Shopify admin, go to Apps.
Click Manage private apps.
Click the name of your app.
In the Storefront API section, click Configure Mobile Buy SDK settings (optional).
In the Mobile Buy SDK (Android) section, enter your Application ID and your SHA-256 certificate fingerprints.
