Shopify Pay

Shopify Pay is an accelerated checkout that lets customers save their credit card and their shipping and billing information so they can complete their transaction faster the next time they are directed to the Shopify checkout. This can save your customers time when they check out, especially if they've already opted in to Shopify Pay on any Shopify store. Learn more about accelerated checkouts.

The customer’s shipping and billing information is securely stored on Shopify’s PCI compliant servers and is only shared with your store once an order is placed. If your customers have questions about how Shopify Pay works, or how their data is stored, then you can send them to the Shopify Pay FAQ.

Customer experience

When a customer is checking out, and they've entered their shipping, billing, and credit card information, they can save their information by entering their mobile phone number and opting in:

Shopify Pay opt in dialog

The next time the customer goes to check out, they'll be immediately taken to the order review page. When they click Authorize purchase, they'll receive a unique 6-digit code in a text message. Then, they'll be prompted to enter the code on the checkout page. After they enter the code, the order will be processed.

If a customer returns to your store using the same device, they can check out without using an SMS confirmation. During checkout, the customer is redirected to Shopify Pay to verify their information before returning to checkout to complete the purchase.

After customers opt in to Shopify Pay and complete the SMS verification, they can use their saved information on any Shopify checkout that has the feature enabled. The don't need to verify themselves again.
