Checkout experience for customers using Shop Pay

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.

Customer experience

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

If a customer returns to your store using the same device, then they can check out without using an SMS confirmation. During checkout, the customer is redirected to Shop Pay to verify their information before returning to checkout to complete the purchase. If your store offers a local pickup or delivery option, then customers can choose the option during checkout with Shop Pay.

After customers opt in to Shop Pay and complete the SMS verification, they can use their saved information on any Shopify checkout that has the feature enabled. They don't need to verify themselves again. For stores that have access to the feature, some customers can pay in installments. Learn more about Shop Pay Installments.

If a customer wants to change their Shop Pay account information, then they need to sign in to Shop Pay with their current registered email before they can update their information. Customers can opt out of Shop Pay at any time. If your customer has any questions about using Shop Pay, then they can visit Shop Pay Help.
