Understanding the payment process is an important step toward getting paid by your customers. When a customer checks out, they can choose to pay for their order using any of the methods that you've enabled in the Payments area of Shopify. You can enable a variety of payment methods using Shopify.
If you want to let your customers pay using a credit card, then you can use Shopify Payments or a third-party provider. There are also several ways for customers to pay online without using a credit card, like PayPal, Amazon Pay, and Apple Pay. You might also want to accept alternative methods of payment like BitCoin.
From your Payments page, you can:
- Set up Shopify Payments
- Activate a third-party payment provider
- Activate an alternative payment method
- Activate a manual payment method
- Change your payment authorization settings
