Shopify Merchants Can Now Integrate Paytm Payment Gateway to Simplify Consumer Checkout Experience

Trusted by millions of businesses worldwide, Shopify provides e-commerce platforms with various features to meet ever-changing consumer needs. One of the features that Shopify merchants can benefit from is payment apps. These are public applications distributed to merchants for integration with Shopify websites. Payment apps are integrated by merchants to accept payments through wallets, cryptocurrencies, bank transfers, debit cards, credit cards, etc.

In a recent development, Shopify announced that it allows third-party partners to build their gateways as payment apps for Shopify merchants; and Paytm payment gateway is also part of this integration. This new update was announced at Shopify Unite 2021 and will allow merchants to have access to a wider range of payment methods. The idea is to keep up with the changing times and help merchants provide a seamless customer experience by allowing them to pay using their preferred payment method.

Migrate to a new payment platform

Currently, Shopify supports the Hosted Payment SDK (HPSDK) Integration as a link between a merchant’s checkout page and Shopify’s checkout. All HPSDK integrations involve a full page redirect during the checkout stage of Shopify to provide a standardized interface for all third-party/external payment gateways.

As per Shopify Payments Platform announcement, existing HPSDK integrations have been deprecated. Therefore, Shopify merchants had to migrate their websites to the new platform. Affected merchants had to install the new payment apps.

Launched in June 2021, the new Shopify Payments Platform offers a new way to integrate third-party payment gateways into Shopify Checkout, unlocking new sales growth opportunities for merchants. Powered by Shopify’s latest payment technology, the new payment platform will help Shopify merchants in India sell more and reach more people across the country.

What’s in store for Shopify merchants?

The new Shopify Payments Platform aims to deliver an enhanced merchant experience through app extensions and a custom onboarding flow. With the arrival of new payment methods such as digital currencies, the platform wants to help merchants respond to changing dynamics.
