Today over 70% of the traffic to online stores that use Shopify comes from mobile devices, a number that continues to rise. This is why improving the checkout process on mobile is critical for supporting online retailers in their journey to grow and reach more customers. To improve checkout conversion rates, Shopify merchants can now enable Google Pay with a single click in their store settings and unlock an accelerated checkout experience for their customers. With fewer clicks and a mobile-first design, Google Pay enables any Android user who has previously stored their credit or debit card information on Chrome to checkout via a “Google Pay” button.

So this development for Shopify customers is a bit of a coup for Shopify. Will you be activating the Google Pay on Spotify?
