Can I use Paypal, Alipay, Wechat Pay in storefront API (or use it in mobile app checkout process)?

I am developing a mobile app and I have studied the storefront API. I am wondering if Shopify support other payment methods on Storefront API (or Mobile App) other than Google Pay, Credit Card and Apple Pay in the payment process. For example, can I use Paypal, Alipay or Wechat Pay to process the checkout in the mobile app?

Payment processing is not available through the storefront API directly, in that you can create a checkout and send users to the webUrl, but you cannot vault and process credit cards locally.

 

For that, you would be using the sales channel SDK. At this time, though, sales channel permissions are reserved for apps that act as a marketplace, and you'd have to apply to convert your app into one via the partner dashboard. To my knowledge, though, typical mobile app builders are not eligible.

 

Knowing that, assuming you are a marketplace, you would be using Stripe to vault credit cards to be processed with Shopify Payments (including Apple/Google Pay), or you would use Spreedly for other gateways. This is documented here: https://help.shopify.com/en/api/guides/sales-channel-sdk/completing-a-payment

 

Cheers.

 

Let me know if I'm misunderstanding your question though.

Hey Alex,

 

Don't worry about the credit card! AliPay and Wechat can generate 2D QR code to let the users pay. I'm interested in the method to customize checkout process and redirect to external 'webUrl', can you talk more details about it?

 

Thanks,

John
