How To Become A Third-Party Payment Provider?

My associate has his own payment system and we would like to implement it in my Shopify store. What would be the best way to do this? It appears that the most direct way is to become a third-party payment provider with Shopify. @Helen responded to a similar question here about 2 years ago, however, the method of requesting access to the Shopify Hosted Payment SDK appears to have become unavailable, so looks like the solution is outdated and requires an update.

Hi @EasyTron,


Thank you for getting in touch. If you're wanting to install a payment gateway into your store for your use only, then this can be done through using custom apps. It's best to use custom apps when you want to add an integration exclusively for your store.


If your associate wanted to make their payment gateway available for other merchants to use, then they would need to build a public app from the Partner dashboard and meet a variety of requirements. I would recommend going down the custom app route if your associate is just wanting to make the gateway available for you and your store.
