How to verify domain ownership for Google Play Market & deep links

Hello!
We created an android application that is using deep links that might be handled by our app.
For the new Android versions, deep links require domain ownership to be verified.
We need to put a JSON file with information about our application in the .well-known folder but we can't find a way how is it possible to. (Site is hosted with Shopify).

Link to the documentation:
https://developers.google.com/digital-asset-links/v1/getting-started

Could someone please shed some light how to do it?

Same issue. Tried to upload the JSON file through "content" -> upload files -> get LINK and then create a URL link through Online Store -> navigation -> Create external url link and link the /.well-known/assetlink.json to the URL link given by shopify for the JSON file. When browsing to the URL link directly as given by shopify, it opens in the browser and you see the JSON code, but when you use the redirect URL (the one Google would access /.well-known/assetlink.json, then the file is downloaded by the browser instead of "streamed", so Google doesn't recognize it properly.
Ugh!
