Currently G Pay appears as default and I would like to change it to Paypal (see pic).


How can I do it?


Thank you

Hi @HiddenGems 


The button you see on your product page is called a Dynamic Checkout button. Or sometimes referred to as a "Buy Now" button. The dynamic checkout will showcase a range of payment options depending on what you have available in your store admin. 


It will either show your customers their preferred checkout method (based on their cookies or previous purchase history on your store) or will show a static Buy Now message. The rapid checkout that is shown on the button cannot be directly controlled by you the merchant. If there is a payment option you don't want customers to pay with then you can remove that from within your payment settings. 


You can learn more about the dynamic checkout button in our Help Center here: Dynamic checkout buttons · Shopify Help Center

Thanks for your response!


So I understand that I cannot configure this and that the G pay button may appear instead of paypal express.


What I don't like is that a payment method like G Pay appears for some people not as well known as Paypal that gives more confidence.

In the payments section click mange, then unclick the g pay and shop pay. This will make PayPal appear to your buyer's as the default payment method on your stores pages. Worked for me. Good luck to you
