A seamless checkout process is essential for higher conversions and a better buying experience. That’s where Shop Pay comes in. Shop Pay, Shopify’s one-tap accelerated checkout, allows shoppers to speed through every purchase with their saved shipping and billing information.
You can get Shop Pay for free by setting up Shopify Payments for your store. Shop Pay boosts conversion across multiple channels including your online store, in the Shop App, Facebook, Instagram and Google.
An external study by a Big Three global management consulting company found that Shop Pay lifts conversions by up to 50% relative to guest checkout, and outpaces other accelerated checkouts by at least 10%. Even when it isn’t used by a buyer, the mere presence of Shop Pay increases lower funnel conversions by 5%. Simply put, Shop Pay is the Internet’s best converting accelerated checkout.*
Given the performance gains merchants get by using Shop Pay, it should come to nobody’s surprise that it's the most used wallet on the Shopify platform in the United States as a share of Shopify’s online GMV, beating the next closest wallet by nearly 5%.
And Shop Pay is built to perform both on desktop and mobile checkouts. For brands like Juiced Bikes, this ensures checkouts are always speedy and delightful, regardless of which device shoppers use.
“Shop Pay is definitely our most popular payment method. It’s a faster user experience and it’s all contained within the checkout flow so customers aren’t being redirected anywhere else,” says Marisa Delatorre, Juiced Bikes’ Director of Ecommerce. “It’s even better if customers have an account already as the two factor authentication gets you checked out in no time.”
The power of Shop Pay goes beyond its one-tap checkout. It unlocks your brand’s potential to acquire, convert, and retain more customers.

With Shop’s sign-in features, your store can quickly identify Shop users and prompt them with a password-less login before they reach checkout. This lowers friction at checkout and lets shoppers complete purchases in one-tap without having to fill in any forms or additional details. In fact, merchants with sign-in with Shop enabled can see as much as 50% more store sign-ins from Shop Pay users.
