    I do not have a bricks and mortar store. I have an online Shopify store only. Can I install and accept Android pay over the internet? Thank you –

      Hello Mi,

      The only option is to integrate Android Pay into a mobile app. Unfortunately, it might not work with Shopify, but you can use Shopify Payments which is powered by Stripe. I hope this helps and if you have further questions please let me know.

        Great article.
        One question: If I already have an NFC enabled POS, can people automatically pay with Android or Apple Pay or do I first need to enable this feature/sign a contract with Apple or Google? If so, is there a possibility to disable it?

        Thanks,
        Mark

          Mark,

          Any NFC enabled terminal can accept both Apple Pay and Android Pay. No need for you to do anything on your end. 🙂
