In this guide you will learn how to integrate Katpault with Shopify to provide a no credit, lease-to-own payment option for your customers.

Before Getting Started

Before beginning your integration, please review the following:

  • Online Checkout Flow
  • Your current checkout process to understand how Katapult will impact operations and customers.
  • Leasable Items
  • Tax Exemption Management: Katapult is a wholesale merchant and your team should review internally on how to update orders accordingly.
  • Deployment Checklist
  • Confirm all your products have SKUs & item descriptions. Katapult needs these details for an order to be successful. Products without a SKU may result in a failed checkout, typically resulting in the customer being unable to move past the customer validation screen.

Once your merchant agreement has been completed, you will receive an email with your sandbox login credentials and tokens. If you have not received your tokens, please reach out to [email protected].
