How to solve a problem which causes app to crash when new dependency is added to gradle?

  android

I am trying to integrate paynow api to my application, I have not done much, so far I have just added this dependance to gradle: implementation 'zw.co.paynow:java-sdk:1.1.1'

Supprisingly the app crashes, if I remove it the app does not crash, so adding it is crashing my app. So my question is, what could be missing that causes this crash?
