We prove the existence of positive ground state solutions to the pseudo-relativistic Schrödinger equation

where N ≥ 3, m > 0, V is a bounded external scalar potential and W is a radially symmetric convolution potential satisfying suitable assumptions. We also provide some asymptotic decay estimates of the found solutions.
