Hey there,

 

I'd like to build an e-commerce website, in country Georgia and want to accept national currency GEORGIA LARI.

Shopify suggested 2checkout.com as it's available in Georgia, but I could't find Georgia Lari currency there.

Can you suggest me any alternatives?

Thanks!

Hi Avto!

You are indeed correct that while 2Checkout is a supported gateway in Georgia, the gateway themselves don't support GEL as a currency, which is a shame! https://www.2checkout.com/faq#what-currencies-does-2checkout-support

As a workaround, I would like to suggest that you consider setting up a manual gateway, like a Bank Deposit or a Money Order, and then you have the option to leave instructions for your customer (such as instructions on how to complete a bank deposit by offering your bank details) and they will see these instructions on the order confirmation page. Then you should choose not to fulfil these orders until you have confirmed that you have received the funds from that customer: https://help.shopify.com/manual/payment-settings/manual-payments

Hope this helps!

Congratulations  :))  Now everyone form Georgia can accept Payments on shopify as UniPAY Chekout solution is officially Shopify Partner and any Georgian Busness entity or startup company can accept payments from Visa, MasterCard or AMEX cards.

So instead of "accept credit cards" we need to select Alternative Payments and our customers will be able to pay with credit cards in our shop?
