At the moment, for your Algerian Shopify store, you would need to use one of the available gateways for Algeria.
This list currently includes 2Checkout but does not include Skrill, meaning you could use 2Checkout but not Skrill on your store. :)
As these gateways are third-party, independent companies you would need to contact 2Checkout support with your queries, as we don't have access to their policies or rates from here in Shopify.
They would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have on how their service works and what you'd need to do to sign up.
In addition; you can also offer a PayPal solution in addition to your credit card gateway on your store to give your customers more ways to purchase!
If you have any questions on Shopify itself feel free to reach out to us via our support site at any time. :)
Best of luck with everything here!
I'm Algerian too , I want to start drop shipping but stuck with payments and credit cards and stuff like that ,
But I'm still working on it and hopefully I'll be able to start my drop shipping business
Anyway , what I recommend is using paypal and a neteller card or paysera card to activate it and withdrawal your earnings from atms here .
2checkout probably isn't going to approve your request because bank here don't support it whatsoever , even if they do support it , you need to have a legit website ( ecommerce store ) with good traffic and sales , because a lot of dropshippers try to use 2checkout to sell Spamy cheap products , and 2checkout doesn't like that .
I hope that helps and good luck with your business ☺
Hi again there!
John here from Shopify once more.
Thanks for getting back in touch here to let us know about your correspondence from 2Checkout.
I have added this to our internal tracking so we can reach out to the gateway and update our resources as appropriate.
Best of luck with finding a workable gateway for your business needs. :)
