This is Max from the Shopify Guru Team.
Our billing system requires that fully-fledged credit card, in good standing, is used to pay for the subscription to Shopify.
Sometimes, other versions like Visa Debit cards, or Visa gift cards can be entered, but they are not a reliable option for this recurring payment system.
It doesn't seem like this is an ideal solution for you at the moment, but those are our current restrictions. We are always looking for ways to improve our services and this is one pain point that has been brought up before, so, I know alternatives have are being discussed (it's a tricky thing to change based on the info we need)! If there's anything else you wanted to share, please feel free to email us directly.
We were talking about how to pay for your Shopify subscription. This requires a credit card.
Are you wondering about using this kind of card within Shopify (Settings > Billing > Credit card)? If so, some debit cards have a credit option, like the ones with a Visa logo, but they are not reliable ways to pay for your Shopify invoice.
If you're wondering about using this type of card at checkout, for a purchase, then this depends on the payment gateways offered and what they accept!
If you want any more details, please feel free to let us know.
Max, again, from the Shopify Team.
You'd need to have a credit card in good standing that will allow you to process charges on a recurring basis in USD! This is the currency that we currently charge in no matter where our merchants are located.
Let us know if you have any more questions!
At this time we do not have an option to pay for monthly invoices using a debit card. A credit card, in good standing, is the only way to consistently charge for this.
Credit cards also serve as a way for us to authenticate users, if necessary. We do know that diversifying payment options is something that merchants are looking for moving forward, so, keep an eye on our changelog and announcements page for updates!
