Payment providers

I would like to make sure I understand something. 

I live in Israel and it isn't supported by Shopify payments, so I have to choose a 3rd party payment provider. 

Currently my options are extremely limited and the solutions are quite expensive. So, on top of having to go with a more expensive solution I also have to pay Shopify an additional 2% transaction fee? Is there a way to choose a gateway that isn't listed on the shopify list of available payment providers?

Hi @AB10,


Nick here from Shopify. 


That is correct. Because Shopify Payments is not available in Israel yet, you would need to use a third party payment gateway such as PayPal or one of the following gateways listed below:

You are also correct in regards to the additional transaction fees. 19-11-y7taw-axtwj


Currently, the only way you could use another payment is if you created one which would be very technical and more than likely take a long time. 


Your best bet, in this case, would be to find one of the gateways in the list that you resonate with and use. I wish there was another way or gateway option I could suggest, but the partnered Shopify gateways would be the most straight forward option for you. 


All the best, Nick
