Hi there

Please bring Shopify Payments to South Africa. All the other payment gateways require a potential customer to be redirected to their platform which has been shown to have a negative impact on conversion rates. I've had a number of incidences myself where a potential customer doesn't trust or know the payment gateway they are being redirected to and as a result I have more abandoned checkouts than I would have had had they been able to purchase directly on my store. 

South Africa has a sophisticated banking sector and many of the business owners in the country cater to international clients who do not know our payment gateways well, and therefore may not necessarily trust being redirected to them. 

Thank you so much for this platform and I trust you consider my concern.

Along side the fact that your are paying 2% for payment via shopify and 3.5% + R1.50 additionally with payfast. This is why I am looking for alternatives.
