However, there are some regional restrictions when it comes to being eligible to use Shopify payments, alternative payments, and the third-party gateways. To find out which gateways are available to use on your store please see this list of gateways per region. Where is your store based?
Let me know if you have any further questions!
Hi, @bbr2020. Great question!
When you set up your Shopify store, Shopify automatically creates a PayPal Express Checkout account for the email address you used to set up your store. Therefore, the payments made through Paypal prior to connecting your new Paypal account, will be pending in the account using that email address.
You can add this email address to your existing Paypal account, or finish setting it up as a Paypal Business account in order for the funds to be deposited. More information can be found in the Help Doc for Setting up Paypal on your store.
If you need assistance with combining or creating these accounts, or you have any trouble with getting the funds to transfer over, please contact Paypal directly.
