I have recently opened a Shopify store, though can not see the Shopify payment option apart from the below. I am based out of the UAE, of which I am aware Shopify Payments is not supported here. I do have a Personal UK account I would like to use to start sending and receiving payments, but I can't seem to have an option to do that. I am also in the process of opening up a company in the UK with a business account to be able to sell online. What are my solutions? Please help.

Can I ask if you have the United Kingdom set as the default address in your admin under Settings > General? Or do you have UAE? The payment gateway options you will see under Settings > Payment Providers will be determined by the address you list under your general settings. If you have UAE listed as your location, then you will only see the options available there. Could you take a look and let me know what your settings currently are? I'm sure we can get to the bottom of this for you!
Oh, great! I'm glad it's working for you now!
Just some extra info for setting up Shopify Payments: You will need to ensure you have a valid UK issued passport or driver's license. We would also reserve the right to ask for more business documents if needed (documents registered within the UK/tracking info for shipping) as per the Shopify Payments Terms of Service.
We also have a more general guide here for setting up Shopify Payments. I'm sure you'll be up and running in no time!
Let me know if you have any more questions, happy to help!
Thanks for the response here! Generally speaking, we require a physical presence in the country you would like to use Shopify Payments from. So for this case, as you would like to use Shopify Payments in the UK, a UK passport/ID would be ideal. However, this is taken on a case by case basis! If you do not have a UK passport, you could also submit your UAE passport as well as your other documents to be considered for using Shopify Payments.
I've touched base with our Financial Services team about this for you. They have let me know they will reach out to the email account linked to your Forums account here to send you more information on using Shopify Payments.
Let me know what you think!
You may not be in a region where Shopify Payments is available. Can I ask what country you have set in the admin under Settings > General?
