Shopify and Stripe Connect in the UK.

Hello, 

We are a marketplace (yet to launch) and would like to use Shopify in conjunction with Stripe Connect to power the marketplace. I have a development team who are tailoring Shopify for a two-sided marketplace, however, as we are based in the UK, we are unsure if Stripe Connect works for a UK-based store:

The Shopify gateway page does not list Stripe:

https://www.shopify.ca/payment-gateways/united-kingdom

 

Has anybody experience of getting these two technologies (Shopify and Stripe Connect) to work in the UK? 

 

Regards

Craig Smith

Hey Craig,

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify :)

Great question! When it comes to Shopify and Stripe, we've actually built a connection between the two which we call Shopify Payments! It's our recommended payment gateway and it's actually powered by Stripe, which is why in countries where this gateway is available, Stripe won't be an option. So in your case, Shopify Payments is available in the UK, and that would be your best bet. 

You can find out more about Shopify Payments on this page in our manual, including information on fees, payout times, how to connect it to your store and more! 

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread :) 

Have a great one,
Ann

Hi Ann, 

I understand that Shopify Payments is powered by Stripe. However, in my case I want to use the marketplace payments capability of Stripe Connect so we can manage how we take payment from the buyer and pay the seller. 

Therefore, if I understand correctly, Shopify Payments is not capable of managing marketplace payments, correct?

If this is the case, can you tell me how I enable Stripe in the UK so we can use Stripe Connect? If we operated a basic eCommerce platform then Shopify Payments is an obvious choice.

Adding more info and questions. 

Can you enable my Shopify account to use Stripe Connect?

If not, is it possible to use a hybrid of Shopify Payments for taking the payment from the customer and we can then connect Shopify Payments to Stripe Connect in order to pay the seller and handle our commission?

Hey Craig, 

I'm not familiar with Stripe Connect myself, but looking at the link you sent, it seems that you can automatically set up your payouts to be sent to other people. With Shopify Payments, that isn't a feature we have. How our payment gateway works is that once you get an order, we send you that payout directly to the bank account of your choosing. If there is a way for you to set up Stripe Connect for sending out money once you receive it, that would be something you would need to do outside of Shopify. 

Additionally, at this time, there is no way to enable Stripe in countries where Shopify Payments is offered. That said, I can definitely see how this would be beneficial for your business model specifically. I will pass this feedback along to our team for sure! 

Let me know if that answers your questions! 

Have a great one,
Ann

Hi Everyone!

I have recently developed a custom integration for Stripe Connect with Shopify for another merchant - it has two parts:

- A Payment gateway to accept payments through Stripe Connect;
- A system to help and distribute part of the values involved in an order - to different connected Stripe Connect accounts;

Both were made to help my client to comply with this https://stripe.com/ie/connect/eu-guide
If you're interested in a similar solution - please let me know here and/or book a call with me at: https://calendly.com/joao-dkh

João
