Hi everybody,

I work for my customer in Korea, owner of a shop. He would like to add naver and other payments.
I saw several posts about gateway options for south korean stores. You recommanded 2Checkout in 2015, but in 2017, it has very bad feedbacks on trustpilot.

Is it possible to developp an API in ruby/liquid ?   Any other solutions, except Paypal Express ?

 

thanks for answering

Hi proj, 

Nick here from Shopify. 

I looked into this for you and spoke to a technical team. 2Checkout and PayPal Express Checkout are still your best bet for South Korea at the moment. I know this isn't ideal based on what you posted but as of right now it is the most viable option. 

It certainly is possible to build your own API or gateway as such, but it is quite complex and would more than likely require the assistance of a Shopify Expert and also could be expensive which is why I lead more to use 2Checkout or PayPal Express Checkout for now. 

Hope this helps!

All the best, Nick

Hi Nick, we are planning to open our Korean shop next month, are these still the best available payment options for S. Korea?

Kind regards
