Is is possible to start a store without Paypal for a while and rely on Shopify Payments as the payment provider?

Hi @rocknroll,


Nick here from Shopify. 


That is absolutely ok to do and many stores don't even incorporate PayPal at all. This won't affect your store negatively in any way and once you're ready to add PayPal it will be an extra method for your customers to pay. I would definitely suggest to open your store regardless of PayPal and then add it down the line when you're ready. 


Shopify has some helpful guides about setting up your PayPal and Shopify Payments which you can find here and here


All the best, Nick
