Payment processing using Stripe but not using credit cards

I have been following the docs on "Completing a payment": https://help.shopify.com/en/api/guides/sales-channel-sdk/completing-a-payment#integrate-stripe-with-...

 

It's always about storing credit cards though. European payment methods are almost always between banks directly (like SOFORT, iDeal, Bancontact). Stripe uses Sources API instead of Card API for this. You tokenize the Source details instead of CC details. It still returns a token.

 

I notice that the Checkout Payment API seems to be flexible in the POST request body. Is it possible for us to store tokenized Source Tokens instead of Card Tokens from Stripe?

Hey @tolgapaksoy,

 

I can't see any mention of this in the docs - have you have a chance to experiment?

Thanks for your reply 👍

 

In order for me to try anything like this, would mean I have to:

  1. setup a Sales Channel app
  2. convince Shopify that it needs payment processing capabilites (I've tried 3 times now, never been approved :( )
  3. ask Shopify to set the Stripe Connect ID to my shop

I don't think it is possible for me to even try this out, but I would love to.
