I am currently based out from India and so is my registered proprietorship, bank account etc.
My store is www.bedlam.store
I am toying with the idea of partnering with an Australian contact and sell my products in Australia.
I have decided to opt for the Multi-Region Store option as listed here:
I have some technical questions and if anyone with a similar set can help, I will be grateful:
Can I operate the second store with my Indian bank account? I am planning to use Stripe or Google Pay, but I wasn't sure if I needed an Australian Bank Account? My Indian payment gateway does accept foreign transactions, however I would want something that The Aussies are familiar with to build the trust.
I am also open to using ShopPay. But my bank account is Indian. Even though the second store will have AUD as the default currency. Can I activate it with and Indian bank account? ShopPay is not available in India currently.
I will be paying my taxes in India. Do I need to register my company in Australia? My plan is to show it as export.
Can I export my paid theme to the second store? Or do I need to buy the theme again?
I will have an Australia specific collection but some inventory will be universal. However, prices on the India store and Australia store will be different. Idea is to land the Aussie client straight to the Aussie site. Is this possible?
Any help or observations will help.
Hope it helps!
