Hi, does Shopify allow PayPal express check out to be linked for payments to be received in a South Korean bank account? I have clicked on activate paypal account and granted permission too, but when i get back to my payment option page in Shopify, there is no change in the paypal option. It says again to activate paypal express check out? Help please!

Sorry to hear that. It seems like Shopify doesn't support PayPal integration in South Korea - please see this thread: https://community.shopify.com/c/Payments-Shipping-Fulfillment/Payment-Gateway-Options-for-South-Kore...

 

Check also this Shopify guide - Ways to accept Payments in South Korea: https://www.shopify.co.uk/payment-gateways/south-korea

 

It seems like only these providers are available in your country:

 

  • 2Checkout
  • Asiabill
  • BitPay
  • Cartão de Crédito e Boleto via EBANX
  • Coinbase Commerce
  • GoCoin
  • PayPal Express Checkout
  • Sezzle
  • Splitit Monthly Payments

 

Hope it helps, and please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions!

Hi Maggie, you mentioned that PayPal express checkout is available in South Korea. This is what I have been trying to connect to on my Shopify. I clicked on the 'activate paypal express checkout' option under payment options in Shopify, logged into my paypal account to grant permission, and went back to my shopify account, and yet it asks me to activate paypal express checkout again. How do i resolve this?

Hi Nattang - please feel free to read my reply in detail. It mentions Shopify DOES NOT support PayPal in your location. It also mentions which payment gateways are available where you live. Hope it helps.

I am asking how is it that I am unable to link PayPal Express Checkout in my shopify since you mentioned PayPal express checkout is one of the options in South Korea.

Yes PayPal Express Checkout is available, as listed. However without analyzing your integration, I am unable to give you a reply on the forum. Your best bet is to contact PayPal and Shopify teams to resolve this issue. Discussion on the forum can only give you a response as to whether PayPal is available in your country, as you originally requested.
