Hello, I am from Ghana - Africa, and only paystack gateway is available in my country. so let say i  don't want to sell in my local currency (GHC). I Want  my store currency to be in USD, would it be possible to accept USD Payment in my country with the other payment gateway listed in shopify?

Hi, @Nicholas233!

I'm Miles from the Social Care team at Shopify. Shopify has partnered with leading international payment providers to support your sales efforts. Your customers can pay in their local currency using their preferred payment method.

At this stage, you'll only be able to use payment gateways available in the country or region that you live. You're not able to choose a gateway based on where you are selling to. For example, Shopify Payments is available to US residents, but not available to those who sell their products to US customers. You can view a full list of available gateways in Ghana here, and I've named a couple for you below.

  • BitPay
  • Paysera payment gateway
  • Paystack

I hope this helps to clarify the payment provider situation for you.
