Hello everyone! 

I'm here to ask if as an African I have a chance to run my online business on shopify because since I've launched it I still have worry about Payment Account Settings at Checkout. So how do I do?

Hey, Alyah!

Savannah here from the Shopify Guru Team. :) 

You're more than welcome to use Shopify in Africa. When it comes to setting up a payment gateway, you'll need to connect one of these third-party options. PayPal Express would likely be a good fit! 

Let me know if you have any further questions!

I'm in Uganda and Paypal only offers personal accounts to my country that can only send but not recieve money. I doubt I'll have access to Paypal Express.

Is there anyway I can get shopify since even others like Stripe and Auhorise.net are not available to my country?
