Hi there!

 

I got a question regarding Shopify Payments, is it achievable to have it in the country where it is not supported?

(I live in a country where Shopify Payments is not supported).

 

1. If I let's say open a bank account in Germany (I'm European citizen) and connect it to Shopify, then the price at the checkout will show EURO or the currency of my country? I'm almost sure that it will be € as it's the basic currency of the bank I have an account in. 

Besides that, Shopify Payments accepts payments in multiple currencies and it would be nice to have converted price at the checkout to the currency the country I'm selling in (e.g. UK).

2.  If I use an internet connection from my local provider and then connect to the server via VPN e.g. in the UK, will option Shopify Payments be available?

 

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Hey there, @luigi_07 

 

Bo here from Shopify Support! 

 

That is a really great question. This is not possible, Shopify Payments can only be used in stores that are based in supported countries. I have seen cases where merchants have tried the workarounds you have mentioned and it does not work in the long term. We are rapidly expanding our payment gateway to more countries. To do so, we need to make sure that the version of our gateway we launch in said country is compliant to the requirements of that country so while we would like to provide the service to all merchants immediately, our banking partners cannot do this. 

 

To use Shopify Payments you need to be based in a supported country (your store address and IP address must reflect this), use a supported currency and have a bank account in the same country that you are based in. 

 

When Shopify Payments becomes available in your country we will be sure to reach out via email. 

 

All the Best,

Bo

Hey there, @Carvans 

 

I understand you have been waiting for a long time, we are still working on getting Shopify Payments spread to as many countries as possible. As per my answer above, Shopify Payments will be unable to support your store at the moment. 

 

All the Best,

Bo

Dear Team,

 

My store is based in India and my currency right now is in INR but I want to cater to people all over the world. The prices right now are shown in INR and when the checkout happens it is also in INR. I want a multi currency selector so that someone accessing my store in the US can change it to USD and then everywhere they will see prices in USD. My store is linked to a local Indian bank so the actual money that comes in my account will be in INR after conversion. 

How can I achieve the following that is have a multi currency selector feature on my store?

Or like based on geolocation the pricing can automatically change.

 

Thank you for your time and help in advance.

 

Best regards,

Aditya
