I want to setup a shopify store for my business based in India. Guess shopify doesn't support shopify payments in India and I want to use a third party payment gateway. I want to know if I use it, would I still be charged a transaction fee from Shopify apart from the payment gateway provider's transacton fee..?

That is correct, Shopify Payments is not available in India.
If you use a third-party gateway, you would be charged a transaction fee per order. You can view our pricing and plans page which list the transaction fees charged for each plan, here: Shopify Pricing in India.
There may be an additional fee charged by the third-party gateway. To find out if there is one, I recommend checking out the third-party gateways website for support. We have a list of third-party gateways in India, here: Payment Gateways in India.
I understand how Shopify Payments would be beneficial for merchants like yourself, in India, so I am happy to add your name to the list of interested merchants who are requesting this feature. If it's added, we will announce it to you and all of our merchants, and it will be listed in our changelog.
Let me know if that helps!
Please add my account to your list of interested merchants for shopify partner payment gateways.

I would be happy to add your name to the list of merchants wanting Shopify Payments for their location. What is your myshopify.com URL and where are you located?

Thank you for your store URL. I've added your store to our feedback list to request for Shopify Payments in India.
I'm also facing a similar dilemma. My store is in India, but my customer base is in the US, so I accept only USD.
I have checked out many third-party payment gateways for my store like PayU, PayuBiz, 2Checkout, CashFree, CCAvenue, etc. But they rejected my application saying they don't support international dropshipping.
Currently, I have only Paypal Express on my store, which leads to cart abandonments.
When Stripe is available in India, I wonder why Shopify Payments isn't here yet.
My store URL is commontrolley.myshopify.com/

Thank you for your store URL and I appreciate you sharing the details of the reason you want Shopify Payments in your location. I've gone ahead and added your store to our feedback list.
You mentioned that you're using PayPal Express Checkout as a payment method and it is causing you to receive abandoned checkouts on your store. Did a customer reach out to you about this? How did you find this out on your store?
I appreciate your prompt reply and for adding my store URL to your feedback list.
About more than a month back, a customer had added a product to his cart but later abandoned it. I checked his contact details, which seemed fine, and followed up by emailing him.
I asked him the cause of abandonment but didn't get any response. I followed up with some emails and asked if he was having any issue during checkout, but couldn't receive any response.
Since then, I had some cart abandonments. Though I've tried following up with the customers, none of them has opened up about the issue. As for my store checkout process, I've done my A/B testing. It's working fine until the very end.
I'm guessing it has to do with Paypal Express as most customers want a seamless checkout. Logically, if making a credit card payment, very few people would like to login to Paypal first and make a card payment. Only customers who are comfortable paying with Paypal will sign in to their Paypal accounts.
Thanks for sharing these details, @arun90. I'm sorry to hear that your customer didn't get back to you on the reasons they left checkout.
I think you're correct that this could be a result of reduced payment options available on your store. I appreciate that you've done your own experimenting with your checkout process.
I've gone ahead and added this to your feedback.
