I just begin a new on line Shopify Store, i live in Thailand and i already spent 4 days to try to find a payment provider. Here the choice is very poor and every providers has his own requirements. Lot of them ask you to have a register company but i want to start as individual. Do you know some who are less demanding ? I have already PayPal but i really think that's is not enough because a lot of people don't have paypal account. Thanks for your help and advice.

Choosing a payment gateway is one of the most important decisions to make when running a store, so taking the time to decide which one to use, is vital.
As you are based in Thailand, there are a number of payment gateways available for you to use, which I will share with you here.
Each payment gateway would have their own verification requirements, but this would be for your own security, as well as meeting their standards.
Other Community members may offer their own feedback, but I know for instance 2Checkout is a very popular one within Thailand.
I hope this helps, but let me know if you have any further questions!
All the best,
As they are a third-party payment gateway, we would not have any abilities to speak about their authentication review process.
But the payment gateways available are purely those that are approved in your region and would be a decision made by the store owner, rather than Shopify recommending a gateway.
While Shopify payments are not yet available to you, I truly hope that you find a payment gateway to aid you in offering ways for your customers to pay in addition to PayPal.
I understand your point but as I mentioned, as the store is 100% your own, this is why it would be your decision of what payment gateway you would want to use within rather than Shopify's.
There are more payment gateways being added constantly to the platform, as we want to be able to offer our Merchants as many choices as possible.
