Hi @strattonk 

First of all, congratulations on your store. Hope you're having a great day!

Which African country are you talking about?

Before using Shopify Payments, you need to see if you meet the requirements

Shopify Payments is not available in African countries.

Hi there @strattonk,

How is planning coming along for your business? 

Since you are based in Rwanda, you can choose from any of these support payment gateways. Once you've created an account with one of these providers, you can connect that account in your Shopify admin following these steps:

  1. From your Shopify admin, visit Settings > Payments.
  2. Scroll down to the section Third-party providers and click Choose third-party provider.
  3. Select your payment gateway. 
  4. Enter your account details. 
  5. Click Activate.

Please don't hesitate to let me know if you run into any challenges!
