Hi,
Hope you are doing well. I'm here with a concern about Shopify payments. I've UK limited company but I'm a non-UK resident. So, I haven't any physical banks located in the UK. Can I receive my payment with transfer wise? If not, please suggest the best way so I can withdraw my payments from shopify payments. Thank You

Hi @wow-infinity.

 

For Shopify Payments UK, it's required that the bank account connected is a full checking account based in the United Kingdom. Virtual or money-transferring accounts, such as TransferWise, aren't supported by Shopify Payments as they aren't recognised as a full bank account. Using these types of accounts to connect to your store's Shopify Payments account may lead to disruption in your payout deposits. We have a full guide on Shopify Payments UK here if you'd like more information on this.

 

If you'd like to discuss your situation further with our team however, I recommend getting in touch with our live support team if you haven't already done so. We'll be able to securely authenticate you against the correct account to further discuss your options.

 

To get in touch with our team, you'll need to login to your store via our help centre here. Once logged in, select a topic that best fits your query or situation. From there, you'll be taken to a page with a list of relevant support articles, and you can scroll to the bottom of that page to select your preferred contact method with our team.
