I want to connect my Shopify website to Stripe. The country I am in is Cyprus ( I’m international student ) , but I have an account in a Turkish bank whose IBAN number starts with the TR code. I want to know, considering that Turkey is not among the countries accepted by Stripe, can I use this bank account for a Stripe account? Or must my bank account be related to Cyprus? Please help me

Dear @ghazalghal 

In your case, since Turkey is not among the countries accepted by Stripe, and your bank account is Turkish (TR IBAN), you might face challenges using this account for Stripe in Cyprus. Typically, you would need a bank account related to Cyprus, especially since Stripe requires a physical bank account in the country of operation, and Cyprus is a supported country by Stripe.


The best approach to resolve your issue is to register with a local payment gateway provider in Turkey, such as iyzico or PayU Turkey. It's important to note that obtaining an online merchant facility from these providers requires you to have a registered business entity. This process is usually straightforward and not overly time-consuming.

Once you have chosen your preferred local payment provider and completed the necessary setup, we can assist you in seamlessly integrating them with your Shopify store. If you need further details or assistance, please feel free to send us a direct message.

Thanks & Kind Regards,
