Hello! Is there a way to use Stripe payment processor vs Shopify payments on all transactions? My business is such that many times customers request to add purchases and request to charge card on file. With Stripe, that can be done but it can't be done with Shopify payments.

Hi there, @arg1104. Thanks for reaching out to the Shopify Community with your question around Shopify Payments and Stripe. It's good to meet you!


Shopify Payments is Shopify's in-house payment processor, and offers very competitive credit card fees when compared to other gateways. Typically, you are unable to have Stripe enabled as a processor for your store, but there may be some account specific options that our authenticated Live Team can look into for you.


You'll want to reach out to the Live Team using this link to see what options are available to you and your account. As I can't authenticate folks here in the Community, I'm not privy to the options available to your account, but our Live Team will be able to get into greater detail around your potential options beyond Shopify Payments.
