You can certainly create a Shopify store if you're in Greece. We're available in most countries. Rather than linking your Shopify account directly with your bank, you'd use a payment gateway who will send payouts to your bank account. You can find a list of payment gateways available for Greece in this guide.
I would suggest using a credit card gateway such as 2Checkout and also set up Paypal Express to give your customers options and increase your chances of closing the sale.
I love that you're creating your own unique products, that sounds exciting.

Hi @Urga .
@Aria's was absolutely right.
Just to make sure that you are aware though, Stripe is officially available now in Greece, so you can create a free account, collect payments with Visa or any other credit card on your Shopify store and have your Shopify payouts sent to your preferred IBAN.
Hope this helps,
Is there a way to connect my shopify store with Greek bank api.This because i would like to offer installment payment to my customers and through a Greek bank i can get prepayment for all my sales that will be through customers installment payments
You can find all the available payment methods in this guide.
For accepting instalments from your customers, you could try Splitit Monthly Payments.
How cool it is that Shopify takes care of their customers so thoroughly. I am pleasantly surprised that the author received an answer to his question and even an invitation to business courses. I have already taken some business and team leadership simulations courses. I got a good base, but now I would like to take Shopify courses to compare the results. I think marketing on Instagram is something qualitatively new for me.
