How can I add a payment method to my unregistered business?

1 0 0

Hi I am from UAE and My Business is not registered yet as I just started and I am planning to get it registered once I started getting sales. My store is operating in UAE, USA, UK, CANADA & Australia. So after setting up my online shop and when I was setting up the payments I found out that my store has to be registered business for accepting payments through Payment providers such as Stripe. Kindly guide me if there is any payment method I can add in my store without registering my business. Due to this problem my whole activity is halted please Help me. Thanks

Hi @Hifza123-,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with locating a payment provider for the shop, to ensure this gets resolved.


To share some insight, Shopify has integrated with over 100 different third-party payment providers to allow you to continue accepting credit cards online. Due to this, I encourage you to check out this complete list of all available payment providers within the United Arab Emirates.


For any questions that you may have regarding a specific payment provider, I encourage you to connect with them directly. They will be able to share more information with you and advise whether a registered company is required.


For more information on this, you can check our Third-Party Payment Providers documentation as it touches on this further.  


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
