Hey @Sahilaneja 

To enable international payments on your Indian website, you'll need to ensure that you have the necessary payment gateway and settings in place. Here's a general process to follow:


  1. Choose a payment gateway that supports international transactions: Not all payment gateways in India support international payments, so you need to select a gateway that specifically offers this feature. Some popular payment gateways in India that support international payments include PayPal, Stripe, and 2Checkout. Research and compare these options to find the one that suits your requirements.

  2. Sign up and configure your payment gateway account: Once you've selected a payment gateway, sign up for an account and complete the necessary registration process. Provide the required information, such as your business details and bank account information, to set up your payment gateway account.

  3. Enable international payment acceptance: Within your payment gateway account settings, look for options to enable international payment acceptance. This may involve configuring specific settings related to currency conversion, fraud detection, and risk management. Consult the documentation or support resources provided by your chosen payment gateway for detailed instructions on enabling international payments.

  4. Integrate the payment gateway with your website: Depending on the payment gateway you've chosen, there are different integration methods available. Most payment gateways provide developer documentation and plugins to assist with integration. Follow the instructions provided by your payment gateway to integrate it into your website's checkout process. This may involve adding code snippets, installing plugins or extensions, or using a payment gateway-specific API.

  5. Test the international payment functionality: Once the integration is complete, conduct thorough testing to ensure that international payments are working correctly. Test transactions using international cards or simulated test environments provided by your payment gateway. Verify that the payments are being processed successfully and the funds are being deposited into your designated bank account.

  6. Update your website's policies and checkout process: Make sure to update your website's policies and checkout process to inform international customers about accepted payment methods and any additional fees or currency conversion rates that may apply.

  7. Communicate with your payment gateway's support team: If you encounter any issues during the integration process or need assistance with enabling international payments, reach out to the support team of your payment gateway. They can provide guidance specific to their platform and help resolve any concerns or technical difficulties.

By following these steps and working with a payment gateway that supports international payments, you'll be able to enable international card acceptance on your Indian website and cater to customers from around the world.

Hi @Sahilaneja 

This is Richard from PageFly - Shopify Page Builder App, I’d like to suggest this idea:

GST guide for Shopify stores in India

If you have a Shopify store that is based in India, this article will tell you how to correctly configure taxes with respect to the new tax legislation.

As of July 1, 2017, Goods and Services Tax (GST) has to be charged on all goods and services provided by online stores in India. GST replaces previous taxes collected by the Central government and by the State and brings them together under one unified tax.

There are three different taxes united under GST: State Goods and Services Tax (SGST), Central Goods and Services Tax (CGST) and Integrated Goods and Services Tax (IGST). 

What is SGST, CGST and IGST?

  • State GST (SGST) is a GST collected by the State on intra-state sales. 
  • Central GST (CGST) is a GST collected by the Central government on intra-state sales.
  • Integrated GST (IGST) is a GST collected by the Central gevernment on inter-state sales. IGST also applies on imported goods and services.


Intra-state sales are transactions carried out within one federal state (e.g. Maharashtra). Inter-state sales are those transactions that happen in between states (e.g. selling from Maharashtra to Goa).

For example, a store based in Maharashtra selling items taxed at 18% will charge:


  • SGST 9% + CGST 9% to a customer in Maharashtra (intra-state).
  • IGST 18% to a customer in Goa (inter-state).

Online stores based in union territories (such as Delhi) should charge Union Territory GST (UTGST) instead of SGST on intra-state sales. 

There are four different tax rates (tax slabs): 5%, 12%, 18% and 28%. These tax rates vary depending on what kind of products you sell.

Hope you find my answer helpful!
