Hello,

I am looking to integrate Stripe Checkout into my Shopify store, but I am having trouble locating it in the payment providers section or third-party providers. Can anyone provide guidance on how to resolve this issue? I have attempted to switch to a third-party provider from the Shopify payment settings, but I cannot seem to find Stripe. Can anyone assist me with this? Does deactivating shopify payment can help with this? Can i Add stripe while shopify payment available or it should be one of them? If I deactivate Shopify payments, will I be able to activate it again? Thank you in advance for your assistance

Integrating Stripe directly with your Shopify store can be a bit tricky because Shopify Payments, which is the default payment gateway for Shopify, is powered by Stripe. As a result, Shopify typically doesn't allow direct integration with Stripe when Shopify Payments is available in your region. Here are some important points and steps to consider:

Key Points

  1. Shopify Payments: This is Shopify's built-in payment gateway, powered by Stripe. If Shopify Payments is available in your country, it will be the default and preferred method, and Shopify does not allow you to add Stripe directly as a third-party payment gateway in this case.

  2. Deactivating Shopify Payments: Deactivating Shopify Payments will allow you to explore other third-party payment providers, but Stripe might not appear as an option because Shopify prefers to keep its Stripe relationship exclusive to Shopify Payments.

  3. Reactivating Shopify Payments: Yes, you can reactivate Shopify Payments if you deactivate it, but you need to go through the setup process again.

Steps to Check and Switch Payment Providers

  1. Check Availability:

    • Go to your Shopify admin.
    • Navigate to Settings > Payments.
  2. Deactivate Shopify Payments (if you decide to proceed):

    • In the Payments section, click on Manage next to Shopify Payments.
    • Scroll down and click Deactivate Shopify Payments.
    • Confirm your decision in the dialog that appears.
  3. Add a Third-Party Provider:

    • After deactivating Shopify Payments, go back to Settings > Payments.
    • Under Third-party providers, click Choose a provider.
    • Look for available third-party payment gateways.
  4. Alternative Solution - Using Stripe with Shopify:

    • If you specifically need features from Stripe that are not available through Shopify Payments, consider using a service like Zapier or Automate.io to create integrations between Stripe and Shopify.
    • Alternatively, you can use a custom checkout solution where you redirect customers to a separate checkout page that uses Stripe Checkout, but this involves more complex setup and maintenance.

Considerations

  • Why Use Shopify Payments: Shopify Payments typically offer better integration with Shopify, lower transaction fees, and easier management directly from your Shopify admin.
  • Transaction Fees: Using third-party payment gateways can incur additional transaction fees on top of Stripe's fees, as Shopify charges extra for using non-Shopify Payment gateways.

Summary

  • If Shopify Payments is available and active, you typically cannot add Stripe directly as a third-party payment provider.
  • Deactivating Shopify Payments might allow you to add other third-party providers, but Stripe might still not be available.
  • For special use cases needing Stripe, consider using integration tools or custom checkout solutions.

Re-enabling Shopify Payments

If you decide to switch back:

  • Go to Settings > Payments.
  • Click Activate Shopify Payments.
  • Follow the prompts to set it up again.

This way, you can explore third-party options, and if they do not meet your needs, you can always revert to Shopify Payments.

Hello Leo,

 

Thank you for providing clarification on integrating Stripe with Shopify. I currently use Zapier for my business email in the Shopify admin. I was interested in using Shopify Payments, but when I reached out to Shopify support to check my eligibility, they informed me that I am not eligible to use their payment gateway because I am not a resident of any of the supported countries. Even though I reside in Egypt and own an LTD company in the UK, they said I am not a resident of the UK either. but after some online research, I found that I can use Stripe with my LTD details even though I am a non-resident in the UK. However, I could not locate Stripe in the payment section. 

 

Additionally, Stripe offers the option to link an e-wallet or virtual bank account to the platform, which Shopify Payments does not. Stripe also provides fraud protection and handles disputes and chargebacks directly, but I am unsure if Shopify Payments offers these options. Shopify has escalated my ticket and informed me that it must be resolved by the Shopify Payments team.

Thank you for your assistance .

Hello Leo,

I hope this message finds you well. I have successfully integrated my existing account with Stripe to Shopify. However, when I go to checkout to test if Stripe is activated in my Shopify store, I do not see any available Stripe methods. I only see PayPal as an alternative option. When I contacted Stripe, they mentioned they do not have access to my store backend. I tried to fix this on my own, but when I reached out to Stripe again, they advised me to contact my website developer to check the integration.

I do not have experience in coding, so I am unsure if connecting Stripe to Shopify requires coding, especially for the embedded checkout form. Can you provide guidance on where I can add these codes? Additionally, Stripe mentioned that I need to verify the ownership of my domain in order to activate Apple Pay and Google Pay. However, I am unsure of how to do this.

Any assistance or advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
