Looking for Costa Rican currency payment

Hello, I am looking for a payment gateway for Costa Rica (CRC) and I can not find one that works for me.

I clarify that I already reviewed the alternatives at https://www.shopify.com/payment-gateways/costa-rica

I try to configure PayPal Express Checkout and selecting it tells me that the store's currency is not compatible with this payment method.

BitPay, Coinbase Commerce and GoCoin are for receiving payments in cryptocurrencies, not in CRC.

There are 2 alternatives that are PUT IT ON LAY-BUY and 2Checkout, about the first I see many negative comments, which generates mistrust and 2Checkout could work unless to get money I have to hire another service as Payoner that charges me additional commission.

I would like to use Paypal, is there any way to do it using CRC as a store currency? Do I have any other alternative apart from those mentioned in this post?

Regards!

Hi Cesar, 

Nick here from Shopify. 

Really good questions and research. To answer your last question first, currently, you would need to use one of the payment gateways Shopify is partnered with in the link you provided above. I will, however, make this a feature request for CRC to our team on your behalf for the future. 

You are able to set your store's primary currency as CRC which you can see here (to do this you would need to go into Settings > General> Standards and formats) and make Paypal your gateway so that is one option. 

I know it might not be ideal from what you mentioned but other than Paypal, 2Checkout is definitely the most popular and reliable payment gateway listed in the ones Shopify is partnered with for Costa Rica. 

Hope this helps answer some of your questions and guide you on some next steps. 

All the best, Nick

Hi, thanks for your response.

I was investigating a little more and I found a service from a third party called "pagadito.com", I asked them about my situation and they do not have integration with Shopify, but I can generate a payment button that links to your site. Can I use some of this?

Hi Cesar, 

I did some investigating on this for you. It doesn't seem like it is something which would be possible. The reason being is that puts a button on another side that sends the customer back to the Shopify checkout on your store. To be able to do what you are looking for, you would need an actual method of payment of sorts, a gateway like the ones listed in the document that would go through the Shopify checkout. Your best bet to get this to work, if it would be possible at all, would be to reach out to a Shopify Expert about implementing this for you. 

I hope that makes it clear on why that is but don't hesitate to reach out should you have any other questions about it. 

Cheers, Nick

Has anyone been able to successfully setup a checkout using CRC?

I am trying to set the account with 2Checkout but it's not clear if I will be able to process payments in colones. I've been trying to work around this for a long time...any pointers are helpful.

 

Thanks
