We are running a Shopify hosted online store in Indonesia and are having troubles offering functioning payment providers. For now we are only using PayPal which works great but cost quite a lot. Any money we wish to send from our PayPal balance to our bank account needs to be received in Indonesian Rupiah in an Indonesian bank account. We lose crazy amounts on the terrible exchange rates PayPal handles.
There are no real alternatives Shopify offers for their Indonesian customers. When will your Indonesian customers have access to Stripe, Shopify Payments, etc? What's holding Shopify back?
Please advise and let us know if there are good alternatives. The payment providers listed by Shopify for Indonesia are just terrible. We have used a few and these were just nightmare scenarios. Can't really believe Shopify let's some of those be allowed on the platform.
Many thanks. Jeroen
Hello @JMVDK !
Here are alternative payment processors available for Indonesia on Shopify:
6. Payment Wall
10. Local cards, Bank Transfers and Cash Payments
Hope this helps!
Thanks for that. I have seen that list on our Shopify account and have tried most of them. We have had good experience with Sezzle but I can't really understand why Shopify lets some of those payment processors advertise their services on their platform..
Really wish we would be allowed to use some reputable and functional payment processors..
