Here is my suffering story for Saudi Arabia Payment Providers it been two month until now, my website getting traffic but no sales, people laving after seeing paypal page so i decide to look for another payment provider.
and here we go :
lts start with bitcoin companies :
Bitcoin is Blocked in Saudi Arabia for more information Click Here
Since their website have no information about prices i called them & they said "The price is 3200 USD" which mean 12000 SAR to start up with them . and after i said "Really??" the agent just closed the phone.
and they have hidden information about fees Click Here
Credit Card Payments Powered by PayTabs
They Asked for 250$ for start up + 49.99$ Monthly And you must pay both at start for more information Click Here
They Asked for 112$ Monthly + i asked them in Twitter and they said "just call us" , i called the number and the agent just said "hey hey hey call me next day" with lazy voice for more information Click Here
PayPal Express Checkout
The best Free choice until now but not everybody use paypal in Saudi Arabia.
PUT IT ON LAY-BUY

i asked their support and they have 2 plan 40$ Monthly & 107$ Monthly and you cant make any money you want there is limits .
I have paid two month for shopify & two app bill just for waiting 2checkout to active my account i swear to god it was my worst customer service experience ever in my life even messenger bot is better than them i thank god that i haven't registered with them, For reviews information Click Here
Stripe ( not listed in Saudi Arabia )
i asked stripe if accept Saudi Arabia and they just asked for 500$ for start up Stripe Atlas and they don't support dropshipping. for more information Click Here
The real question is
Why do we pay the same price on subscription in Shopify when there is alot of apps not available in our country and even shopify payment getaway is not available?
Does it really hard for shopify developer to make an app that work as payment getaway for Saudi Arabia country i am ok with it if you take 4% per transaction but just make an honest payment getaway for us .
i hope someone answer us.
Same suffering since 2016 !
I am now using HyperPay on the previous platform opencart 2.3 , Unfortunately the technical support surprised me they don't have shopify plugin. The payment gateway is really expensive ( setup cost not less than $500 + transaction cost 2.5% + $0.3 + transaction shopify ).
The answer to my problem is " Go back to your old platform ".
Answer your problem " Be patient there are payment gateways like paytabs they have a sales team who always give great offers ".
thank you for this post we are suffering the same problem,
but currently we settled to use checkout.com , but it supports Mada on the Offsite 3d option only.
have you been able to find a better solution?

Have you personally dealt with urway? or if any one here have, please do share your experience.
hello I know this is out of the blue but do I contact Shopify or urway
I would like to open a shop so I would like it if you would reply quickly
if you wish to integrate any Saudi Arabia based payment gateway to a Shopify store simply get in touch with Oganro. They do local payment gateway integration service for any payment gateway from any country. Prices are really reasonable. They only charge a one time fee to integrate. no recurring fees.
Simply find a Suitable Payment provider from Saudi Arabia who can provide you very good rates and service, and sign up for their Merchant facility.
Oganro will look after next few steps, Oganro only need a developer API documentation from your preferred payment gateway partner. They usually take around 3 to 4 working days to integrate a new payment gateway.
All the best.
i am just getting started with shopify and im having the same struggle, have anyone found out what is the best option?
