Hi @Keryn,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some guidance on this request, to ensure it gets resolved. 


As it currently stands, Shopify Payments is supported in over 20 different countries. It is considered the premier payment gateway for many merchants across the platform. With that being said, Shopify Payments is not currently available within South Africa. While I can completely understand the impact of this, we hope to add more countries within the future. 


To continue accepting credit cards online however, you can check out our list of third-party payment providers. Shopify has integrated with over 100 different third-party payment providers to assist with your business needs. For more information on this, you can check our Third-Party Payment Providers documentation as it touches on this further.


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
