Shopify Payments Question

Does shopify payments require my corporate bank account to be in the same country as where the business is registered?

Example: If my company is registered in Hong Kong, does that mean that i need to have a Hong Kong bank account in order to use shopify payments to receive payments?

Are there any other alternatives? or is this the case with paypal, stripe and other third party payment providers?

If you were looking for an alternative solution, there are a number of other payment gateways merchants in Hong Kong can use to process transactions. You would need to check with each provider directly for bank account requirements:
