Hi. Any news about when Shopify Payments will be launched in Norway? We have been waiting for a really long time now... 😵💫

And we need SP to be able to join Shopify Market, isn't that right?

Thanks...

Hi, @!

Thanks for reaching out about this!

Shopify Payments is yet to be released in Norway and we thank you for your patience with this! While we don't have a specific timeline for the release yet, you can definitely keep an eye on our announcement page where we post any new updates or developments. We do have third-party gateways that are available in Norway and you can find the full list here.

Are you able to advise me of which gateway you're currently using ? Are there any particular features that you would prefer to have by switching over to Shopify Payments?

You've also mentioned the use of Shopify Payments in the new released Shopify Markets. There will be certain features of Shopify Markets that will require the accessibility to Shopify Payments however this feature will still be available to all merchants globally. Shopify Markets will have amazing features available such as :

  • Translating your store in up to 20 languages.
  • Setting up country-specific domains from a single store to optimize your international SEO and ensure that buyers land on the right version of your website.
  • Automatic calculation of import fees at checkout

Here is a great link for more information on Shopify Markets.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Yes, Shopify Markets and going big international is the main reason why we are waiting for Shopify Payments. Right now we have severals of gateways for the Norwegian market, but for our international customers we are using a 3party checkout called TeleCheckout. With TeleCheckout the local currency is displayed, but we offer only Stripe and Paypal with that checkout.

Shopify Payments will change our whole business...

We are really waiting for more information about when it will be launched in Norway.... 😬

Hi, @!

Thank you for your response!

Shopify Payments is definitely a feature that would be beneficial for your business so we appreciate your patience with us. While we don't have an exact release date for this, we can only provide you with the resources to stay updated on this in the present time. I had included a link to our Shopify News and Announcements section above, I would also like to provide you with our Shopify Changelog that you can check daily for a timeline based update on initiatives rolled out by Shopify.

Please let me know if you have any further questions!

What are the certain features that will still require Shopify Payments? Since you don't allow the sales of food supplements, we lost the functionality of offering different price lists to different markets. Will we be able to do this with Shopify Markets even though we were kicked out of Shopify Payments?

I'm eagerly anticipating this to be able to define prices for my products in multiple currencies (for instance NOK for my local market and USD for the rest of the world). Any news on availability for this?

Here's another request for Shopify Payments in Norway. I'm losing sales by not being able to present prices in USD. or Euros, and I expect that for the cost of my Shopify plan, I'd like to be able to utilize Shopify payments and not some third party plug in.

I agree with all these comments. I am getting REALLY frustrated with how much we contribute to Shopify and your services, yet our business suffers! We are at the verge of opening a 2nd store solely for the US market, which will mean double work for us. Double sites, double SoMe accounts! 😫 As a business, we want a universal tone on ALL our channels, not separate per country. Shopify Payment is stopping us from this and this option should be global. What is the hold-up!?

Yours truly, A VERY FED UP CUSTOMER!

And Shopify gets double your business, so it’s not much incentive for them to accommodate your request. But I feel your frustration. I started my Shopify site in the US before moving to Norway. I wish I had left it in the US but I didn’t want to risk breaking laws by operating in the US while residing in Norway (and I’m a very small business). I hope more people request this feature so Shopify prioritizes this in Norway!
