Thank you for reaching out!
As of now, Shopify Payments is not currently available in South Africa. However, Shopify has been working on expanding its payment services to several countries, including South Africa.
In the meantime, merchants in South Africa can still use other payment gateways available on Shopify, such as PayPal, SagePay, IPay, PayFast, or 2Checkout, to process payments from customers.
Please let me know if you have any further questions! I would love to learn more about your business. What type of products do you sell?
Hi Emily, the problem is that we cant have international shoppers checkout in their own currency because their cart converts back to South African Rands at checkout. All the solutions to this are not available in South Africa. Paypal does not support Rands and all the apps that enable currency to stay in international shoppers currency require shopify payments. This really kills any chance of international trade with shopify if you live in South Africa. Do you have any kind of idea as to when it will be available in SA?
You use other payment gateways and wait for the payment area upgrade to the country you are living in.
There are many other countries that are having the same problem as you.
