Dear @Mohamedsalah 

Setting up Shopify Payments for your business, given that you are based in Egypt with a company and a director in the UK, should be feasible without major issues. The key requirements for using Shopify Payments in the UK include having a Shopify store based in the UK, a UK bank account, and a valid government-issued ID from the UK. Additionally, the individual setting up the account needs to be a significant control person, such as an owner, senior executive, or director, and must provide personal details that match their legal government-issued ID.

Since your company is based in the UK and you have a director living there with access to a UK bank account, these requirements appear to be met. It's crucial that the director, as the account representative, has the legal authority to bind your company to Shopify Payments Terms of Service.

Also, it's important to complete the Shopify Payments account setup, including all business details and banking information, within 21 days of your first sale. This is particularly relevant for stores in the European Union, where you must complete this setup before you can accept payments.

In summary, as long as the legal and banking requirements are satisfied in the UK, and the director is able to provide the necessary information and verifications, setting up Shopify Payments for your store should not pose significant obstacles.

I hope this helps.

All the Best
