Hi, @SealDez.

 

I really appreciate you expressing your interest in using Shopify Payments on your store.

 

Shopify Payments continues to expand (most recently to France and Finland). While I don't have a timeline to provide regarding when and where it will be available next, I have submitted a request on your behalf to our developers. You can keep an eye on the Shopify Changelog for updates.

 

Have you already decided on a third-party payment provider to use for the time being? I'm also curious to know whether your store has launched or whether you're still working on store setup. Let me know if there's anything you need help with!

I am also from Estonia and requesting Shopify payments, even our neighboring country Finland has it. Because we don't have it, we pay significantly more fees, while in Baltics the main payment processing method, bank initiation service, is free for WordPress. Shopify does not allow it!

We are a physical store using shopify pos also selling online. here is our webstore Hypebeastbaltics.com. We would like to continue using shopify, but it is getting very expensive and it is a reason why alot of people in Estonia-Baltics choose to not use Shopify!

Thank you for expressing your interest in Shopify Payments, @hypebeastbaltic! I have submitted a request to our developers on your behalf. Can you tell me more about the bank initiation service? Would a manual payment method like bank deposit or money order work for your store?

hi so a bank initiation service is where a customer chooses bank as payment
method and it goes to the bank with the right sum, and customer just needs
to confirm payment, confirm on phone (usually) with any kind of validation
method, and the payment goes through, then it goes to the thank you page.
This is the best payment method locally as everyone is familiar with it
and feewise, as it does not uses a credit card, this payment method is very
cheap, if not free for us website owners.
A good example of this service is montonio, used by for example, reede.ee.
I know that maksekeskus is already partnering with you, but they are one
of the most expensive providers and charge even more than credit card fees,
making it pointless to use them. The main reason is still to save costs
compared to cc fees.
Sincerely,
Jialin

Thanks for the additional information, Jialin! I've submitted a request to our developers for consideration in future updates.
