Hello,

I'd like to use Stripe for payments on my Shopify website, I've seen conflicting information on this. One post suggested I could contact support and they would add the option.

Hi, @arw24

Stripe is available to select countries, and can only be added if you are operating in one of those countries. That said, if you're operating in a country that is eligible for Shopify Payments, then Stripe will not be available as Stripe powers Shopify Payments and offers many of the same features you'd get if you were using Stripe directly. You can view all available payment providers for your country here

Assuming you are operating in a country where Shopify Payments is available, it would not be possible to disable Shopify Payments to allow for the use of Stripe. However; I would love to hear your feedback on why you'd prefer using Stripe over Shopify Payments.

Our other websites utilize Stripe for payments. I need all my websites to
use the same processor. I’ve got Zapier set up to automate my work and I
can’t do that with Shopify if I can’t have Stripe for payments. --

Thank you for the context. The only way that would be possible is if all of your stores are based within countries where Stripe is eligible. Otherwise, you would need to use Shopify Payments (if applicable), or an alternative payment provider.

Hello,

I have the same problem. I really want to link my existing Stripe account with Shopify and not create a new stripe / Shopify account altogether.

Can you help with this?

I am based in Japan

Stripe doesn't appear as a Third Party App 😞

It is not possible to use Stripe if Shopify Payments is available for your region. You will want to use Shopify Payments to accept credit card payments or use another available payment provider for Japan.

Hey Peter, I'm in the US and have a Webapp that is already setup with Stripe. We need a storefront and we're interested in using Shopify. I see that Shopify payments is powered by Stripe, but what does that mean? Does that mean that I can link the two accounts and have all purchase data in one place? I'd like to avoid having our revenue in two separate systems. An alternative question my developer will hate is if we can integrate Shopify payments into our webapp.

Shopify Payments is powered by Stripe but you can not use your Stripe account. All transactions will be shown in your Shopify admin so it would mean you would see transactions into separate admins if you're processing charges through two different checkouts. With that said, it would not be possible to integrate Shopify Payments into your third-party application. 

Could you clarify what "webapp" is and what it does?

If you use Paid Members App, you can keep all your data in your standard Stripe account and also use Stripe Customer Portal so your customers have a UI to manage their subscriptions.

You can just embed a Stripe payment button or use our app for more advanced features like Stripe Customer Portal that require a server. https://stripe.com/partners/paid-members-app

Just embed Stripe payment buttons on your website. You can use our app to create payment buttons or use Stripe payment links and your customers can manage their accounts with Stripe Customer Portal - this is all integrated into our app and works on Shopify and almost every website builder - check out Stripe Partners: Paid Members App

You can use Stripe Payment Links on a Shopify site to process directly with Stripe or, custom Stripe Checkout code if you code.  If you want to also use Stripe Customer Portal and have a server listen if you are using SEPA or other delayed payment types that require a webhook, check out https://stripe.com/partners/paid-members-app

If Shopify Payments is available in your country (It is available in the United States) then it would not be possible to use Stripe as your payment processor. You can set up Shopify Payments in Settings/Payment Provider and by following our guide here.

Stripe will not be available to countries that have the ability to use Shopify Payments. That said, if a store owner chooses not to use Shopify Payments then they would be charged a transaction fee on every order when using a third-party payment provider, which would include Stripe.

olá, eu queria saber se posso utilizar o one page check-out da stripe dentro do shopify. Porque o checkout da shopify, utiliza muitas trocas de paginas para fazer a finalização de venda e isso atrapalha e muito para fazer com que o cliente compre.

Is this information still valid for 2024? My parents are from Canada (where Shopify Payments are accepted), you said that in countries where Shopify payments are accepted, it will not be possible to use the STRIPE gateway. However, this link "https://www.shopify.com/payment-gateways" says that Stripe is available in Canada!

Can you help me with this?

Hey, @JacksonMarques. I’d love to help answer your question regarding Stripe!

 

Shopify Payments is our main offering in Canada and is the default payment gateway in supported countries due to its competitive fees and tailored features. Typically, you can't use Stripe in place of Shopify Payments, but we understand there may be situations where the alternative payment gateway better suits your needs. If this is the case, you may let our support team know which specific features you require from Stripe, and request a review of your online store. Please note that while we cannot guarantee Stripe will be enabled, we’re eager to understand how it could benefit your business and help determine if it’s the best fit for your store.

 

If you'd like us to review your business suitability for Stripe, please visit our Help Center and chat with our AI assistant, who will connect you with a support advisor for further assistance.

You can use Stripe on your store by temporally changing your country on Shopify to a country where only Stripe is available but Shopify Shopify Payments is not currently available. If you do so, you will see the option of linking your Stripe account. 

However if Stripe or Shopify payments is not currently available in your country you can Incorporate your Company in the UK so as to have access to Stripe. One Company that can help you Incorporate in the UK is Incorpuk (https://incorpuk.com) helps foreign founders get started in the UK.
