Hi there @Sky19!

 

In order to confirm any requirements or processes for third-party services like payment providers, you would be best served by contacting those companies directly.

 

If you're happy to let me know in which country your Shopify store is based, I can share a list of all payment gateway providers available there so you can check this out a bit further.

 

Payment processors will generally need to verify your identity in some way, and would often require a bank account or tax ID, but the individual company you choose to work with will be able to confirm in their case.

 

Can you let me know anything else about your business and what you're selling here?

 

Would you be setting up a store for the first time or working your way towards launching one?

Thanks for getting back to me here and for confirming where your store is based!

 

You can check out the full list of payment gateway providers available for use with your Shopify store in Haiti here.

 

As with any external, third-party service not provided by Shopify, you would need to confirm with the company in question what their exact processes and requirements are.

 

That said, most payment processors would have some obligations in terms of confirming your identity, so check in with any of the options you're considering to see what they need from you!

 

Can you tell me more about your line of business and where you're at with your journey?

 

Are you still setting up your store and working your way towards launch, or have you started selling already somewhere?
