Hi!

 

I am currently trying to open a dropshipping website. I live in El Salvador and I am having problems understanding the different methods for accepting credit cards payments. I understand the best way would be PayPal but I need to know if there are other ways that don't ask to log in to an external service?

 

Thank you all!

Hey, @FLopezG! Welcome to Shopify Community!

 

Customers can pay using PayPal without having to log in to an account or create one. You'll need to enable this feature in your PayPal account for it to be available to your customers. PayPal has a guide for enabling guest payments on this page.

 

If you wish to look into other payment gateways, you can check out this list of gateways available in El Salvador. Payment gateways other than PayPal generally don't require customer accounts, however, I recommend getting in touch with the payment companies to confirm. They can also advise you on how to create an account with them and set up their gateway to your Shopify store.

 

Even though dropshipping is a low-risk business model, it pays to do a lot of research before starting your business so you can set it up for success. Before you start or continue building your website, I suggest reading through the articles linked on this page as they contain a wealth of information that will help you grow your dropshipping business in the long run. The links include articles about the basics of dropshipping, how to find the best products, and how to make the business a success. These will direct a pathway for you and build a business goal that you can work towards.
