Hi @saeg,

 

Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with this request, to ensure it gets resolved. To confirm I'm fully understanding, are you looking for a way to accept credit cards within your shop?

 

If so, Shopify has integrated with over 100 different third-party payment providers to allow you to continue accepting credit cards online. Due to this, I encourage you to check out this complete list of all available payment providers within Nigeria

 

For more information on payment providers, you can check our Third-Party Payment Providers documentation as it touches on this further.  

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.

 That's not the problem, my store is still on the trial version and apparently I need to choose a plan and pay before visitors can visit my site and shop. Credit cards are not offered in my country so as PayPal as well, I only have a debit card and it was rejected. I believe there should be multiple payment methods so new users like me from Nigeria can conveniently choose a plan and pay so our shop can be active, my trial ends in 16 hours and i still do not know how to pay because you only accept credit cards and PayPal.

Hi @saeg,

 

Thanks for the prompt response and sharing those additional details. I'd be happy to provide some clarification on billing details, to ensure this gets resolved. 

 

As it currently stands, Shopify bills can be paid using a few different payment options. We have a great Billing FAQ document that touches on this further, that I recommend you check out. 

 

It outlines however, that the following payment options are accepted: 

 

  • a valid credit card from Mastercard, Visa, or American Express
  • a debit card that is co‑branded with Mastercard, Visa, or American Express
  • Shopify Balance in some regions
  • PayPal in some regions

 

While I can completely understand how that may not be ideal, I've gone ahead and shared this feedback with our Developers.

 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
