Learn more about managing your payments while running your Shopify store in India.

 

This thread is part of the Regional Support threads offered for merchants based in India. To see which other topics are available, you can visit the India hub here.

 

There are a number of different payment gateways available to merchants in India, which will allow you to accept payments from your customers through your Shopify store. This includes the likes of PayU, Razorpay and paytm, among many others.

 

To use these gateways to collect payments on Shopify, you will first need to create a merchant account with the payment processor of your choosing. After this is done, you will be provided with your account credentials by the processor which can then be used to activate the gateway within Shopify. This is done in the Payment providers section of your Shopify admin settings.

 

Shopify also allows you to connect your PayPal business account via PayPal Express Checkout. You can enable this alongside your primary gateway which processes credit card payments, meaning that your customers will have the option of paying by card or with their PayPal account. It is also possible to enable different alternative and manual payment methods on your store, such as bank deposit and cash on delivery (COD).

 

Shopify also offers an Advanced Cash on Delivery app, which is exclusively available to merchants in India. The app allows for greater control when it comes to making COD an available payment method to customers, as you can use the app to restrict this payment option based on the customer’s location and the value of their order.

 

Please note that all payments processed via a third-party gateway are subject to transaction fees, and the rate of these fees depends on which Shopify subscription you have chosen. You can find the rate charged per transaction for each plan over on our pricing page.

 

Update 10/26/20; Several updates have been made to Advanced Cash on Delivery thanks to your valuable feedback! If someone selects Cash on Delivery (COD), only COD is shown instead of other payment options, and if someone selects prepaid shipping the online payment options will be shown instead. We have streamlined the process to keep the customer focused on one goal - completing the purchase. Thanks again for your feedback!

Thanks so much for those details, @rajat1234 

This is likely due to PayPal requiring further regularity steps to be completed on an Indian PayPal account before it can be connected with services such as Shopify.

To resolve the issue, please reach out to PayPal to check if any further setup is required on their side!

Hope this helps!

Hey @rajat1234 ,

As a fellow Shopify user from India, I suggest you to use Alternative payment methods as Paypal is not a major mode of payment here.

Thanks,

Deva.

Hi,

 

I have been using the Advanced Cash On Delivery app for India since 2016 and had to deactivate it temporarily since March 2020. Tried activating it in the month of May and started getting the below errors:

 

1) Cash on delivery has not been activated.

2) When trying to make a cod payment at the payments page we get an error message but that's a Heroku Application error message. 

 

I have been desperately chasing Shopify support to help me with this issue as it's causing us huge losses but no one has even bothered to look into it properly. Can someone help me here?

Hi @GUPTA,

Shopify does allow merchants in most countries to pay for their subscription via PayPal, and you can add your PayPal account as a payment method in Settings > Billing. Do you see this option if you head to this area of your admin? It should look like this:

Hi @MelRoy,

I'm sorry to hear that you've had this issue with the app, and that you've not been able to get the support required to find a resolution. Have you spoken to any members of our support team over phone, live chat, or email? If so, what did they say when asked about issues with the app?

Kind regards,

Hi Victor,

Here's what I have been hearing from Jaimie from the support team for the
last 3 months - At this time, this issue remains open and unresolved with
the development team. We do not currently have a timeframe that we can
provide on when this will be resolved.

He has been literally copy-pasting the same response. What more do I say.

Hi @MelRoy,

Okay, I see. Thank you for sharing this with me. It sounds from Jaimie's email that the issue you've experienced is a known one that is currently being looked into, but currently has no ETA in terms of a resolution. I understand that this is frustrating, but this can happen with some aspects of the Shopify platform (including its apps) and may take some time to resolve. You can always contact our support team again via our Help Center and ask them if there are any further updates to your ticket they can provide.

Kind regards,

Hi @rankish3,

Thank you for sharing that screenshot—can you confirm if you are using the Advanced Cash on Delivery app, or do you just have cash on delivery enabled as a manual payment method on your store?

Kind regards,

8 months to solve such a simple issue is some time? Are you even serious?
Do you guys realize the number of losses you guys have individually put my
business through? Sadly enough, you guys haven't even bothered to offer any
alternatives. I inquired about setting up a new Shopify store but the team
couldn't even guide me through the process. How do we export our customer
data and other stuff? Such a disappointing experience after being a Shopify
merchant for over 5 years.

Hi, @Lan123 

I'm able to see PayTM and PayU on my side for shops in India so we may need to take a closer look at your account. 

For good measure, can you please send me a screenshot of what appears when you go to Settings > Payments > Alternative Payments and search "Pay"? 

Thanks!

hi Elle, thanks for getting back to me, very much appreciated! Here's the screenshot. I'm not seeing the payment method, is it because the business location is in HK? Despite the business location itself, we are serving customers worldwide with digital services. Please help, this is critical to us.

Hi, @Lan123 

Yes, the payment options you see are the payment gateways available to you in your region. 

Payment providers available in India may not be supported in HK. 

As long as you have a credit card gateway enabled on your store, customers from all over the world will be able to check out on your site. If you would like to offer additional payment methods for customers without credit cards such as manual payment methods, you can do so; however, you will not be able to integrate with providers not supported in your businesses' region. 

I hope this helps clear things up!

Hi ,

Can someone help me with setting up subscription app for my store?

Every app i try says that I need to enable shopify payments as my payment gateway, but when I checked, shopify payments is not available in India. Does that mean that I can't use subscriptions or is there any other way to implement this? I use Payu Payment gateway.

Thank you

Yes, we do intend to integrate credit card, however as you might know, people in many developing countries don't really use credit cards. India is one of the example, and that's why we are looking to add local payments... Despite we are based in HK, we are providing digital services which customers from all over the world can use it despite the location. Why I'm not able to see those payment methods though? Are there any other way of doing it?
