How To Choose A Payment Provider || Shopify Help Center 2019


Choosing the right payment provider for your
business can be a little overwhelming when you’re first starting out. This video walks you through what a payment
provider is, the options available to you, and things to consider when choosing a provider. To access the payment providers in your Shopify
admin, click “Settings”. From here, click “Payment providers” to
see the options available to you. What is a payment provider? A payment provider is a system used to process
customer transactions for your eCommerce business. For example, if a customer buys a t-shirt
from your store and uses a credit card at checkout, your payment provider is what captures
the payment. If you’re eligible for Shopify Payments,
you see the Shopify Payment provider already set by default in your admin. This streamlines the process of setting up
a provider because all you have to do is enter your business and bank account details to
start taking payments. Subscribe now for an upcoming video on how
to set up Shopify Payments. Shopify Payments is a payment provider created
and supported by Shopify. Shopify Payments is beneficial for your business
because everything you need is built directly into your Shopify admin. Having everything accessible in one admin
is ideal because it creates an efficient workflow with a company you already know and trust. Shopify Payments is sought after because of
its quick payout periods, competitive credit card fees, and best of all, no transaction
fees. You see your sales and payout details all
within your store’s admin so you can keep track of your money in real-time. To qualify for Shopify payments you must reside
in one of the following countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan,
New Zealand, Singapore, Spain, United Kingdom and the United States with the exception of
the US territories. Keep an eye out for more eligible countries
for Shopify Payments in the near future. Some types of businesses and services are
not permitted to use Shopify Payments. To see whether you can use Shopify Payments,
check the list of prohibited business types for the country where your business operates
in the description below. If you’re not using Shopify Payments and you
want to accept payments, you can choose from over 100 credit card payment providers for
your Shopify store. Check out the link below to see what payment
providers are available in your area. Shopify supports two different types of credit
card payment providers: direct providers and external providers. If you’re using a direct provider, your customers
stay on Shopify throughout the purchase and checkout process. If you’re using an external provider, your
customers are redirected temporarily to a third party checkout outside of your online
store. When choosing a third party provider, there
are a few key factors you want to consider. Do you want to sell locally or worldwide? Which currency do you want to accept? Do you need an internal or external checkout? And do your products meet the terms of service
for the provider? These are important questions to ask yourself
because each payment provider offers different features and fees. If you’re looking to sell worldwide, you
want a provider that accepts multiple currencies to cater to your different markets. You may also want a provider that has multiple
payment methods available. For example, one provider may accept only
certain credit cards while another will accept both debit and credit. Remember, a payment method one country uses
may not be what another uses. Consider who your target market is and what
their financial needs are. Always be sure to read the provider’s terms
of service to see if they accept your business’ products. For example, if you’re dropshipping some
providers put a hold on funds until the products are delivered. Or, if you’re selling something age restricted
a provider may not allow this on their platform. Finally, you want to consider the provider’s
fees to use their service. Compare different credit card rates, transaction,
refund and exchange rates. It’s important to note that Shopify incurs
credit card and transactions fees, so it’s best to look for a provider with a rate that
still allows for a profit margin. Be sure to check out Help.Shopify.com for

  1. I am in China. I chose the annual subscription for my Shopify Store, but now I am stuck because I don't know which payment provider is available. PayPal does not accept individual accounts and requires me to register a business account, which is not an option for me at the moment. I would really appreciate your reply regarding this, because otherwise I have just flushed money down the toilet. Thank you in advance.
