Publishing your gateway

At first, you can make your gateway available privately to shops. Once there are at least fifty Shopify stores using your gateway that have processed at least one million USD in total, or equivalent, you can request that Shopify list your gateway publicly for all shops in your supported countries.

Sharing privately

To share your payment gateway integration with your client:

  1. Log in to the Partner Dashboard.

    Gateways option in the Partner Dashboard sidebar

  3. Select your gateway.

  4. Share the install link with Shopify Merchants that you are connected to on your own network:

When your clients click the link, they'll be asked to log into their store. After they log in to their shop, they will be prompted to install your gateway:
