Understanding the payment process is an important step toward getting paid by your customers. When a customer checks out, they can choose to pay for their order using any of the methods that you've enabled in the Payment providers area of Shopify. You can enable a variety of payment methods using Shopify.
There are a few different things to consider when you're choosing which payment methods to offer. If you want to let your customers pay using a credit card, then you can use Shopify Payments or a third-party provider.
There are also several ways for customers to pay online without using a credit card, like PayPal, Amazon Pay, and Apple Pay. You might also want to accept alternative methods of payment like cryptocurrency.
When choosing a payment provider, consider the countries where your business is located and where your customers live. Shopify's list of payment gateways by country can help you find out which payment gateway are available in your country and what currency they support.
From your Payments page, you can:
- Set up Shopify Payments
- Activate a third-party payment provider
- Activate an alternative payment method
- Activate a manual payment method
- Change your payment authorization settings
