If you’ve thought about selling on your own e-commerce website, you might have come across Canadian e-commerce website builder, Shopify.
One of the biggest questions Malaysians ask before they sign up for Shopify is: Can I accept payments in Malaysia using Shopify?
The short answer is yes. According to Shopify’s website, these gateways are currently supported:
Popular gateways such as 2Checkout, iPay88 and MOLPay are accepted. The only downside with these gateways is that you often need to pay a high setup and annual fee.
New payment gateways like SenangPay, Billplz and JomPay, which offer much lower setup and annual fees, are currently not inside Shopify’s payment options.
One thing you should also know about accepting payments on Shopify is that you need to pay an additional 2% to Shopify on top of any transaction fees your payment gateway charges you.
This means, for example, if the sale amount is RM100, and your payment gateway charges you 2.8% and Shopify charges you 2%, your total fees will be: RM2.8 + RM2 = RM4.8.
