Shopify is one of the most successful development platforms for eCommerce development companies in Dubai & worldwide. It’s been widely accepted due to several important factors; ease of setup, handy apps, automatic order handling, upsells, cross-sells, etc.
However, it hasn’t been much easy for development companies in Shopify UAE, mainly in specific challenges with payment processors. The challenge was having a payment system in place without paying excessive fees. There are many loops to go through but we have found a few of best ways without overlapping many rules and putting funds on risk:
1. Payfort: A trusted payment gateway solutions provider in UAE, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, and Qatar. It makes online payments safe and secure for buyers and sellers with features like iframe and online refund/void support, create a partial invoice with re-authorization, PCI compliant and much more.
2. Telr: A full-stack, feature-rich payments solution that’s highly customizable, enabling our vendors to accept payments online and through a wide range of payment channels. The features include ease of integration on various eCommerce web platforms including Magento, OpenCart, PrestaShop, Shopify, and WooCommerce.
3. CC Avenue: An eCommerce service provider being authorized as ‘Master Merchant’ to appoint Sub Merchants and accept/validate Internet payments via Credit Card, and Net banking facilities from customers in real-time. Features of CC Avenue include multi-currency payment processing, smart dynamic routing, dynamic notifications, and live gateway monitoring tools.
4. 2Checkout: This payment processor is one of the few offered to UAE residents. It provides hassle-free payment to be stored in your account directly on their site. You can also opt for a bank transfer to your UAE account which can incur large fees for which above mentioned option is the best one.
To conclude we’ve tried to find the best options, however, there are more payment processors coming up locally. The main focus is set on when leading companies like Stripe will allow UAE customers. Till now Shopify’s own payment system is not available while others will require social security numbers or more of paperwork that’s not a part of the country’s scope.
