Shopify stores operate with a default currency set by the merchant. All payments processed through the store will use this currency. When it comes to integrating with TFTW.me's payment apps, merchants need to be aware of specific currency restrictions based on this default currency.

1. TWINT:

  • Currency Requirement: CHF must be the default currency.

  • Implications: If your Shopify store's default currency isn't CHF, TWINT won't be available as a payment option.

2. PowerPay:

  • Currency Requirement: The store must have its default currency set to either EUR or CHF.

  • Implications: Depending on your store's default currency, you can use PowerPay for transactions either in EUR or CHF, but not both.

3. PostFinance:

  • Currency Requirement: CHF must be the default currency.

  • Implications: If your Shopify store's default currency isn't CHF, PostFinance won't be available as a payment option.

4. Datatrans Credit Cards:

  • Currency Requirement: The store's default currency must be USD, EUR, or CHF.

  • Implications: Depending on your store's default currency, you can use Datatrans Credit Cards for transactions either in USD,EUR or CHF, but not all of them together.

In Summary: Your Shopify store's default currency determines the available payment apps. It's crucial to set the correct default currency that aligns with your chosen payment method to ensure seamless transactions for your customers.
