Before choosing a payment gateway provider, you must first understand if you are located in a Stripe supported country — and what other options you have.
International payments company Stripe is known for its ability to accept payments worldwide. Despite their global reach, there are many countries, and even entire regions, where merchants are unable to use this payment gateway. Unsure if Stripe is available for businesses located in your country? Then read on to learn where this payment gateway operates, what countries are supported by Stripe, and what other payment solutions exist for international businesses.
Is Stripe Supported in your Country?
Stripe primarily supports merchants located in countries in Europe and North America, while also offering very select coverage in Asia and Oceania. However, Stripe is not available in many European countries and the vast majority of Middle Eastern and Asian nations. Additionally, Stripe does not support merchants domiciled in Africa or Latin America.
While Stripe is technically available in India, it has been in ‘preview’ mode since 2017 and has more limited functionality compared to what’s available in other Stripe supported countries. Merchants and businesses in countries that are excluded or have limited functionality should consider other options for payment providers.

What to do if your Country isn’t Supported by your Preferred Payment Gateway?
Stripe has regional supported country coverage, however, what sets the best providers apart are the range and breadth of countries and international payment methods they can support.
