I want to describe my unpleasant situation. A few months ago I decided to open my own dropshipping business of selling pet products (toys and accessories). I’ve invested a lot of time and effort, created the brand, hired a developer to customize the store theme, selected products for my niche, designed marketing strategy, etc. At the moment I live in Russia (also I could register the store in Ukraine) and the only one option to accept credit cards is 2checkout (as in Ukraine too).
So when my website had been completed, I sent the request for connection to their system, I gave them my passport photo and utility bills to confirm address, but the request was refused with the next explanation:
"after further review we must decline your application. 2Checkout routinely requests 3rd party background information on our applicants. The information we received prevents us from approving your account."
I don't understand the reason and what I did wrong. Now I'm trying to get more info from them, but they don't answer. And they gave me their referral link for a another service (Allied Wallet) that doesn't have integration with shopify (I don't see it in my shopify admin) and I'm not sure it works in my country.
Has anyone been in a similar situation? Perhaps there are some alternatives to Russia or Ukraine?
I have a strong desire to start my own business and don't want to give up and abandon the idea, because I've spent so much time and effort. Maybe someone has found a solution for such trouble.
Thanks for reading
