Within your settings, you can configure which payment method logos you would like your shoppers to see before they checkout. Enable test mode if you want to test the checkout flow before going live.

Make sure that the selected payment methods are already approved and configured by Airwallex. Your shoppers will only see the payment methods you have successfully configured with Airwallex.

Multi-currency payments

Airwallex supports payments in multiple currencies. However, if a shopper checks out with a currency that is different from your Shopify store currency set by the store admin, Airwallex payments will not appear as a payment method for checkout. For example, if you have set your Shopify store currency as USD and are also selling in the HK market, then for shoppers checking out using HKD, only Shopify payments will appear as a payment method. This is due to constraints from Shopify.

In summary, if you sell on multiple stores with each store set to a different store currency, as long as the shopper checks out with the currency that is the same as the Shopify store currency for each store, then Airwallex payments option will be displayed at checkout. If you sell in multiple currencies, we recommend you enable Airwallex payments to capture payments in your Shopify store currency and also enable other payment methods to capture payments in other supported currencies.
