Online business in South America


#1

This is a bit of a random topic and I’m not sure if this is the right place for it. We’ll see I guess.

I’m moving to Peru in a few months, My girlfriend (who is Peruvian) wants to start a small business selling digital products over there. I’ve made a small WIX website for her as a mock up to start getting the idea down and thinking about it. When it comes to accepting payments this is where I’m kind of stuck. As we will be selling these products in Peruvian Sol (PEN) it leads to a problem. WIX and other sites like it mainly use stripe as payment processor but all are either US/Europe based and Stripe have told me I wouldn’t be able to accept payments in PEN at this time through the platform. As I know very little about this kid of stuff I thought I’d reach out for any advice.

Would Paypal be an option?
