Hey, @beadsbee

I'm afriad this request would not be possible as the SSN is required, even if you have an EIN for your business as we are required by law to report all income to the IRS. However; we can help with adding your EIN to your Shopify Payments account. In order to add/update your EIN, we will require a copy of your CP575 confirmation letter, or any official letter from the IRS containing the official IRS logo, your IRS registered business name, EIN and business address. If you do not have the CP575 or an official letter from the IRS, then you can use a W-9 form which you can print off and fill in from the IRS website here. To help with this, I will need to verify your store via email to escalate the request up to our Tax team. If you can reply to the email titled "Shopify Forum Support" with the requested information then I can help get this resolved.

Hi Peter,

I am also having the same issue. Since setting up our webpage we have now acquired an EIN and need to add it to our Shopify payments. Where can I send copies of the documents you mentioned in your post? Thanks.

@Peter 

I'm on the same situation, I started my shopify store without the EIN, so I uses my SSN but after that I've created a company and need to update my SSN with my EIN number, could you help me with that too?

Thanks

Hey Peter,

Like most, I started my store with an SSN in place of my EIN but would like to update it for tax purposes as we are closing out the new year.

Can you help me update that please?

Thanks!
