Hi @Peter I need to have my EIN added as well so that when I receive my 1099-k it shows the EIN instead of my SSN, please let me know how we can proceed and have this corrected, thank you so much!

To all requesting an EIN update:

It is not possible to remove your SSN from your account; however, your EIN can be added to the account for tax purposes. I have sent each of you an email to verify the store. You will need to respond directly to my email and not this forum reply in order to continue with the request.

As the email was sent a month ago it would be considered closed. I have sent you a new email.

Hello Peter!

 

I hope you are having a good day! I also have encountered this problem, in which I would like to swap or maybe add to my SSN my EIN, so I could run this Shopify site under the business. Is there anyway I can do this?  

Thank you!
