If we just started a shop and we are selling online, shopify is holding funds and requests to see a business license. do we need one to have a shopify store or is there a alternative? i heard proof of deposits to your bank account would be enough is that correct?


any help would be greatly appreciated.


thank you

Hi, Arthur.


Dallas here form the Social Care Team at Shopify.


As much as I would love to help you with this it really would be best to talk with the member of the Risk team who has been in contact with you. It is just that each situation can vary so it would be better if they old you directly what they need.


Have you been in contact with someone about this via email?
