I have a Shopify store registered in New Zealand, where I live & run my business from. I have had trouble with the ID verification Shopify requires. A couple of days ago, the system asked for a copy of a Utilities bill to continue receiving Shopify payments. I did just that, the name on the bill is mine & the same as the Shopify store. The address is the same also as I operate out of my home address. I now go into Shopify and it advises me that the bill I submitted is not accepted. As you can see below, the system contradicts itself by asking for Photo ID in the warning section but asking to upload a Utilites bill in the bottom section, which I did.
I have also searched through the Shopify Help and read through all other posts I can find relating to this and can find nothing wrong with the information I initially uploaded. My photo ID was uploaded previously about a year ago when Shopify asked for it in similar terms and I had no trouble with that.
Please help, it shouldn't be this difficult !!!
