I need to know if I can enable shopify payments. I registered the LLC and it's signed by the secretary of state. I drop ship from US to outside. I'm not a US citizen but out of the US temporarily. I applied for EIN since I registered My business as a LLC and waiting to receive it from the IRS. I do have a US business address for the LLC and a business bank account. I saw that the SSN is required to set up shopify payments. Can I use EIN instead? since I'm not US citizen. I can also provide my Passport and a valid US drivers license I had last year. So I have the following:
Shopify payments is not available in my country so I need to see if I can apply with all of my documents. Do I need to apply for ITIN to be added instead of SNN or the EIN with all of my documents is enough?
Let me know what to do in detail please
Nick here from Shopify.
There are a number of requirements you need to be eligible for Shopify Payments (SP's). Being in a country where SP's is eligible is the primary requirement, but there are some others once you have that. If you are looking to register for the USA but are not a USA citizen or residing in the USA, you still may be eligible (but not guaranteed). You would need the following details:
Something else to note is that a bank statement would not be a valid proof of address.
This is something which the team would need to review (with all of the above information), so I will need to email you directly about this if you want to continue the process. Let me know and I can email you to get the process started.
All the best, Nick
