Payouts in USD (Australian Store)

Hi There! Any help would be much appreciated. 

I'm an Australian Resident. I have a US EIN and a registered USA LLC (I am the single member, 100% owner) within the USA, alongside a US bank account. I have a US PO box, my registered agent has an address with my LLC, I have a US phone number created. My products are manufactured by a US printer in Minnesota and shipped within the USA using 3PL warehousing, so I have a strong operational presence.

I do not have a SSN.

In my Shopify store, I am being paid in USD, because most (nearly all) of my customers are from the USA. 

Because I don't have an SNN I'm unable to:

- Be paid out to my USA bank account with shopify payments

- Get paid out in USD to an Australian foreign currency account in shopify payments

I have investigated other payment gateways and can't find any that suit my small business with good reviews - they are made for businesses earning in the millions not small businesses or they can't help me.

Being paid in AUD will be a HUGE problem for any type of US sales receipts. Exchange rates, conversion fees will be a massive hinderance. Figuring out my US tax will be a nightmare if I can't be paid in USD.

I haven't been able to find a solution - my accountants are unsure as well (if you have an accountant that's an expert in this area please let me know)

Any help would be appreciated.

Another question (Shopify support might be best suited to answer if there is an employee roaming around)

If I convert my store to a multi member LLC will I be able to set up Shopify payments connected to a US bank account without an SSN? 
 
Thank you
