Eunice here from Shopify, thanks for posting, and welcome to the Community.
If you've received an email regarding your Shopify Payments being on hold please respond directly to the email for support. If you haven't, we’ll need to access your account in order to investigate . While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify Community at this time, we’d be happy to continue assisting you through live chat, email, or callback.

Hi there Eunice,
I'm hoping you can assist, my Shopify Payments are also on hold.
I have submitted additional documentation a week ago, and I'm still awaiting a response. I never received an initial email from Shopify to notify me that the account was on hold, so I cannot reply to that email and request further assistance.
The Help Desk function is a ridiculous rabbit hole that only offers forum after forum of generic answers, and no opportunity to contact a human for help. I need an email or phone number.
Please advise how I can contact someone at Shopify to have my case assessed?
Thanks in advance.
Because you haven't received an email about your payouts being on hold, we’ll need to access your account in order to investigate. While we're not able to provide account-specific support in the Community at this time, we'd be more than happy to assist via chat, callback, or email. To select one of these options please follow my instructions below:
1. Log into the Shopify Help Center.
2. Once you're logged in, select Support > Contact Support from the menu.
3. Type contact support in the search bar and then hit search.
4. Continue to get support then select request a callback, chat with us or email us from the options.
For the fastest support, I recommend selecting the chat option. I hope this helps!
