Shopify is asking me to upload a government-issued photo ID.

I'm seeing this alert in the Shopify admin that's asking me for a Photo ID:

We were unable to verify your Shopify Payments account information. Please upload a Photo ID to continue receiving payouts.

I can't find any help topics about this. Which photo ID do they want? A driver's license? Who's photo ID should it be? The business owner? The person who set up the Shopify account?

Also, why is it asking for this information? We've been using Shopify for many months.

Hi,

I have also tried to upload both my drivers license and several different scans of my passport, but Shopify can't verify it! I keep getting an email about I have to verify my personal ID. Did you solve this yet?
