Hey, @faheem10294

We are working on launching Shopify Payments to more countries; however, this does take time as there are several country-specific regulations and laws that we have to abide by before Shopify Payments can be launched in a new region. We can allow the use of Shopify Payments while operating out of a country that does not support Shopify Payments; however, we have very strict and specific requirements that must be met to review the request. To use Shopify Payments while operating outside of a supported country you will need all of the following:

 

  • Government issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc. - non-US ID may be accepted)
  • A Tax ID in the United States:
    1. EIN if you are an LLC/Corp
    2. SSN you are a Sole Proprietor
  • Business registration document (Registered in the US with the government)
  • Proof that the business is actually operating from the US. This can include tracking showing you are shipping from the US or proof of a physical US address (not a forwarding address).
  • A USD checking account, opened with a real US banking institution, located on US soil. Virtual banks and currency services will not work for this, it has to be a real US bank

 

If you do not have all of the required documents, then it will require using one of the available payment processors available for Pakistan. You can view a full list of available payment processors for Pakistan here

I'm sorry to hear that your request wasn't approved. I'm afraid we're unable to guarantee that an individual will be able to use Shopify Payments, even if they are able to provide all the requested documents. Even though you'll be unable to use Shopify Payments, you will still have access to using one of the available third-party payment providers for your region. You can view a full list of available providers by selecting your country here.

I am in this exact same situation.  I am being asked to upload the id docs now.  I can provide everything except the proof of address as I don't live in USA.  My business is registered and operating with business banking in USA.  Please help me get connected to the right person in the verification department.

Proof of address will be required and can not be bypassed. Your best bet here would be to leave it blank (if possible) and provide a detailed explanation as to why you do not have it. If the other information provided is enough then our Banking partners will remove the hold; however, if not, then it will require that you provide proof of address to continue using Shopify Payments.
