Does Shopify plan to add Tax ID (CPF for Brazil) to the checkout form?

Highlighted

Brazil Customs requires any incoming parcels to be clearly marked with the recipient’s name, address, and tax ID number  from 1 Jan 2020

tax ID number: For individuals, that’s called the CPF (short for Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas) and for businesses it’s the CNPJ (Cadastro Nacional da Pessoa Jurídica)

 

Does Shopify plan to add Tax ID (CPF for Brazil) to the checkout form or any workaround?

Hey @ShopMaster_ERP,

 

There's a team looking into a solution. There's no ETA. In the mean time, consider using an app like https://apps.shopify.com/required, adding a field to the cart page or checkout (Plus only).

A solution to this needs to be provided quickly. Shopify should ensure that all mandatory requirements are able to be captured in checkout without merchants needing to use hacks to get around the requirement. 

 

Supply stores such as Aliexporess or similar have the system settings based on country selection. Shopify needs to get this out ASAP.

They don't understand it is a legal requirement.

They also don't understand it is self-destructive as it's a barrier to merchant signup in Brazil.  

 

Imagine if the ZIP field was missing for US stores and they classified having a zip code as a custom tweak which they won't support except for Plus stores!

True, this is a huge hassle since it's mandatory and regulated by law here in Brazil.

So they added the field, but there's no way of making it a required field. That's really dumb since it's required by law for online sales. Shopify needs to start listening more to Brazilian store owners...

Hi @TheGraces,

 

Can you give me more details of which situation you're seeing it as not required?

Hello @plentz How do I get this field ?

I don't see any way in the debut theme to get this field in the Checkout section. I would like this field to show up only for customers coming from Brazil as it is not a required field for other countries.
