Hi, @amvgarcia,

Hank here from Shopify.

Can you tell me a bit more about what you are trying to do? 

Is it a case you need to obtain an EIN, or is it relating to something else?

If needing to obtain an EIN, you can reach out to the IRS to obtain one but I also have more information for you here.

Let me know if you need any additional help with this!

Hank

I have my EIn and need this updated on my account and I cannot find where I can change this.  Is this something you can help me with?

Okay, so can you confirm have you a banner within your Shopify admin, or are you needing to update your EIN within your store for tax reasons?

In order to update tax details, we require federal documentation to support the change. This can be in the form of a Signed and dated W9, SS4, or a CP 575 form. The documentation should include your EIN, address, and legal business name.

If this is correct, once I authenticate your store, I can then forward this ticket to my colleagues in escalated support who will add an upload button to your Shopify admin in order to provide this document.

Let me know if this is needed, or if it is relating to something else.

HI there,

 

I am setting up a store as a shopify partner, and my client doesn't have an EIN. She has her resale certificate number which is not accepted in the field, it says invalid. Can I input her social security number? Will that work?

Thanks for reaching out here, @charncharny!

So just to confirm, you are creating a store for a Merchant, and are setting up the payment gateway integration, is it?

The account owner would normally set this up as it contains sensitive information, but depending on what the payment gateways requirements are, would be what information is posted within. Due to this, the SSN may not be correct.

Have you reached out to the payment gateway about this, or can you confirm which payment method you are looking to use?
