I put a junk TIN number

As I started I did not have a TIN (Tax identification number) because I used to rely on my parents, so I decided to generate a random TIN on a website and submit it.


1) It REALLY looks like I am not able to change the TIN any more.


2) What's the matter anyway? Why do Shopify needs TIN?


Best regards.

Hey, @deng!


Thanks for your question; I’m glad you reached out about this.


A tax number is required when setting up your Shopify Payments account for reasons such as eligibility, verification, and underwriting purposes. Therefore, it is imperative that it be correct. The full details are outlined in our Terms of Service here.  


To change your Tax Identification Number, we require federal government documentation to support the change. These documents are then submitted to our Shopify Payments team for processing.


I am happy to help you get your information updated. Alternatively, you can reach out to our live 24/7 support if you would prefer to speak with a Guru directly. 


Let me know how you would like to proceed,

Helen | Social Care @ Shopify
