Identity verification

So I have a small question. I have started  to prepare store and of course I will receive payments for products I'll  sell. The question is what form of ID shopify accepts? Think is that most of the people  said that's its only passport  or driving license. Problem is I have non of them. I do live in UK  for long time but I'm from EU zone and I don't  need passport. I have only biometric  ID card. So question is. Is it OK to use ID card as verification.  Or I need  passport.  Thank you

Hi, @ademoon,

Hank here from Shopify! 

I spoke with the accounts team, who advised that as long as it is a valid photo ID, this should suffice. But that you may also need to provide proof of a UK address at some point, if this has not been asked for already.

But within the admin when you are uploading the documents, there is a comment box where you can input more information about the documents, etc, which the team will be able to view.

Let me know if you have any further questions for me!

All the best,
