I just regained access to my shopify account and need to update my banking information for payouts because my old bank account was closed.  I do not have access to that old number in order to change the new account information.  Please help.

Hi, @TiffanyL!

I'm Miles from the Social Care team at Shopify. To change your payout bank account, you will need the details of your old account. I recommend contacting your bank, as they'll be able to provide you with the details of the closed account so you can enter the information. Once you've got the old bank details, you'll be able to follow these steps to update your bank account:

  1. From your Shopify admin, go to Settings > Payments.
  2. In the Shopify Payments section, click Manage.
  3. Under Payout bank account in the Payout details section, click Change bank account.
  4. Enter your old bank account information and your new bank account information, then click Save.

You can also find more information on updating your banking details here:

If you're not able to obtain the account details from your bank, then our payments team will need to manually remove the details for you. This requires further authentication so can only be done via our live support team here: Your Support Advisor will raise a ticket on your behalf and you'll receive an email within 3-5 business days to confirm the bank account has been removed and you can add in your new details.

Now that you have regained access to your account, are you ready to relaunch your website, or will you be making changes? I recommend checking out Shopify Compass. Shopify Compass provides you with webinars and courses on things like store design, marketing and more. It's 100% free for everyone and new content is being added all the time.
