My husband and I have a joint bank account however it is under his name. I want to create a Shopify store under my name. 

Am I able to connect our bank account to Shopify or will it not work because it’s under his name and the store is under mine?

Hi, @katedanielladay!

I'm Ava from Shopify, I'd like to help you out here.

Using a bank account under your husband's name is ok here: as long as the bank account meets the physical requirements for your region it should be ok to have one name on the Shopify account and another name of the bank account. Just as a note, it is possible that if your bank expects the payee name to match the account, we might need to make some adjustments to how the payout presents to the bank. But this is something we can help with! If this is an issue, you can just contact our support team here directly so our Financial Services team can fix this up for you. 

How are you finding the set-up so far, is there anything I can help you with? I'd love to hear more about your business.

Speak soon!
