Documentation is required to verify that you are an authorized dealer

3 0 1


I have been asked to show documentation that shows I have permission to sell the products I sell from the manufacturer. But my store only sells used items bought from private sellers around the country, so it's a mistake that I have to show dokunmentaion, so can you please remove this?
otherwise my shop will close in 2 days it says.

Hi there, @Emil707i!


While we're not able to give legal advice from here in Shopify at all, you would need to ensure you are permitted to sell the items you are selling in your store. 


If you're unsure of your responsibilities in this regard, we would have to direct you to consult a qualified expert in your jurisdiction.


We've got some info here on our help site about Copyright and Intellectual Property you can check out. 


You should be able to submit any documentation you might have using the banner option in your admin there. 


Let me know if there's anything we can help out with from here at any point, please!
