Hello. I have opened my online store with Shopify here in California. I am on the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration website and am being asked for Merchant Card Processor Name and Merchant Card Processor Account. Can anyone help please as to what I should put in these sections. Thank you.

Hi there, @ABASILIO!


I can definitely help you out with your question. 


The information that you input for this form will depend on what payment processor you are using for your store. If you are using Shopify Payments you will want to put "Shopify Payments" as the Merchant Card Processor Name. The Merchant Card Processor Account Number will be unique to your Shopify account, and since I'm unable to provide account-specific information in the Community Forum, you would need to contact our live Support team directly. You can get in touch via the Help Center, and when you connect with a Support Advisor, you will ask for your Shop ID/Merchant Card Processor Account. 


If you are using a third-party payment processor, you would need to contact them directly to get the necessary information. 


By the way, I'm excited to hear you've opened an online store! It's such an exciting time, and I have a couple of resources I wanted to share that were helpful for me when I first started on Shopify. My two favorite places to find information are the Shopify Blog and the Learn with Shopify YouTube Channel. They have great information on how to use Shopify and how to grow your business. Here are a few of my favorite blogs and videos:



I hope this is helpful, and please let me know if there's anything else you'd like to know!
