Can I use a US SSN for Shopify payment from abroad?

Hello Dears, 


I have a question regarding using shopify payment method on my store. I obtained SSN during my stay as international student in US for 5 years.

Can I use my US SSN to activate the shopify payment while I'm living currently out of USA as solo entrepreneur without having LLC. 


Thank you

Hi @Wezio12,


Thank you for reaching out to the Community! I'm happy to provide some assistance with locating a payment provider for the shop, to ensure this gets resolved.


To confirm I'm fully understanding, do you currently have physical operations (i.e an office) in the United States? 


If notI encourage you to check out this complete list of all available third-party payment providers in your region. Shopify has integrated with over 100 different third-party payment providers to allow you to continue accepting credit cards online.


For any questions that you may have regarding a specific payment provider, I encourage you to connect with them directly. They will be able to share more information with you and answer any other questions that you may have. 


For more information on this, you can check our Third-Party Payment Providers documentation as it touches on this further.  


Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
