Hello,

 

I need to change the bank details of my payout bank account, but I don't have my old account number and sort code. The old account was web based and has been deleted due to lack of use while I was building my Shopify store. I have no way of finding out the old details that are normally required to update the account number and sort.

 

Could a Shopify rep please assist?

Hi @adamct

Thanks for your post! I can certainly help you out. Can you double check the following to see if you can access the information you need?  

 

  • Look for a Void Cheque: A blank cheque issued from your bank which shows the banking details of the account in question
  • Access Online Banking: Check to see if you still have access to the bank account login. You could log in to online banking (if available) and should be able to locate the banking details there.
  • Contacting a bank representative: You could also contact your bank directly to request the old banking details.
  • Search for a paper statement from bank: See if you have an old paper statement in your files from your bank to find these details (if available)

If you're unable to retrieve these details, please check your email as I have sent you a message with the next steps to take.

Hi @RandyB

 

Thanks for getting in touch. Can you confirm you were unable to find the old number by any of the following measures: 

  • Look for a Void Cheque: A blank cheque issued from your bank which shows the banking details of the account in question
  • Access Online Banking: Check to see if you still have access to the bank account login. You could log in to online banking (if available) and should be able to locate the banking details there.
  • Contacting a bank representative: You could also contact your bank directly to request the old banking details.
  • Search for a paper statement from bank: See if you have an old paper statement in your files from your bank to find these details (if available)

If you're unable to retrieve these details, that's okay. I have reached out via email to provide you the next steps!

Hi @Ren 

I also don't have access to the old routing and account number. I've called paypal several times to get this information, but it's lost now. If I could get that email as well that would be great. 

Thank you so much

Hi @Day 

To clarify, are you trying to change your Shopify Payments bank account details or your PayPal email/account? If it's the Shopify Payment bank details, please be sure you've exhausted the following first: 

  • Look for a Void Cheque: A blank cheque issued from your bank which shows the banking details of the account in question
  • Access Online Banking: Check to see if you still have access to the bank account login. You could log in to online banking (if available) and should be able to locate the banking details there.
  • Contacting a bank representative: You could also contact your bank directly to request the old banking details.
  • Search for a paper statement from bank: See if you have an old paper statement in your files from your bank to find these details (if available)

If so, we can proceed with a secure email to get you helped out. 

In the event this is regarding PayPal changes, you should be able to do this by going to Settings > Payments and under PayPal Checkout, deactivate your account then log-in to PayPal with the new account. It should redirect you to the PayPal site to proceed with activating it.

Hello, I have the same problem. My old bank information is connected to my Shopify, and I want to change to my new bank. It won't allow me to do that unless I provide the information from my old bank, and I don't have that. I have received one sale, and it was paid to the bank account that I don't have access to. Please help, I need to fix it asap.

Hi @Ren 

 

I'm having the same issue as everyone else is. I find it curious that i'm being asked to update my bank details when I haven't changed them in years. 

 

i can't get access what I entered into on my account to be able to change it but i do have the information required. 

 

Hopefully you can provide me with assistance

Hello @Bonny_Forant & @Meserwaa

Thank you both for getting in touch. As long as you have exhausted the list noted at the beginning of the thread (I will include it below), then we can certainly proceed via email. It's always recommended to make sure you definitely cannot access the old bank number since this would be the fastest way of getting yourself set up with a new account. 

 

  • Look for a Void Cheque: A blank cheque issued from your bank which shows the banking details of the account in question
  • Access Online Banking: Check to see if you still have access to the bank account login. You could log in to online banking (if available) and should be able to locate the banking details there.
  • Contacting a bank representative: You could also contact your bank directly to request the old banking details.
  • Search for a paper statement from bank: See if you have an old paper statement in your files from your bank to find these details (if available)

I have reached out to you both via email to move forward should the above steps not result in finding a valid bank account number to work with.

This is beyond frustrating. You have over $400 in payments from my customer that you claim cannot be transferred and, ONCE AGAIN. I KEEP COMMUNICATING THAT I cannot reset accounts if I can’t replicate the account that you say is incorrect.

You have an uncanny way of not accepting responsibility to solve customers’ problems.

This will surely go into another black hole, as it has since August. No resolution! No Response. I will figure out how to share this with your CEO. Hopefully, someone out there in Shopify Land gives a damn.
