Shopify Payments - USA Address Verification Without Utility Bill

1 0 0



So I recently got a message indicating I must provide the risk department with some documents. I went ahead and did so, but it looks like one of the documents was rejected (Proof of Address). I provided them with a bank statement that had my name/address.






They have indicated that a bank address will not suffice here.  I live with my parents at the moment, and therefore none of our utilities are actually under my name. How am I supposed to provide proof of address? I have a drivers license with my name/address, but no utility bills.


Please advise!
