Development discussions around Shopify APIs
Brazil Customs requires any incoming parcels to be clearly marked with the recipient’s name, address, and tax ID number from 1 Jan 2020
tax ID number: For individuals, that’s called the CPF (short for Cadastro de Pessoas Fisicas) and for businesses it’s the CNPJ (Cadastro Nacional da Pessoa Jurídica)
Does Shopify plan to add Tax ID (CPF for Brazil) to the checkout form or any workaround?
There's a team looking into a solution. There's no ETA. In the mean time, consider using an app like https://apps.shopify.com/required, adding a field to the cart page or checkout (Plus only).

A solution to this needs to be provided quickly. Shopify should ensure that all mandatory requirements are able to be captured in checkout without merchants needing to use hacks to get around the requirement.
Supply stores such as Aliexporess or similar have the system settings based on country selection. Shopify needs to get this out ASAP.
Shopify needed to act asap...
They don't understand it is a legal requirement.
They also don't understand it is self-destructive as it's a barrier to merchant signup in Brazil.
Imagine if the ZIP field was missing for US stores and they classified having a zip code as a custom tweak which they won't support except for Plus stores!
True, this is a huge hassle since it's mandatory and regulated by law here in Brazil.
So they added the field, but there's no way of making it a required field. That's really dumb since it's required by law for online sales. Shopify needs to start listening more to Brazilian store owners...
Can you give me more details of which situation you're seeing it as not required?
You can enable it by going to /admin/settings/checkout and enabling this
Hello @plentz How do I get this field ?
I don't see any way in the debut theme to get this field in the Checkout section. I would like this field to show up only for customers coming from Brazil as it is not a required field for other countries.
Yes, you can now enable it in any store by going to /admin/settings/checkout and enabling this configuration.
@plentz Where is this field in the Orders/Customers API?
using version 2020-07 and I don't have anything.
@plentz does Italy will be supported?
Also Italians need this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_fiscal_code
Have some way to get this filed in order json, like the company or shipping_additional_street_number field?
I need something like... tax_credential_br
So I can add to Bling ERP.. as when we are importing orders to bling the CPF didnt import correctly, so in Bling settings we have custom fields option that allow us to indicate some field.. but I tried many options but looks that CPF field is not in the json order.
@ToledoX82 this field is only available in the GraphQL API https://shopify.dev/tutorials/get-a-country-field-using-localization-extensions
Yes the Bling ERP has already implemented the field in the integration of their app, we used the Company field for this integration before.
@ToledoX82 using the company name for that is not recommended, especially because it doesn't offer validation. To use the native solution, you should use the API that I linked above
@plentz why do you think people are using the company field?
You've only offered a solution months after it became a legal requirement and hidden the data in GraphQL. We need it in Shopify API and all of us are using workarounds until Shopify kindly allows us to comply with the law.
I want to ship to Brazil customers from a german store. I use the Debut theme.
I don't see any way to add the CPF field to my customers from Brazil. /admin/settings/checkout just doesn't show this option.
Please help, we can't sell to Brazil right now!
I do not see this in our account.
Can we have Turkey and Chile added to the international consideration. Turkey requests an ID number and Chile requests an RUT number.
Still no implementation for those MANDATORY fields. Today, I have contacted online support again and they asked me to pay for an APP or hire a developer to help add those through the API. It's not reasonable to ask for that when those fields should be present at checkout. Those infos are not optional, they are MANDATORY as per local regulation.
List of mandatory info requested:
Korea ID number,
Chile RUT number,
Turkey ID number,
Taiwan ID number.
Interesting how hiring developers can help to add such a field? Or Shopify API allows adding new fields on the checkout page?
