Hi, my question is if I can sell products in Shopify using my ITIN because I don't have SSN.

Hi there, @francoliverott5.

 

Welcome to the Shopify Community and thanks for dropping by!

 

As per our Shopify Payments Terms of Service in all regions, a merchant's details are required for every Shopify Payments account. When onboarding to Shopify Payments, you are required to provide all 9 digits of your ITIN as verification, even if you have an EIN for your business. 

 

I'd also like to share our resource on Information Requirements for Shopify Payments. During the onboarding process, you'll need to provide verification documents such as:

 

  • Documents for identity and home address verification
  • Documents for business verification

 

Once the documents are submitted via the secure upload banner in your Shopify admin, our team will need to process and review the information.

 

It looks like you're just getting started out on the platform! I thought I'd share our How to start an online store resource from our Shopify blog. It includes everything from finding your target audience, building and customizing your store, choosing a business structure and preparing for launch. 

 

Let us know if you have any other questions!

Hello @Victoria ,

Is this official statement from shopify that if we dont have SSN then we shall upload ITIN number to get shopify payment activated. 


I just would want to double check 🙂

Hey @setupedia 

 

US merchants (using US Shopify Payments) are required to provide all 9 digits of their SSN or ITIN as verification, even if they have an EIN for their business.

 

Let me know if I can clarify anything further,
