How to change the country which my shopify store is based on

Hi. I'm Arjuna from Sri Lanka.

My shopify store is based on Sri Lanka and therefore the payment options for my store, are quite limited.

Therefore if I setup a LLC and register my business in United States, and obtain a tax ID, and a US bank account, how can I now change the country of my shopify store to base on United States, so I can use the Shopify Payments for my store??

Hey Arjuna, 

I'm Ann, from the team here at Shopify 🙂

You can change your store's location under Settings>General. You would have to physically be located in the United States in order to use the Shopify Payments gateway, however, other payment gateways might not have such strict rules. You can check out all the payment gateways for the United States here. Definitely reach out to them to see what requirements they have and go from there! 

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions or concerns feel free to reach out to us on this thread 🙂 

Have a great one,

Hi Arjuna, 


I am having the same issue at the minute. Did you find a workaround? I am trying to change my store location from my UK address to my Srilankan address.
