Hi @Asjad 

Thank you for reaching out about this. I know that being able to use Shopify Payments as your integrated payment gateway would be very beneficial for you. I'm happy to share with you what is required in order to have your business reviewed for that opportunity.

In order for us to mitigate the risk of fraud we have very strict rules in place on who can use Shopify Payments and who is eligible for a review to use Shopify Payments. For an international business owner like yourself, who is running their business from outside of their own country, will be asked to provide at the minimum:

 

  • Government issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc. - non-US ID may be accepted)
  • A Tax ID in the United States:
    1. EIN if the merchant is LLC/Corp
    2. SSN if merchant is Sole Proprietor
  • Business registration document (Registered in the US with the government)
  • Proof that the business is actually operating from the US. This can include tracking showing they are shipping from the US or proof of a physical US address (not a forwarding address)
  • A USD checking account, opened with a real US banking institution, located on US soil. Virtual banks and currency services will not work for this, it has to be a real US bank

Depending on the information provided and the nature of the business our business operations team may ask for additional documentation. There is no way around this, this information is mandatory for all businesses using Shopify Payments. 

Let me know if you have any additional questions.
