Personal information to the pay out account but since I am a minor and had sent a minor id shopify.

1 0 0

Hello I am a minor working to launch my first dropshipping store on shopify. I had recently found out that I must be 18 to use shopify unless I ask and add parental consent. I have asked my mother explaining this and she had agreed to help me with this. I have tried to put down my personal information to the pay out account but since I am a minor and had sent a minor id shopify will not let me change the information to my mothers own. Is there anyway I could fix this or would I have to restart completely with a brand new store?
