@Tulight... I had similar experience. If you allow, maybe my own experience can help youwith these issues.

I was blocked by Shopify - or better to say - by national regulations. Shopify as a Canadian company does it smart to adapt the shop system to your national regulations. E.g. my company with a settlement in the Netherlands was required to be registered; the Dutch law does not allow a side-hustle business just as a "private person". And Shopify knows these laws. - So I had to register first a company at the Chamber of Commerce, got my formal registration ... which on its own then requires a "visitor address". This then made it urgent to rent a "virtual office" (who wants, that potential customers who complain about deliveries, appear at your private home, right?) ... the shopify system demanded from me with a place holder in the payment segment, to add this ID number (in Dutch its called KVK number). And it also asked for the TAX number.

Good luck !!!
