Hi @bikson 


Thanks for reaching out here for help - welcome to the Shopify Community.


I understand that you're experiencing difficulties verifying your account information for Shopify Payments. I would be happy to clarify what you can do to resolve this.


We do have some information here on our help center which outlines the various types of documents that are required, and the accepted formats our team can process. I would encourage you to check this out, just to make sure the verification documents you have been submitting so far are in accordance with the requirements.


You mentioned that there's confusion between the store name and legal business name. When you set up Shopify Payments, it would ask you for the specific relevant information regarding your business, and the person who will be the 'representative' for Shopify Payments. This requested information can indeed be different from the store name you chose for your store, however the verification documents requested should be specific to the information you entered.


If you believe there has been a mistake, or the wrong documents are being requested, and you have already gone through the above linked resource then the best thing to do is to contact our team directly. You can use this link here to navigate to the help center, and then interact with the chat assistant in order to contact our team.
