How can I switch from SSN to EIN for my online business?

1 0 0

Hello, when I started my Shopify I did not have an EIN so I used my ssn but I would like to switch it to do everything under the business. I have tried to change it but I have not found the option in the settings. How do I go about making this change?

Hey @1995Candleco,


Welcome to the Shopify Community!


Your SSN will always remain on the account, even if you have an EIN for your business. You can add your EIN by contacting our support team directly.


While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify Community at this time, we’d be happy to continue assisting you through live chat, email, or callback.
