How to sell in Brazil with a USA based business without a CNPJ?

3 0 0

Hello Shopify community.


I am a Brazilian-American entrepreneur currently living in the USA. I have a registered business in the US that manages a couple of social media accounts/influencer businesses and e-commerce websites. I am in the process of creating a store in Portuguese to sell to the Brazilian market only.  My concern is, there's a requirement in Brazil to list address, phone number and CNPJ of the business in the bottom of the page (footer). But my business is US-based and I don't have a CNPJ. Is this ok? How did you handle this, especially when trying to get vetted by Google?


Thank you,

Hey, @ana222 


As long as you have a bank account you can use to setup a payment gateway to accept orders (which it sounds like you have with a US based account) you can choose which regions around the world you want to ship to, including Brazil! For example, if you use the Shopify Payments gateway you can sell in multiple currencies to sell to your customers native currency, such as the BRL. You can learn more about that here


What do you intend on selling? I'd be happy to offer some advice! If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.

Dirk, I'm also a US-based business trying to establish shipping within Brazil by adding the Correios app to our store. How do I sign up for Correios as an US entity?
