How can I change my business registration status on my account?

How can I change my business registration status on my account?

1 0 0

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great day. 🙂

I am having a little trouble, because when I set up my account, I accidentally checked the box "this is a registered business" at the start of my account setup. Now when I have to set up Shopify payments, I realized my mistake as now I need a BRN and HKID and stuff like that (I'm in Hong Kong) to prove that I have a registered business, but I don't. Im afraid I might get sued or in some big financial trouble. Is there any way to uncheck the box that it is a registered business other than starting a new store? 

I don't have a registered business and I am a dropshipper.

You all are the best 😄 Please help 🙂

Feel free to reply and ask for some more info! I feel like I'm missing some stuff.

Hi there, @JayRich!


Thanks for outlining your query for us here in the Shopify Community.


If you're referring to the questions asked during your initial account creation, this info is gathered by Shopify to better understand the types of merchants that are joining us and does not affect your account.


The requirements you're seeing for documentation for a payments account are not related to this choice as they are collected from all Shopify merchants wishing to use Shopify Payments Hong Kong.


There's more info on how Shopify Payments works there on our help site.


You mentioned you're dropshipping products, do you have a specific niche or can you tell me more about what you're selling?
