Hi @hamzaowl,

Ted here from Shopify, thanks for reaching out to us! 

In order to use Shopify Payments UK, a business needs to have physical operations on UK soil. Would you be able to provide documentation to prove that the company operates in the UK? For example, do you have offices, retail locations, rented or owned warehouse space in the UK? Would you be able to provide proof of this physical presence if the review team requested it? Some other documentation they might ask for would be:

  • A Government issued photo ID (driver's license, passport, etc). 
  • Valid tax registration documents
  • Valid local registration documents (provincial/state-level)
  • Proof of your physical presence in UK as mentioned above. 
  • A standard GBP currency checking account, opened with a real UK banking institution, located on UK soil. Virtual banks, currency services or other speciality accounts will not work for this, it has to be a standard UK bank.

If so please let me know! 

Many thanks,

Hey @Ted 

 

I also have the same question, I'm from India and I have a UK company registered with UK Companies House, but I operate from India. However, I have a Registered Office Address, Service Address & Business Address where all my company parcel/government letter comes in. So will I be able to use Shopify payments?

 

Many Thanks.

David.

Hi @DavidCotton1

The Shopify Payments team will typically look for all the information outlined by @Ted. This list is not exhaustive, so I cannot guarantee that if you had all of the listed documents you would be eligible for Shopify Payments. However, it would certainly be most useful if you had them all to hand for when the team asked for them!
