I applied to open a shop yesterday and here is the reply I got.
"Unfortunately, we are having trouble verifying your identity, which is an important step to securing your spot on the marketplace.

I am a new digital art seller and just opened my Etsy shop two months ago. Etsy is the only marketplace I am selling my products and the email address I applied with was the only business address I have. I don’t know how to verify my identity. Please give me some advice.
