  • What does your 2_deploy_contracts.js looks like? – Ismael Feb 3 at 6:45
  • var EcommerceStore = artifacts.require("./EcommerceStore.sol"); module.exports = function(deployer) { deployer.deploy(EcommerceStore, web3.eth.accounts[9]); } – Josue Guessennd Feb 3 at 8:04
  • You can edit your own question to add more details. By default truffle-hdwallet-provider only provides 1 address. Are you using Truffle v5? – Ismael Feb 3 at 8:20
  • no i'm using truffle version 4.1.14 – Josue Guessennd Feb 3 at 10:49
  • Can you check the value of web3.eth.accounts[9]? – Ismael Feb 4 at 5:42
