    Sorry, you can't say:"I have been to the shop yesterday." Your sentence with "yesyerday" is right, i.e I went to the shop yesterday. When you say "I have been to the shop" you don't mean the time of the action. It's the present perfect tense which shows that you have done something in the past but you don't state the time of the action.
