I am interested in starting a dropshipping store and I was wondering if I could run the store with only a personal paypal account. Please help, thanks.

I'm wondering the same.  Chinabrands only accepts PayPal, Payoneer, and bank transfer.  They're one of the few suppliers I'm trying to dropship from, and so far I haven't gotten everything set in place to accept orders with correct shipping and taxes calculated automatically at checkout.  One post I saw said PayPal only allows orders for dropshipping when $3,000 in sales is met!?  It had to do with an online store built in Zambia though, so I don't know if it's applicable to dropshipping from China to the U.S.  I only have a PayPal personal account, I think, to do dropshipping from Chinabrands.  However, CB is not completely integrated with Shopify, 'out of the box', in terms of inventory updating and shipping calculation.  I'll see a shipping rate for a product in the Chinabrands (CB) app, and then when I try a test order in my store, it picks the wrong rate (one offered by CB but not the default and lowest cost and fastest) or I can't exactly match the shipping cost of the product by adding a rate based on price or weight.  This is a logistics maze and I keep running into a non-exit / non-solution.  It's a wonder that Shopify isn't more merchant-friendly regarding all this shipping and synchronization with Shopify App Store apps.  It's like I should simply start an ebay or amazon store and do dropshipping from those platforms.  It'd be easier and faster, and there's tons of free traffic.
