Hi there, I am new here and having problems set up my payment method. Currently I live in China and my questions are listed below:

1. If I want to do dropshipping from China to USA or other places, do I need to have a company registered?

2. I saw that I can't use the shopify payment, so was wondering I need to set up a gateway from one of the suppliers? How much do they usually charge?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there @Jeffrey3010!


Don here from Shopify. :)


We do not require you to have a company or business registration to use Shopify, though your local authorities might have requirements that you would need to meet in this regard.


For taking payments in your store, you would need to partner with one of the available payment gateway providers in China.


You can reach out to whichever gateway company you decide to work with so you can set up an account with them and integrate their gateway with your store.


Have you thought about how you will be marketing your store yet? :)
