there may have been this topic in the past, but i didn't find any recent updated one, I am still in confusion over whether a Trade license is required for setting a Shopify store to run a Dropshipping Business.
Anyone in UAE involved in Dropshipping, have you got a License or applied for it?
And is it possible i start DROPSHIPPING business & after earning certain amount of money, later i apply for license or is it mandatory to get a license first ?
Any help or information regarding this topic would be really appreciated.
Nick here from Shopify again. I was talking with you in the thread here. I would definitely recommend you researching this within your local government to find out if you need a license to sell online in your country before anything. What I will also do is move this thread to Shopify discussion instead of Build a Business and hopefully, someone from the UAE will see it and be able to give you a more concrete answer of the laws within UAE for this.
Any other questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team directly or let me know here. ?
All the best, Nick
No problem at all Arshad, my pleasure. Wishing you the best with everything going forward.
To sell your products online in UAE you need to have an E-Commerce License. In case you are also planning to sell these products in your store then you need to have a trading license. But for purely online selling an E-Commerce License Would suffice.
