It's definitely alright to sell video game related products on Shopify, but when it comes to trademarked items, you'll typically need to be an authorized reseller. Each brand has different rules and regulations when it comes to becoming an authorized reseller. For example, Nintendo requires resellers to fill out a dealer application in order to sell accessories.
Let me know if there's anything I can clarify, or if you have any further questions!

The idea is really nice because game-related products can be sold very well, many fans of different games would like to have something elated with their favorite game. For example, I play Overwatch and I have a small plastic Tracer on the computer table. And I would like to have a 3d picture of the diamond rank symbol because I am a diamond in overwatch. Of course, that is too hard to get it so I used expertboosting.com to be diamond. These boosters are real professionals!
I think it's just business (like it was said before in movies, nothing personal). You know, I've been using some services for video games (my example is League of Legends) and I can say that it's great that there are services that can save your personal time. My example is lol elo boosting service that I've used when I wanted to save my personal time since these guys can boost profile lvl not expensive and pretty quick. This is my story Mark.
If you go to Comicon San Diego, you can see a lot of User-Generated-Products that are designed and made by gamers on sale, while they are not allowed to sell after the show. Only on the spot.
License fee is a necessity if you want to design and sell game-related products under the name of a business. And the license fee is super high for those well-known games.
You can also spend a lower license fee for those less famous games and make them into final products, while the sales will be limited as the gamer base is smaller.
Hope this answers your question:-)
Hey there. I started a Minecraft server using these guys' services minecraft hosting, ggservers with one childhood friend and we had some luck let's say and it got pretty popular. It's the most fun we were able to have during the quarantine. I'm interested in selling some merch related to this server, but I'm curious what are the best selling products when it comes to this kind of stuff. I was never really into eCommerce, but I think I have a really nice opportunity now that would be a pity to just let it go. So if anyone has any recommendations or tips let me know in PM, I'll take everything into account.
