Please experts guide me through, I am from Pakistan and want to adopt international drop shipping business
I have few questions hammering on my mind
(1) being from Pakistan can I drop shop worldwide? if so then
(2) in Drop Shipping is it necessary to use actual address (Pakistan) or can I use any address suitable i.e USA etc.
(3) I have a friend of mine USA with a business PayPal, can I still use PayPal as my payment option for customer while holding an address from Pakistan? Or do I need to use a USA address?
Thanks a bundle/
1. Yes, you can start a dropshipping business from anywhere and you can dropship world-wide
2. It really depends on personal preference and what you would like customers to see.
3. You can refer to this link about shopify shipping methods https://help.shopify.com/manual/shipping/understanding-shipping & https://help.shopify.com/manual/payments
I hope that all may helps you. You can refer to Dropshipmate shopify app to import products from 18+ websites like Aliexpress, Amazon, Ebay, Dhgate etc., You can enable Daily Auto Update/Sync to keep updated your products whenever changes occurs on supplier sites.

I would like to give you some suggestion:
1. You can drop shipping worldwide of course. And it is easy to import a lot of product from supplier sites to your shopify shop and start your dropshipping business.
2. According to Shopify Terms of Service> Account Term, it is better that you use your real Pakistan address. This is from Shopify rule: To access and use the Services, you must register for a Shopify account (“Account”) by providing your full legal name, current address, phone number, a valid email address, and any other information indicated as required. Shopify may reject your application for an Account, or cancel an existing Account, for any reason, in our sole discretion.
''You are responsible for your Account and any Materials you upload to the Shopify Service. Remember that with any violation of these terms we will cancel your service. '' You can check Shopify Terms of Service here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/terms?ref=waimaob2c
3. Although it is not mandatory ,but I also not recommend you to do it for following reasons :
1). The shipping address is inconsistent with the store site will lead to a result that the customers feel distrust .
2). Shopify will determine whether your account is safe or not according to the information and address that you provided.Once your IP address is not the same with the registered address, your account will be restricted. So it is better to use a real address in the long term.
3). If Shopify detect that your paypal address is different with current addres, it assumes that your account is not safe. payment may be pending and held and you can not have it.
So hope all these suggestion can give you clues how to registered and start your business with Shopify.
