Hi, @RyanDeebo.


Rio here from the Shopify Community Team. I'd be happy to help with your dropshipping-related questions. 


Firstly, if you're starting out with dropshipping I highly recommend our complete dropshipping guide. We cover everything you need to know on sourcing products, setting up your store, and fulfilling orders for your customers! 


In regard to legal requirements, it's always best to reach out to a local professional as the legalities vary from country to country. You may be able to speak to your local bank's business branch to get some information on starting a business.
