Hello @Aasmiii!


It is indeed possible for you to run a dropshipping store in India and sell in the US.


If you are based in India, it is important that you set your store country as India. 
This is because payment providers will ask you for documents proving either a physical or business presence in the country that the store is based in. 


Doing this will not prevent you from selling in the US, as you will still be able to set your store currency as USD.


Here, I have a list of payment providers availabe in India for you to choose from.


Once you have chosen a payment provider, you will need to go to their website to set up your account, then follow these steps here to integrate your gateway with Shopify. 


This payment gateway will be the way in which payments are processed on your store, and you will be able to manage your payouts there also.


If you're ready to get started, I have some great resources to help you get on track to starting your Dropshipping business, and below I will share some of my personal favourites:


- Shopify Learn Dropshipping Course

- Shopify Blog article on the Best Dropshipping Suppliers 2023

- Shopify Help Centre guides on Dropshipping


Have a look through all of those depending on what you would like to do!


I have also included our Shopify Blog guide here on How to Start an Online Store - this is a great step by step guide that you can take your time with while you're learning.


What kind of products are you looking to sell? I would be happy to see if I can offer any other advice here.
