Hi @canselbalpetek 


Welcome to the Shopify Community! Thanks for reaching out here for help.


I understand that you are wondering if Shopify Payments US can be used for a dropshipping business - I would be happy to lend some advice!


In general, as long as your business is in line with the Shopify Payments Terms of Service (ToS) and the Shopify Acceptable Use Policy (AUP), dropshipping as a business model is not prohibited and is actually used by a wide variety of merchants. Feel free to check out the prohibited businesses information here, to make sure that the types of products you are dropshipping would be allowed on the platform.


It's also important to be aware of the requirements for using Shopify Payments which are outlined on this page here. The specific requirements for Shopify Payments verification will vary depending on your location and business circumstances - as you mentioned US, you would be required to prove your business is actually operating in the US and submit various pieces of documentation. Once you enable Shopify Payments on your store and start the verification process, you will be able to see exactly what is required.


Are you new to Shopify, and just getting started? If you are dropshipping then I would highly recommend checking out our ultimate guide here, as it contains some great information!
