Yes, individuals from countries other than the United States can absolutely sell items on Shopify. Shopify is a global e-commerce platform that allows merchants from various countries to set up online stores and sell products worldwide.


If you're planning to sell products through dropshipping on Shopify in countries other than your own, there shouldn't be any inherent problem with that. However, it's essential to research and understand the regulations and requirements for selling in the specific countries you're targeting. This includes legal considerations, such as import/export laws, product regulations, and tax requirements.


Regarding using Shopify Pay as a payment tool on your site, you can set it up regardless of your location. Shopify Pay is available to eligible merchants in many countries, allowing customers to save their payment information securely for faster checkout.


When it comes to tax issues, especially when selling in the US, it's crucial to comply with tax laws and regulations. This might involve registering for sales tax if required, collecting and remitting taxes on sales, and ensuring accurate record-keeping for tax purposes. Shopify offers various resources and integrations to help merchants manage taxes efficiently, but it's advisable to consult with a tax professional or accountant familiar with international e-commerce to ensure compliance with all relevant tax laws.

Hey, @leo1231 


With Shopify, you can sell globally if you like. So long as your products are prohibited in certain countries, you shouldn't have an issue selling a product across multiple countries. Check out our FAQ page to learn more about how Shopify works and getting started with a trial.
