Location vs Market vs Billing Location!

Hello everyone, 

 

I am setting up a new store, targeting US and European Market, however I am actually located in Pakistan.

 

So my question is, would I set my billing location to Pakistan with actual address, right?

 

Secondly, what is the locations tab for and what location should be set in the locations tab as default and otherwise? (as my orders will be dropshipped)

Attaching the following screenshot for this point as well.

 

Thirdly the Markets section, this would be set to US and EU, right?

 

Thanks in advance and pardon if the question is too basic or repeated.

Hi, @ammar_555.

 

Thank you for reaching out! 

 

Yes, you would need to enter in your actual address for your billing information. 

 

The locations tab is for you to enter in any physical locations or any apps where you sell products, ships products, or stock inventory. Your default location should be your dropshipping supplier, as that is where your products will be shipped from. 

Correct, your markets section should be set to US and EU. 

I also wanted to mention, that you want to make sure your shipping settings are set up correctly with your dropshipping company so that you charged correctly for all shipping labels.

 Third party fulfilment apps typically provide the addresses of their fulfillment centers, which you can sync into the Locations tab.

 

When it comes to selecting a payment provider for your store while being based in Pakistan, you have a few options. However, it's important to note that not all payment gateways are available in every country. Here are some commonly used payment methods and providers you might consider:

 

  • PayPal: is widely accepted and can be used by customers in the US and EU. However, PayPal has limited functionality in Pakistan, primarily allowing you to send payments but not receive them.
  • 2Checkout (now Verifone): is a popular payment gateway that supports merchants in Pakistan. It allows you to accept payments from customers worldwide.
  • Payoneer is another option that can be used to receive payments from international customers. It is particularly useful for freelancers and e-commerce merchants in Pakistan.

Some local payment gateways like JazzCash or Easypaisa might be integrated with Shopify through third-party apps or custom integrations. These can be useful for local transactions but might not be ideal for international customers.

Thanks @Emily for the the detailed response. 


I just have a follow up, for example if my products are from Dropship.io or Printful, in that case what would be the location set in locations tab?

 

Also if you could advise on this as well, what payment method or provider is recommended for Pakistan? Can I go ahead and select any of the ones available?
