Hi Tracecross_30, 

Tristan here, current shop owner. It's great to see your interest in dropshipping. This is a great first step to learning more about dropshipping. Shopify is used as the platform to host your storefront and Dropshipping is used as a method of your supply chain. One benefit shop owners are able to take advantage of are dedicated plugins/integrations - including dropshipping - to help simplify and streamline the process of fulfilling your orders. 

Being that you're just starting with your dropshopping business, you're not really required to acquire a license or register your business. These are certifications and licenses you need to get if you're concered about credibility, expansion of your business, and/or you want to receive the benefits that come with a license or being registered. It's also good to double-check with your local laws to assure you are staying compliant. 

To help you get started, you might be interested in watching Shopify's Dropshipping 101 Shopify Academy course. Are you using Oberlo? 

Below I've gathered some resources to help with your research. 

What sort of dropshipped products do you plan to see? Do you have an idea of who your target audience will be?

Hi @Tracecross_30 

Its good to hear about  interested in starting Shopify dropshipping business. Dropshipping is a popular choice right now. There’s no stock to store, no parcels to dispatch, allowing you to concentrate on marketing your products, making sales and focusing your valuable time and resources on growing your business. You won’t need to invest a large amount of capital upfront. Dropshipping allows you to sell products without having to stock them yourself.
If you don’t have the resources to manage manufacturing, supply and fulfilment, then dropshipping with Shopify is a great option and is one of the simplest and most popular platforms you can use to create and run your store.
