Hi, @testacc12345647.

Thanks for your message, I would be happy to offer you some assistance with this. When a dropshipping store sells a product, it purchases the item from a third-party supplier and has it shipped directly to the customer. So to answer your question, whatever Dropshipping platform you are using should be able to ship the purchased product wherever it needs to go. That said, what Dropshipping platform are you utilizing with your Shopify store, are you using our integration Oberlo? If so, I would recommend checking out our helpful Oberlo guides here, for some more information. If you are using a different platform, I would recommend reaching out to their support to ensure you are able to get up to speed with how their shipping is set up. Feel free to clarify the integration you are using and I would be happy to offer any help I can. 

Alternatively, I may be misunderstanding you, and what you are saying is that you purchased some products yourself utilizing your dropshipping integration and now you are hoping to sell or ship them to a customer? If so, and the products are in your position now, you could create a draft order for the products and email the invoices to your customers where they can complete their purchase. If this is the case and you have any questions about this process, please feel free to let me know.
