As long as you are using the Shopify hosted checkout and selling within the Acceptable Use Policy, however your dropshipping fulfillment works is up to you. You do not have to use Oberlo, there are many print on demand fulfillment apps you could use but it sounds like you already have a plan for fulfillment.


Hope that helps!
