Welcome to the Shopify Community.


Thanks for sharing your question and letting us know you're interested in dropshipping. Have you had a chance to check out our Ultimate Guide to Dropshipping? We've shared some helpful tips, how to define your target audience, finding your niche and much more.


In regard to your first question, you can use a VPN to log into your store. A VPN can help protect your privacy and security by masking your IP address and encrypting your data. You'll want to ensure you're using your original domain name for login. Additionally, if you're logging in with a different IP address, you may want to consider activating two-step authentication using our Help Center guide to ensure the security of your account.


For your second question, are you able to provide a bit more context? What are the setbacks or issues you're currently experiencing in regard to not being able to register a bank account for a credit card/Mastercard?


To receive your payouts as Cryptocurrency, you'll need to enable a cryptocurrency payment method in your Shopify admin. Before enabling a payment method, you need to verify that cryptocurrencies are acceptable as a form of payment in your region before accepting them. You can use our Online Payment Gateway resource to find cryptocurrency payment methods in your region and use our Cryptocurrency Help Center resource to set up the payment gateway.


I hope this helps!
