Do you need a business license to dropship on Shopify?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:41 am

Dropshipping is a great way to start your own business, but you’ll need to be aware of the legalities involved. If you’re dropshipping on Shopify, you’ll need to register your business with Shopify and comply with their terms and conditions. You’ll also need to get a business license if you’re doing business in a specific state or country. If you’re dropshipping without a business license, you may be breaking the law.

PRO TIP: Dropshipping on Shopify does not require a business license, but there are other legal requirements that you need to be aware of. For example, you will need to have a sales tax permit if you plan on dropshipping products to customers in the US.

However, there are some cases where you may be able to get away with dropshipping without a business license. Talk to an attorney if you’re unsure about the legality of your particular setup.
