Got in a fight with my parent because of it, didn't followed my psychiatrist's treatment and my anxiety came back & OCD / borderline syndrome got worse.

Hey @s1mer, hope things sort out well for yourself. I went through a similar journey like you, seeing a lot of very bad websites and thinking well, it should be fairly easy to beat these idiots lol.

Thanks a lot for this thread, that checklist on the first page is really good.

@mhtro
Oh yeah right, I'm also about to add that to my website, beside dropshipping from aliexpress. Can I PM you later to talk about it ?

@Cryogenesis First of shout out and respect to the great post he wrote, could have made new thread and would have gotten alot more praise. Lots of helpful info in it. And yes that person is doing good with fb ads (one in video).

Also would like to ask is it possible that I donot put my card details, or paypal details and still be accepting both paypal and credit cards etc on my website. As I dont have paypal, I have heard stirpe is good payment gate way, need your 2cents on it.

@OP Sorry to hear about your store going down cause of health issues. But from image it was looking really good. Wish you speedy recovery. And I will follow your next journey too. Just don't let this setback take over you, be more in the natural weather, spend more time with friends. Be in good company. And don't try to fight this condition, get a pet, it will help anxiety. Thanks.

You want to have a PayPal gateway without actually having a gateway?

I made a store, but have not attached any card or paypal. Question is can my customers use visa checkout, master card checkout, or paypal checkout. And was thinking does oberlo do orders to aliexpress itlself.

You have to have a payment gateway for your customers to be able to use it. Meaning, that you have to have paypal at least for them to be able to pay with paypal or credit card and the money will be stored in your paypal account. That being said, you have to have a verified paypal accound ( with attached card to it ). You can use other payment gateway like 2checkout or stripe or smth else depending on your country of residence.

Oberlo is more like a tool to help you source items from AE easier, but it has nothing to do with payment options.

The payment method for your Shopify subscription is different from the payment gateway that your customers are gonna see while checking out. If you made a developmental store, you wouldn't have to enter your card details because it's an unlimited trial period but you can still publish the store and have a payment gateway on it.
