    I want to open a Shopify dropshipping store within the weed niche but I'm running into issues even before I'm starting.

    I live in The Netherlands, so I cannot accept Shopify Payments, due to unknown reasons am I unable to use PayPal with my private details. Long story short: I had 2 credit cards connected to the PP account, one was a debit credit card, the other was a credit card that got blocked by the bank due to debts (that are paid off already for a long time). I was unable to use that blocked card of course. But in one way or the other PP found my credit card(s) so 'dangerous' (while I never had an issue with them and always paid) and they completely banned me from their platform. Both my business PP (with another bank account) and my personal one got perm banned.

    - I do have a Stripe account, but I've read that the TOS of Stripe does not allow drop shipping.
    - Also read about 2CheckOut, but it seems getting accepted with them is also very difficult, especially for the niche I want to open my store in.
    - I've thought about a stealth PP + documents but those costs are mostly well above $100+ to get..

    - Currently, I don't know what to do and how to proceed, can someone help me out as to how I can best proceed?
    - What is the best way for me to receive payments?
    - Maybe lose Shopify as a whole and just build my own website without them?

    Thanks in advance!

    You can use Stripe and say you have a fulfillment center in the country you are mainly selling to.

    As long as you don't receive complaints from your clients, you won't have a problem.

    Have a good Customer Service :)
