    I think paypal isnt a big problem they only block your funds in the beginning or when you not fullfill your orders correctly and you have to many disputes

    They don't like dropshippers, even if you have a single refund with thousand of orders, they will limit you and block your money for 21 or sometimes 180 days after that you need to send all documents of your business and if you are lucky they will unblock your account. If you are unlucky they will ban you and thats it you can't do anything to them

    Stripe prohibit it, and they like to delay payments without reason.

    I honestly find PayPal the best, no issues to date.

    My biggest issue with drop shipping is customers not reading the shipping timescales.

    What do they exactly ask for? What type of documents? I have a paypal but from my neighboar country, so it would be hard for me to give proof of address and shit... but I have a right to open a paypal in their country, so everything is okay, but they ask too much proof sometimes.

    Yes you should set payment on manualy so you have the possibility to control the customers order before accepting the money...and getting the money

    Shopify has a system that detects fraud orders or better give you a risk warning cause they check that threw several factors example cardholders bank, ip location, shipping destination

    Hmmm interesting seller perspective. It remnds me of my old paypal account using my father credit card. When I use it to purchase online, a lot of buyers refuse to accept it and i was charged an additional $1 for every purchase. Lol that pissed me off so much :mad:.Then i delete my PP account and create a new one. And the problem magically go away (thank god :)) I think the reason why I encounter problem is because I use my real name in the first one rather than my father name or I fill in wrong detail ( I forget what detail I fill in already)

    Usually the common problems of a dropshipper is fraud customers, delayed shipping (unreliable drop ship partners).
