    Hello everyone,
    This is my second post after introducing myself in introduction section.
    I have read a thread from one of the active members of this website about re-selling products from Aliexpress to Shopify and I liked this so much that i decided to go for it. As you probably know because of Iran sanctions (I am Iranian), it is not possible for Iran citizens to open paypal account, but I was serious about this way of making money, so, I found a person who could open paypal account for me for amount of money and He did so. now it is a personal verified UK paypal account. but i have still problem because it is personal not paypal business and that guy could not help me.
    When i was trying to connect my paypal account to Shopify, paypal proceed me to making my acc. to business plan and i went to the end and it changed to business plan but with limits. Paypal wants me to connect a Bank account to the paypal account.
    Here is my question: can anybody help me through this?
    It is so Important subject for me and can change my life and i will be appreciated if you take it seriously.
    for your information, $1=40000 Rials (Iranian currency), so thats why it can change my life
    Best Regards
    K.Baratian

    You should probably look away from PP and shopify and try to develop your own store using some payment system that will allow you to do business more easily.

    Webmoney for example is Russian....there may be others. Politics suck and I hope you find a solution. My advice is to not use Paypal and shopify or your solution will end up being a network of middlemen that can scam you or fail at some point when you start to grow.

    Bro!
    First of all, welcome to BHW. Sorry that you haven't received any good advice yet.

    Lemme be clear of one thing. I'm not dat experienced with shopify and stuff. But if you are having issues with getting your paypal, then you should start looking for alternatives.

    My suggestions are,
    - Check out Stripe Atlas. They let you open a US Business and give you a US bank account. So you can get your funds there. Just go through their website and you'll understand how it works. But be aware of one thing, I'm not sure if they would consider your case or not. Cuz of US sanctions on your country.

    - Look for some other ways and means of making money.

    - If nothing else works out then you should seriously consider migrating to another country which is safe for you, your family and your future.

    Hope this helps you in some way :)

    Thanks to you guys,
    i have thought about the middlemen and that doesnt needed because there are some people here in Iran which i can transfer money to their paypal acc. and they give me cash. so do you think that if a person verify my paypal with his bank acc. my problem will be solved? and if the answer is yes, how can i find such a person who can help me with this matter?
    thanks.
