    I am on my way to open an ecommerce dropship store on Survival kit, Tools, Accessories niche. There are some product that I must add are emergency fire starter, Survival knife.

    Now what happens if a customer buy emergency fire starter from my store and it malfunctions and causes a fire breakout in my customer's house? What happens if a minor buys a knife from my store kill someone with this knife? For all these activities how much will I get affected? how avoid these troubles?

    Now if i have to ask anything about it to my Dropshipper then what to ask? what questions to ask?

    Thank you.

    Impossible to answer. Where do you live, where do you dropship to? Laws arenĀ“t the same in every country.

    Well, they could possibly be able to sue you.

    Not sure what you mean with disaster, but you may be held responsible. Check with a lawyer if you are unsure.
