Drop-shipping with stripe ? This post is outdated

I am fairly new to Shopify and I'm at the point of going live with my first store. I have chosen Stripe and PayPal as my payment methods due to the various advice coming from online resources. Now that I have set up both my payment accounts with these providers I have received further information saying that Stripe does not allow dropshipping? Does anyone on here still use Stripe? I would like to make my set up as seamless as possible and I don't want any problems down the line if I can help it...

Hey, Aj, Zachary here, a Shopify Guru!

I think the main issue here isn't that Stripe doesn't allow drop shipping, but it's more so along the lines as some drop shipping providers do have long shipping times and therefore there is an increased risk of chargebacks if your store does not have a Shipping FAQ that is properly laid out detailing the shipping process. This is something that I think you should reach out to Stripe's support team about directly. All payment gateways have their own regulations, so it is always best to check with them on their policy regarding drop shipping businesses. Also, it will depend on where you are located too.

But some gateways you might want to check out, that have been working well for some other merchant's who are dropshipping would be authorize.net and 2checkout. It can certainly depend on the types of products you are selling and where - so again, best to check with the gateway themselves!
But our other payment gateways are listed here if you would like to check them out - https://www.shopify.ca/payment-gateways.

Happy Selling!

Ok, Zachary. 

I will continue with using Stripe as my gateway and update of FAQ page to ensure my customers are well informed of the shipping times. Thanks
