    There is no payment processor that supports dropshipping. Every single one of them prohibits it, mostly because they do not know what dropshipping is. They think it is the moronoc practice that many here in this forum do - "dropshipping" from another retailer like Amazon, Walmart or Ebay (sorry folks, that's not dropshipping; it is arbitrage).

    DO NOT TELL THEM you are dropshipping. It's none of their business. I have no advice on what payment processor to use. If PayPal won't even support your country, I imagine it's extremely difficult to get a payment processor.

      thank you dave
      i actually thought to not to tell them but some of payment gateways like 2checkout they ask for real business information and real address which is not available for dropshipping..

      i also heard some horrible stories about people got their accounts frozen for unknown reason...i really dont like to find myself in such risk with frozen account and money....even paypal some times freeze accounts....that's why i need to know more about the matter to play it in safe way....

        People don't get their accounts frozen because a processor discovers they are dropshipping. People get their accounts frozen because they are not taking care of their customers properly, they are getting a lot of chargebacks or they are selling something that is clearly in violation of the processor's TOS (guns, tobacco, etc.).

        A processor should never even notice your business. If they do, it is likely you are doing something very wrong.

        You definitely need to give processors an address and business name. Those can be set up for little money as DBAs and using your home address ("Joe Smith Doing Business As ACME Roadrunner Repellent"). I would think that most would like to see a sales tax certificate (or whatever it is called wherever you are from). How can you expect to do business with a real business like a payment processing company if you don't have the most basic real business information to give to a payment processor?

    I would recommend getting an LLC from HK or USA its cheaper and get the checkout opened. Or maybe if you have any of your good friend who is into the country where specially Paypal is supported you are done atleast for beginning stage. As majority of transactions from Tier 1 Countries comes from Paypal.

      I'm not sure what a "tier 1" country is, but I can tell you that with our many websites, PayPal only is used 10% of the time versus our regular credit card processor. Of course, we are in the USA. PayPal has the huge share of the market that they do because of all the countries that have no choice other than PayPal.

    Paypal has a great processor it is called paypal payments pro with gateway. you can access it through your paypal dashboard. It is like any other processor and people do not know it is paypal. You can even accept american express and discover without having separate accounts. I used it for 7 years when I had a ecommerce site

    Although if for whatever reason you can not use paypal then you might want to look into ccbill

    Same for me man, I am from turkey and PayPal is not working here (our idiot government banned them because of tax regulations).
    So I set up LLC in the US and applied for 2checkout account with my business all settled with EIN number etc. after 3 days they replied as below without saying nothing.

    "We appreciate your interest in 2Checkout. However, after further review we are unable to support your business at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience."

    Now I am thinking what to do, I drop a mail to 2checkout waiting for a reply, if they reply it, I will inform you.

    I applied for Paypal business account as well, but unfortunately I don't have bank account in US (only got payoner, thats why i am tryn to go for 2checkout) so as i read on net paypal not excepting payoneer account. ****emall man....
