Hello!
I joined Salehoo because I am interested in dropshipping, and wanted to learn more as to how I can benefit from it.

The more I read, the more I realize that dropshipping is hopeless here in Norway, because of the strict import rules (and the fact that there are few people living here). Ebay seems less and less attractive, because it is overflowing with sellers.

Therefore I am concidering starting up an online store. Guessing that I have to register a business for that. The question that rises then is.. If I want to dropship within - lets say the US, where do I register my business? Here in Norway? or do I have to register in the US?

I probably have a thousand more questions, but i will start with that one ;)

Hi and welcome lalune :)

I recently read an article that dropshipping is not very ideal in Europe especially in countries part of the EU due to the high VAT rates for imports.

To address your question, I don't think you will need to register your business in the US as you are not a resident of the US although you are selling to US based buyers and sourcing from US suppliers. You may however have to register you business in Norway but you cannot charge any (VAT) taxes on your products.

Hope this helps. :)
