Hello,
I live in Canada and I found a drop shipper I would like to use but they are based in the USA and they don't ship all of their products internationally. Is it legal for me to run my website from Canada but only sell in the USA?

Thanks!

By run your website, I assume you mean host it in Canada, but only offer shipping throughout the USA?

The answer is yes, in fact you can host your website in whatever country you like, including the US, and designate where you will ship to. If you are only wanting to ship in the US, I would suggest that having a US domain would save some confusion rather than having a Canadian domain and not shipping to Canada....would be messy!

If it's your own site, you make your own rules : )

I've often wondered if you can also do this with Ebay. Say if you live outside of the US , run a store using US based dropshippers. I can't see why not. I get the feeling though that Ebay is not as popular in the US as it once was.

Yep, as Haydee has provided the link there for confirmation. Now if you choose to list via the international site you will show as an Australian member, but you should be able to set the item location on the listing page to reflect the actual items location, not that of yourself.

So if you were selling on ebay US, and listing on ebay US, you would show as an Australian member, but the item location would show as in the US : )
