Thank you for writing back! Jean here from Stripe Growth team to assist. First of all, I would like to thank you for considering Stripe to be your potential payment processor. Rest assured that I will not leave your queries unattended.
Allow me set proper expectation and be honest as possible. Dropshipping is currently not supported in our user in India. Reason why it is currently supported is because it still categorized as High Risk business, which is part of prohibited business by our financial partners. Why it’s risky: The user has no control over the actual shipping process, or the inventory. This can create chargeback risks, but the user is actually the middleman here. Drop shipping is also often used to cover up fraud, scams, etc. These criteria are created based on decades of risk management data surrounding certain business types. Stripe has to work with credit card networks and banking partners to allow us to process payments and we have to follow the restrictions these partners/networks place on us. If we didn’t follow these regulations, we wouldn’t be able to continue providing our services. It is for this reason that our hands are truly tied.
