What is required to start a TikTok Shop?

To be able to start a TikTok Shop in the USA or UK (and later Europe), the following is required:

  • A registered company in the respective country

  • Personal verification of the managing director/owner of the company with TikTok

  • A shipping warehouse in the relevant country

    Alternatively: Use of TikTok Fulfillment (FBT)

  • A registered and established trademark to be able to place corresponding products

  • A bank account in the relevant country for payouts

  • An active TikTok profile with content in the respective national language

Technically, a TikTok store can be operated without a connection to an e-commerce system, but this is generally not recommended (due to accounting aspects, returns handling, etc.). There are currently the following direct connections to the TikTok Shop:

  • Shopify

  • WooCommerce

  • Salesforce Commerce Cloud

  • BigCommerce

  • Magento

An individual connection to another shop system is also possible if the potential assessment offers good prospects.

In which countries is TikTok Shop available?

  • USA

  • United Kingdom

  • Indonesia

  • Malaysia

  • Thailand

  • Philippines

  • Singapore

  • Vietnam

In Europe, the TikTok Shop will be launched in Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Ireland at a later date.
