Hi everyone,

I am new to drop shipping. In the past I would list items from Amazon to eBay and make small profits drop shipping those. As I look through all these distributors I notice things like a Reseller application and federal tax ID, it's just really confusing because I am not used to this so I'm really not sure what to do. Also they ask for company name or private websites when I'm just a seller on eBay, what to I do? Also I'm from Canada so it seems to complicate matters. Any advice is more than welcome thank you.

Hi Daniel and welcome to the forum

Don't worry, dropshipping is the same as you were doing before, When suppliers ask for tax ids and so on, they are wholesalers. So unless you are buying in bulk, then things like that won't effect you at all. Just use the menu options in our directory to filter out all other suppliers such as wholesalers, just search for dropshippers and you won't find those types of supplier requirements.

Btw, being in Canada doesn't present any problems with dropshipping either, so all good :)
