Hi Guys,

I'm a complete novice, looking to get started with dropshipping. I'm based in the UK and seeking to deal/sell in the US market.
My questions are:
1)Do I need a Tax ID from the outset, and what are the tax implications?
2)Im concerned how long a payment from a buyer will be available for me to use and pay the dropshipper considering the reasonably short turn around expected by the customer.

Will appreciate any help
Thanks

Hi Edward and welcome to the forum,

Regarding tax id, this will depend on the supplier. It's far more common for a wholesaler to require a tax id than a dropshipper, however more and more dropshippers are now requesting a tax id as well. If you do find that one does require it, using a UK tax should be fine.

Regarding payment, if you are going to accept PayPal, and most customers will expect you to, then you will most likely have some issues if your account is new. PayPal may well put a hold on your account, usually lasts up to 28 days, and all the funds will be locked during the hold period. What you can do is contact PayPal ahead of time, give them the details of the suppliers you will be using and that may make it easier to get through the initial new account stage with them.

Cheers

Welcome to the forum,

When you enter the directory and select the product category, you'll see menu filter options open on the LHS of the page (as you face it) There you can modify your search criteria to meet your specific needs. So to select Europe only, you need to set the filter to Europe in the "locations" filter

Cheers

Hi Sal and welcome to the forum,

No integration app at this stage of development, sorry.
