I interested in laptops, blue-ray player and phones but I don't have any experience about dropshipping business model. What kind of requirements do I need for transaction?

Before you can access a supplier’s wholesale prices and place an order, you usually need to go through an application process and be approved as one of their resellers. Not all suppliers are this formal, but most have at least a couple of requirements you need to
meet before they will work with you. Some suppliers will ask to see -

A trading name or that you are a registered company.

If you live in the US or Canada, a sales tax ID or reseller permit.

Any form of ID like a business license, and sometimes evidence of where you will sell the items, or proof of your physical store.

These requirements mostly apply to wholesalers but still, some drop shippers may also ask for any one of these. Different drop shippers require different setups so it's best to contact them directly to see what requirements they may have - if this is not already clear on their website, that is.

You can learn more about drop shipping in our education area:

And do download a copy of the Dropship Handbook and the rest of the SaleHoo bonus PDF guides if you haven't already done so. You'll find the download links here:

I see Sat's given you a thorough background on dropshipping :)

If you don't mind, I'd like to ask what influenced your decision in choosing the products you're interested in? Laptops, bluray players and phones fall into one category and are typically one of the most sought after. Yipee - to the high demand! But did you also know that consumer electronics is one of the most saturated categories on eBay (and probably online as well). We don't really encourage beginners to start selling electronics, at least not until they have a decent feedback to support them. Many electronics customers will look and eventually buy from well established sellers.

But to show our support here are a few suppliers that may have what you need to help you get started -

For Laptops (Please note the last 2 suppliers are not dropshippers but might be willing to accommodate your dropshipping needs, so do contact them directly)

Hope this helps :)

How can obtain a business license?


Suppliers who want to see a business license before they will sell to you will generally have large minimum orders and wish to determine that you are serious about purchasing their goods.

Getting a business license is fairly straight forward. You need to contact your local court house or country clerk's office and they will direct you to the person you need to speak with. Some states will charge a fee for a business license application.

The US government’s business website has an immensely useful tool that lets you search for your city and state and find all the licenses you need to start your business -

Thanks for adding your photo to you profile!

Are you located in the US? The process may vary depending on your location.

In case you are in the US, I'd like to add a bit more to what Satya has posted, you might also want to visit the link below for more information and helpful links in securing your resale license or sales tax ID

Hi Jamie, can you just clarify you post. Is it a question in regards to suppliers for the items you have quoted or what exactly?

Cheers
