Hi Everyone

I have a quick question as I am form the Vancouver, BC area in Canada.
But I want to drop ship in the US as it is a bigger market

Would I need a BC Busines Licence or a US using a PO Box

Hi Mike and welcome to the forum,,

It really depends on the supplier as to if you require a tax id. If you are dealing with a US supplier, some won't worry about it if you are not US based and if they do still require it, then you can use a Canadian id.

Best to speak with the supplier/s direct to confirm their exact requirements.
