I was wondering how I can get a resale certificate as a lot of suppliers require this? If anyone can help it will be really appreciated. Thanks!

If you're in the US, just do a Google search for "resale certificate" and your state's name -- you should be able to find the form online pretty easily.

Bear in mind that a resale certificate, tax ID number, business/occupational licence etc. are all different documents. Some suppliers who ask for one of these will accept another, if you ask them (ie. if they want tax ID# and you have a resale certificate, some will accept that.)

Hi Walks-World,

Welcome to SaleHoo!

I'm not sure where you're from but we do have guides for the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand in our Education section - Link hidden: Login to view

Usually if you are based outside the US, you will be asked by US suppliers for the equivalent - which is VAT registration in the EU or the UK, or your ABN or GST registration in Australia and New Zealand.

All the best :)

Hi Cathy,

Suppliers oftentimes ask for business licenses and resale certificates, in your case that would be your GST number, as a means to validate how serious you are as a reseller.

We as customers always try to screen out bogus suppliers, some suppliers also want to make sure that they are dealing with legitimate resellers.

Hope this helps :)
