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.

To learn more about Malaysia's GST and how you can register please visit this link - Link hidden: Login to view

Hope this helps :)
