Hi.

I am new here, and have a question about dropshipping.

I see that some dropshippers want Resellers' Tax ID. Is that for Resellers' that only live in the USA or even for us that live in other countries? I live in Norway, and im not sure if we even have a Tax ID here.

I am not sure how your government collects taxes but you can call 800 80 000 to get the information you need on that. In addition, I would contact any potential dropshippers and give them the info you get from your tax office and ask them if that is enough for their records. Most will probably accept it because they only need the info on file to prove that they are selling to businesses.

I'm not sure what your tax id is called there, but you will have one for businesses.

The general rule is that a tax id will usually be required by a wholesaler, where as drop shippers usually don't require a tax id at all.

Hi and welcome Marie :)

For Norway, you'll need to present your VAT ID which is the equivalent of the resellers or sales tax ID in the US. You might find this helpful - Link hidden: Login to view

Glad to have you with us Marie! :)

Generally the Sales Tax Id is required by wholesale suppliers based in USA, and this license basically tells the wholesaler supplier that you are a serious business registered to collect and remit sales tax from your buyers to your state. As Marc has mentioned this usually is not required by drop shippers. If you live outside the US you don't need a sales tax ID, but wholesalers may want to see some other proof that your business is legitimate. :)
