Hi,
Am currently reside in Ghana and hope to have a very big e-commerce store here in Ghana. I decided to start this dream by buying some few phones at a very good prices from whole sellers and selling them at Ghana to make some profit but I have not registered my company yet, do I need a Tax ID before I will be able to purchase any items from a supplier?

Hi Anita and welcome to the forum,

All wholesalers and most dropshippers will require a tax id, a local tax id is fine. Liquidators usually do not require, so maybe that is an avenue you could consider as a supply resource if you don't want to register for a tax id.

Cheers

Kindly explain who a liquidator is.

You'll find a few approved traders in our directory, Via is just one of them Link hidden: Login to view

A liquidator sells surplus (liquidated) stock, so that can include items such as shelf pulls from retailers, customer returns, closing down sales and so on. So you're talking about a whole range of items in all sorts of conditions, so you do really need to be aware of what you are buying because if you aren't aware, it's an easy market to get yourself burnt in.

Mobile phones probably aren't all that common in the surplus market, but you never know what you can turn up. Another option might be liquidation.com, it's not a genuine liquidation centre like Via, but you can often buy lots of mobile phones there. It's an auction platform and quite often you are buying cherry picked lots, so again, you need to be careful.

By cheery picked, I mean someone has already purchased a larger lot of items, then taken the best quality for resale, now dumping what they don't want in a bulk lot to recoup some of their initial outlay.
