Hi there,

I am a non-US citizen / resident (I live outside of the US). My eCommerce business targets US citizens using US dropshippers. However, a lot of suppliers require a reseller's permit or a Tax ID. How do I obtain these seeing as I am not from/in the US?

Hi, yes I would like to know also. I have an IRD number, which is our tax code for New-Zealand.

Hi Everyone,

Usually you just need to provide something equivalent in your country, for example your VAT registration in the EU or the UK, or your ABN or GST registration in Australia and New Zealand.

Hope that helps! Please let me know if you need anything else at all.

Thank's Rachel.
One more question if you don't mind. TDW Closeouts. Do you know if they are good to deal with or does anyone know?
Do they trade under multiple name's.

TDW have been around for quite a while, however I've never personally dealt with them so I can't give any personal experience. If it's surplus you are interested in, you may also consider VIA Trading, Topper International and also H&J Liquidators, all of which are fully verified members in our directory and in fact H&J and currently offering SaleHoo members a special deal on purchases over 40 odd dollars, so I would suggest definitely speaking with them

Cheers
