Good Morning to all,

I am hoping to get some advice from anyone who is willing to get it. I am looking to get start a new adventure into drop shipping, however I wanted to do my research first and find the right product, supplier, & avenue in which to promote such product that would work best for me.

What I have discovered is that I am running into a few road blocks, in getting some information. I was hoping to slowly get started therefore I wouldn't have a Tax-ID until things really took off, I able to search for suppliers this way but what I am still finding is that in order to request to information from them they are still requesting that I provide a business name, wed address, and how long I have been in business prior to releasing such information. I can understand that they are also trying to protect themselves as business, but I am wondering what am I doing wrong to get started.

If anyone has some tips, suggestions, or other avenues that I can search they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Hi Elizabeth and welcome to the forum,

You'll find different suppliers request different details for various reasons. If you are wanting information from suppliers asking the questions that you've highlighted, they are nothing to be concerned about.

A business name can be as simple as providing them with your eBay account name. Your web address could be your eBay account and it's fine if you're a new seller. Just give them the details they ask for an then leave it up to them.

While wholesalers will require more, that will usually be fine for most drop-shippers.
