Almost all of the sites I visit are asking me to register before I buy. Is there a way around this being that I am only a consumer and do not have a business?

Hi Joe,

No way around it at all for wholesale, you'll need to establish an account because they will not deal with a non-business entity at all. With dropshippers, it's getting more and more common for them to also require an account now, but there are some dropship suppliers that don't, so I would suggest sticking to dropship and stay clear of wholesale.

Dropship suppliers, I personally think, require accounts now because of the many hands involve in shipping items. Accounts make it a lot easier to trace with solid trace.
