Hi, I just joined the site. I am looking for some whole-seller in US who doesn't require business licence to purchase. I am looking for mainly electronics right now. I am planning to start with couple grands and go from there. I did found some whole-seller but most of them require business licence. I saw in eBay that you don't need business licence to sell in eBay. So how do I do this or if you have any idea please let me know.
Also if anyone can guide me with some starting products to sell it would be appreciated.

Its always a good thing to get your free registered Sales Tax ID number through the IRS website. I found also that by going to your local Secretary of State website you can find the Sole Proprietor DBA form you need to fill out online for the cheapest amount. Here in Oregon it only cost me a total of $50. Prices may vary but its the cheapest and safest place to obtain one. A DBA (Doing Business As) makes you look more professional and some states require DBA or fictitious business name filings to be made for the protection of consumers conducting business with the entity.

Research is the name of the game. Hot Item Finder software can be bought for a whooping $37. I have it and it helps me find the hot items I need to look for with my wholesale suppliers to resell. Its a must have tool to be successful in marketing research. Don't work harder, work smarter. There are lots of You Tube videos that show you exactly what to do. Hope this helps. -Cheers!

eBay certainly doesn't require that you have any business licence to trade there. Drop Shipper will usually not require a licence, so that can be a supply resource for you, also second hand items of course.

Wholesalers will usually require a tax id, so if you are going to use a wholesale business model, you will need to get that sorted.

Hello and welcome to you both - rolltoheaven amd Daderules :) We're all glad to have you with us!

Research is the name of the game.


Daderules is totally right when he said this in his post! It's hard to just take in someone's suggestion as to what to sell, since market trend and research play a big role in actually landing that sale. What may sell for one seller may not necessarily sell for all the rest.

You can also use our Research Lab to help you find profitable products to sell :)

All the best! Cheers guys...
