Merry Christmas Salehoo!!!!

Why do some suppliers (such as 888lots) require a Social Security Number to open a new account?

I find it a little unnerving and it makes me reluctant to open with them. Could someone shed some light please?

Thanks.

Daylen.

Happy Holidays, Daylen! 888lots is not a verified supplier on SaleHoo. As for providing your SSN, suppliers normally require this for credit application - serves as a personal guarantee for them, specially when a business is just starting out.

Have you checked out our liquidators yet? Here are a few suggestions carrying electronic items like 888lots:
