Do I need ID to buy products at wholesale prices?

February 18th, 2011

i.e. I am looking to buy beauty products at wholesale prices to resell, however, will suppliers need me to prove I am actually a company/reseller or can I just order no questions asked?

yes you need at least a tax id. if you tell me where you live(what state) i can furthermost help you in getting a state tax id.

when i contacted a wholesaler over a month ago they wouldnt even give me a quote on the prices without 1st proving i was a business by giving them my tax id and a business card.

i suggest you going to the library or barnes and noble and read a few books like starting an ebay business and looking around the website i posted above to get ideas on how to start and run your business

GOOD LUCK!!!!

    If you are in the UK, then go to Sally Hair & Beauty. They have branches all over UK. I bought some stuff from then when I was a therapy student.References :

    Depends on the companies policy. They will usually accept a letterhead, which are dead easy to do on your PC.References :
