Topics: Acquiring a Wholesale License

I don't have a question about jewelry-making but I was wondering if you could tell me how to go about getting a wholesale license? I have no idea how to go about this and I have had no luck searching the internet.

To get a resale or tax ID, you need to go through your state agency. Visit your state's website and see if they offer this service electronically. This type of information is usually found through the state's business department. If you don't find anything, there will most likely be a place where you can call to request the proper paperwork be mailed to you.

Once you have your resale or tax ID number, you can use that as a place to start with the vendors you do business with. Each business operates on their own to establish whether or not they do a wholesale business. If they do offer wholesale pricing, they will most likely have terms as far as how large an order must be, how much you need to spend in a year, etc.
