I am currently trying to get a California sellers permit for my dropshipping bussiness, I am going to be using Aliexpress to purchase most of my products until I know which ones are selling well enough for me to purchase them in bulk. That being said I am having an issue filling out the form for the sellers permit as I do not really have any major suppliers, If anyone has any suggestions on what I should I would be extremely grateful as this has become somewhat frustrating staring at the form and not being able to answer.

Thanks in advance!

Hello Chris, 

Just to make it clear, you need help in getting your California sellers permit? Or you are asking if you need one in the first place?

Ditto. I'm going to call the County tomorrow to see if there is a workaround, but if you find the answer, please post here!

Hi all, 

I got the answer to the reseller permit from the County. You need to get put any supplier in the field for the application. It's to verify that this is a legitimate business but you don't need a committment from them yet. The difficulty is trying to find which supplier to list on the application with contact info. Does anyone have any suggestions on where we can find contact info on Oberlo, AliExpress or other?

Hope that helps!

Okay, so after two seperate calls to the State gov. I got my answer, the first call the gentlemen told me to use any supplier I am buying from Aliexpress, however getting the proper information is difficult so I decided to jump onto Alibaba to find a future supplier of one my products when I decide to purchase in bulk, the problem was I could only get a phone number that had 13 digits, the permit needs 10 and wont accept any more or less, so we called again. We were helped by another person who said we could use literally any company that wer use to buy any material for our bussiness. So this includes Office Depot for paper or ink or anything really. You can literally use any supplier you use for any aspect of your bussiness for the form.

help! I'm stuck on the same thing. I'm solely dropshipping so I'm not buying supplies from office max or anything and I simply cannot find phone numbers for sellers on alliexpress! so frustrating! It only has a chat function. I did find one for alliexpress itself but, like the OP mentioned, it's more than the allotted amount of numbers on the application. Please help! I'm at a loss :( do i just put something like office max anyway just so I can move on with the application?
