RE: Required licenses to operate out of California

I am just wanting to know if someone can provide me with information on what are all the licenses I need to operate an online store out of the state of California. If we want to take credit card payments will my partner and I be required to have an LLC or anything? What kind of personal information on us will the vendors who we can get credit card processing services from require us to provide?

It would be best to contact a local tax consultant as they'll be able to advise you on what you need in order to operate an online business in California. You can also review your state government's website to learn more about what is required to start an online business.
