We're operating a B2B marketplace.
However at the moment, it operates a little more like drop shipping.
Orders come in, we place the order with the distributor, the distributor sends the end user the goods.
I think in this case, because the payment doesn't go "directly" from end user payment to distributors bank account, that we're technically going to need a resale license to avoid taxes?
This is of course better directed towards a lawyer, but in the mean time, just curious if anyone else has been in a similar situation and what you've found.
Lastly, and my main question here, if we do in fact need a resale license in every state in the US– what is the easiest way to obtain that? Are there any one-stop-shop services that help you obtain them for multiple states?
