Here are opinions and answers from FAQ Farmers: * If I remember correctly, I read somewhere that you need a resale license or certificate and a TIN. * A lot of manufacturers and distributors will sell to the public. Others will only sell to someone with a resale cert. However, I've never heard of just an average person being able to buy straight from the 'big guys' like Sony or Nokia. You most likely would, at the very least, need not only a resale license and tax ID, but more significant proof that you own the kind of business that would deal in brand name electronics or what have you. You'd need to do some serious research if you just own a small shop. And I feel safe saying that individuals cannot deal with the big guys thereby saving money by cutting out the middle man. The savings comes from buying in bulk, which distributors (aka 'middle men') can afford to do. If it were possible or easy, why wouldn't everyone be doing it? * The purpose of the resale license is to prevent the general public from being able to buy directly from the importers, manufacturers, distributors etc. As well as to collect the resale taxes generated by the sale of items. To remove the retailers would cause a total loss of the retail market as we know it. The manufacturers and importers and distributors need the retail market to get the "product" to the general public. The retailers or small businesses are spread out like a network and provide the store fronts that the manufacturers and importers don't have. and are store fronts and work to help sell the items made and imported by many different manufacturers and importers. They are a place where consumers can find the things pertaining to their specific needs within the public safety category without searching for the manufacturer of each individual item. Imagine how long it would take to do that! Convenience for the consumer, Convenience for the importer/manufacturer and the collection of the taxes. The whole free market system is a complex series integrated steps to convenience and competition to level prices and generate sales.
