Hi, thank you for submitting your question to Answers.Google, I hope I
can provide the information you are seeking.

I'm sorry to see that no one else tackled your simple question before.

You don't need anything additional other than to establish your
identity with wholesale vendors.

You won't have any credit rating (probably) but you can get a free

Initially many companies will be happy to take a credit card to pay
for initial orders but be aware that you will have problems buying
small quantities or returning items because you get them wholesale.

You should also set up an account, if only because various
companies will sell wholesale lots to any member.

Please be careful and do a credit check on suppliers before placing
any large orders. You can do that at

Thank you again for turning to Answers.Google for help. I believe this
answers your question.

Good luck with your fundraising.
