In the process of starting my business, I am making prototypes to photograph and show. As of now I have no tax i.d. and thus am having problems getting price info from wholesalers (my product uses items made [some licensed] by other companies). Operating as a 'sole proprietor' how can I get the items I need wholesale. Or is there a better way to keep things simple? My wife (an accountant) is keeping up with costs so we will know what to charge and wants (as least) to know the wholesale price of the items we will be buying. By the way, Thanks Guys, in advance, for buying my product.
