I'm thinking of opening an online store later in the new year and was wondering if you guys know anything about the wholesalers and distributors ? I'm not trying to advertise here as i don't have a shop yet lol but looking for general info and maybe even some ideas that people want to see in store .

you need a tax license and set up a business license in your state first or most wholesalers don't want to be bothered
most of the companies also require at least 500$ per month in orders

I'll be applying for a tax id , resale certificate , and corporation form within two weeks. What im really interested in is the pros and cons to opening a strictly anime store and what wholsesalers are trust worthy and which are not . I found a few distributors but im convinced there have to be more than the 3 or 4 that i found . $500.00 a month in minimum stock purchases isn't too bad so i find that appealing . Any other info i need to know ( have most of legal info i need ) .
