What is a California Wholesale License?

A wholesale license is required in California for any business, individual, or entity selling or leasing tangible goods or personal property in California. This applies to LLCs, corporations, partnerships, nonprofits, sole proprietorships, wholesales, retailers, and anybody selling or leasing tangible goods. CA requires that the permit be displayed prominently at the place of business.

A wholesale license is often also referred to as a resale certificate, a seller’s permit, a resale license, a sales permit, and many other names.

How to Get a Wholesale License

In California, the two common ways to get a wholesale license are to apply directly to the state via mail, or to use a professional service to obtain it for you. Mailing in the state application can take a few months to process, and using a professional service (such as ours) often takes less than a day.
