Everyone who starts their own business wants to be successful right away. Luckily, from Pinterest to Etsy, there are plenty of opportunities for people to sell their quirky crafts for profits. In fact, small artisans have been known to be some of the best entrepreneurs, building their businesses from scratch. With a talent for crafts and a California seller’s permit in hand, you could be well on your way to following in some of these businesses’ footprints.
Anyone who plans on selling goods to customers must have a permit or license to do so. A California seller is required to have a seller’s permit, and this is true in most other states, as well. The reason for having a seller’s permit, also called a wholesale/retail license or a sales & use permit, is so sellers can collect sales tax directly for items sold in a self-run business.
