We’ve been doing some research into what sets us apart from your average South African printing company. It turns out, there’s a lot! However, the one thing that really stood out to us is that we are the resellers ‘number one go-to printing company in SA

We obviously only ever want to keep doing what you as our valued client approve of and enjoy. So, we dug a little deeper. It turns out that we are one of the few legit, best-selling companies that don’t require resellers to show us a lot of documentation.

So why do some companies ask resellers for specific documents before they order?

Has a supplier refused to even give you a quote unless you show them your tax ID? Apparently, this is totally normal. It is usually done for the following reasons:

1. As proof of identification.

Suppliers want to make sure you are who you say you are. By providing them with your business information or a photocopy of your credit card, you show them they are dealing with a real person.

2. To make sure that you are a serious business.

Suppliers want to ensure they are dealing with someone serious about their business. They want to know you will really make a purchase and aren’t just getting a quote with no real business plan in mind.

3. It enables them to process orders faster.

Sometimes suppliers may need certain documents to make sure the process moves faster and the goods get to you sooner rather than later. 

What documents do suppliers usually ask for?

Depending on where you and your supplier is located, the documentation they need may vary. We’ve put together this list to give you a better idea of what to expect.

1. Tax ID

2. Company certificate/business registration information

3. Reseller’s permit/license

4. VAT number

5. Credit card photocopy
