Company incorporation for online business where?
10 Feb 2017
Iam trying to find out where to incorporate company for my online shop,
I already have company in europe, but i live all around the world on monthly basis.
I dont understand how to choose geographical location of my costumers that I would like to sell to and suppliers. Ideally it would make most sense that if someone from US orders on my site I would have supplier in the US that will ship the item to him. But how do I establish relationship with the supplier if Iam not registered business in the US. If you know how this works I would very much appreciate your help.

I am not sure but I guess you are talking about the dropshipping model. If so, you do not have to live in the US to establish a relationship with US suppliers.

You already have a company in Europe and you can use the same company irrespective of you where you live in the world. Your company is a separate legal entity in Europe and thus your business location is considered to be where you company is based.

@Kadar Khan thank you or your answer. Yes Iam talking about dropshipping model. How can I establish relationship with US drop-shipper than and prove that Iam legitimate business if I dont have US EIN number, I came across that this is required if I want to open wholeseller dropshipping account.

It will be different with each supplier. IMO, most supplier do not require you to be based in the US.

Are you registering with individual suppliers you find yourself or through some service like WWB etc?

You don't have to be a US business to get an EIN.
