Dropship FAQs2017-11-17T04:51:28+00:00
How much do you charge for shipping?2017-11-13T14:26:50+00:00

Shipping costs will be provided during the checkout process. To determine an estimated cost of shipping, please use the “Shipping Estimator” tool found in the online shopping. You must be signed in to your Albany Distributing account to use this tool.

Do I have to pay sales tax on wholesale products purchased for personal use?2017-11-13T14:26:10+00:00

You may use your Albany Distributing dropship account to purchase wholesale products for personal use. If a valid resale certificate is on file at the time of your order, sales tax will not be collected for your purchase, but you may be required to pay a “use tax” directly to the state where you will take possession of the product. For example, if a New York customer buys a product from a California reseller and is not charged sales tax, the New York customer must pay New York State a use tax on the purchased product pursuant to New York Sales and Use Tax laws found here. Many states impose similar use tax laws. We encourage you to consult your state’s tax department for more information.
