One of my friends wants to open an international online store – to sell the lingerie products from his small company. He will use a very nice template he found from ThemeForest but he has some questions and I thought I might ask an international community:

He knows what paper/authorizations he needs to sell things in his country, but the question is:
for an international store what rules apply?
What official papers/authorizations you need, for instance, if you are from Europe, but you want to sell & send products in USA?

Is there an international organization/company from where you can get an authorized buyer license, let’s say, or something similar?

Thank you all for your help.

I could be wrong,...but you can sell on etsy no problem,..with the buyer or seller not needing any paperwork just shipping info and collecting tax.

Maybe there are some tax documents?

Hey Greenline, try this online tool http://www.ups.com/ga/CountryRegs

Select the origin and destination country, check the boxes you need…

It may be a good start, also you can ask them (or any other international shipper) they should be expert enough to answer your question ;)
