What is a resale certificate and how can I submit it?
A resale certificate (also known as a sales tax exemption certificate) is a proof that you can buy an item tax-free and that it is intended for reselling. If you already have a resale certificate, it can be submitted to us by uploading it from your Printify account.
If you have a sales tax permit, it is possible to generate and subsequently submit a resale certificate for select states using our Exemption Certificate Wizard.
Once the resale certificate is submitted and approved, sales tax exemption will apply to all of your stores that are connected to your Printify account.
How to submit your existing resale certificate to Printify
