A: Unless you are selling highly regulated products such as chemicals or pharmaceuticals I don’t see that you would need any special license. What you need is a strong contract drafted by an experienced attorney to ensure your commission, along with a business strategy to prevent the wholesalers and retailers from cutting you out of the deal after you introduce them.
