Who is required to obtain a Vendor’s License?

There are four different vendor licenses: retail, service, delivery and transient. A retail vendor license is required for selling merchandise at a fixed location of business. A service vendor license is for a business providing services such as data processing, employment placement, etc. A delivery vendor license is for someone selling and delivering goods without a fixed location. A transient vendor license is for sale of goods at various shows and markets throughout the State of Ohio. These licenses are used for the collection of state sales tax.
