Establishing Credit


Become a Tech Data Reseller

To open an account and/or apply for credit, just complete and return the forms below. Tech Data's New-Account Representatives work quickly to approve your application.

The application process involves completing an online Reseller Credit Application form. Typically, the application will take about 20 minutes to complete. Please take a moment to review the Compliance Letter and Conditions of Sale. These documents contain important information concerning your new account.


Once you have completed and printed out all forms, simply sign the hard copies and fax to our new accounts department at 727-538-7802. IMPORTANT! Please verify that all forms have been filled out completely and signed at the bottom, prior to submitting.

There is a $100 non-refundable application fee that is assessed on all applications. This fee covers the cost associated with the processing and administration of the reseller application. If net sales are $1,500 or more during the first 90 calendar days the account is open, a rebate of $100 will be applied to the account. The rebate will be applied 120 days after the account has been opened and must be used within 12 months from date of issuance.

Important note: Credit cards are the only form of payment accepted, checks will not be accepted. The cardholder must be one of the owners/officers named on the reseller application.

A personal guaranty from one or more reseller owners/officers may potentially help in obtaining additional credit to support business growth. A personal guaranty form can be found at www.techdata.com/personalguaranty.

After the reseller application is processed, you will receive an e-mail containing your account number, sales team phone number, and an expanded list of Tech Data's service offerings. Once you have received your Tech Data account number, be sure to apply for an Electronic Commerce ID since some areas of our site cannot be accessed without it. This will provide you full access to our online product catalog and the convenience of placing orders online.
