Millions are made every day by small businesses selling products for manufacturers through GSA schedule; generally referred to as resellers.

GSA schedule sales opportunities are available from the federal government (for almost all types of products) and state and local government (for some products).  Your product will be posted on GSA Advantage, the federal equivalent of Amazon.com. Federal buyers can find you on GSA Adavantage and order from you using email.

Almost anything can be resold through a GSA schedule; computer hardware, tools, general hardware, industrial product. And most manufactures will drop ship the products to your customer.

The GSA requirements to obtain a GSA schedule are:

  1. Two years in business.
  2. An agreement for the manufacturer to supply the product.
  3. A government marketing and sales program; usually through email.

Reselling is the easiest way for small businesses to do business with the Federal government. Itís relatively painless and does not require a major investment.
