How to Become an Authorized HP Reseller

Step 1

Incorporate your business. HP accepts only incorporated companies into the HP partnership program.

Step 2

Build your company website. HP will not approve your request without a professional company website. Additionally, your email address must be incorporated with your company's domain.

Step 3

Secure a physical address. You must have a valid physical (brick and mortar) location.

Step 4

Register to access the application web page. The HP Partner Portal web page is located in the Resources section.

Step 5

Complete the application.

Step 6

Receive an email confirmation. After completion of the application, you should receive an email confirming receipt of your application. However, it may take up to 24 hours to receive the confirmation email. In about four business days, you will receive another email that will either confirm acceptance of your bid to be an authorized HP reseller or request additional information.
