How do I get an Ohio Supplier ID?

You may not have a Supplier ID, since that is needed for instances where the State of Ohio is paying a vendor.  That’s how the state processes reimbursements for the program, so that is why they want you to have a Supplier ID. 

To register as a new supplier or update an existing account with the State of Ohio, visit the state of Ohio’s supplier portal and follow the prompts until completed.  

To log in to the site, you’ll need your “OH | ID,” which is a universal login for employers to access for tax payments and such.  If you don’t know your OH | ID number, ask your Accountant since they likely use it for your tax payments. 

Once this information has been reviewed, you’ll receive notification of approval and your ten-digit State of Ohio Supplier ID number.  This will usually come within 24 hours or less after you’ve submitted the request.  Then you’ll have everything you need to proceed with the easy TechCred application!
