Good afternoon. You would want to open your bank account in Delaware and not create ties with California which would give rise to doing business in California. You can open a bank account by mail...simply have the bank forward the forms to open the account, fill them out and sign them, and then return them. I would recommend that you sign up for online banking and statements so that you don't have a bunch of mailings to California, but simply living in California and having statements sent there would not constitute doing business in California.
I hope this has given you the guidance you were seeking. I wish you the best of luck!

Actually Nevada is a great spot to do business because it has no franchise tax at all. But, because you are doing business on-linie, you could incur income tax in each state that you are deemed to sell things in. ... this is a complex tax question that you should get direction from your CPA about. What you need to open a bank account is a Taxpayer ID...which you can get on line from the IRS, your organization documents evidencing the existence of the entity, and a shareholder resolution/certificate authorizing you to sign. Plus, it will need an address, but you can use the registered agent address.
