Is a business license required for a virtual Delaware business?

Question – I have formed a multi-member managed LLC in the state of Delaware. I am not a US citizen and reside in South Africa, so does all members. The LLC’s registered agent is located in Dover.

The intended business the LLC will conduct is e-learning by means of the sale of online project management courses. With the exception of the registered agent address, which doubles as a mail forwarding service, the business does not have a physical address in the US. ALL business will be conducted online and sales will be generated from worldwide sources.
