Does anyone have any experience with the legalities of businesses seeling their products on eBay? Specifically, If a business wanted to sell re-furbished or used products with no bidding, just the "Buy it Now" price, would that create a problem? As long as the business keeps all the necessary info for tax pruposes, I don't see how it could be trouble.

But feel free to enlighten me... thanks, I'll hang up and listen.

Check out Ebay Stores. It's for folks who offer products and services through the eBay site.

You will have to check the tax laws for your state. Some states require the collection of sales tax if you sell mail order to people in your state.

Yes, I think Zeruel said is the only catch. I've ordered from businesses via eBay in the past, so I know they're out there. Some will include a "XX residents include X% sales tax" bit in their auction. As long as you do that, you should be OK.

Technically it's not a catch. In my Accounting 220 class, the prof said that if you collect the tax or not, the seller is responsible for it and will be required to pay the state for it.

It only makes sense to pass that cost on to the customer

Consult a lawyer or a state official.

Willful ignorance of science is not commendable. Refusing to learn the difference between a credible source and a shill is criminally stupid.
