I truly don't think that they even think or search out help before posting:
Can I sell on Amazon but ship products from Costco to buyer?
How to print 4x6 shipping labels for packages to FBA?

Nexus no longer matters.
Anyway....Amazon already collects and remits sales tax to a few states.
Unless the 3rd party seller does it. 
For sellers that use Amazon’s Tax Collection Services, it’s business as usual.
Of course, that's for Amazon Sales.
My eBay sales will be different, but I do suspect there will be some sort of ease that will be built in.

Take this in the way in which it's presented because it's not gospel, it's just good advice:
According to my 'tax guy,' more than likely Amazon is going to collect sales tax from all sales and remit it to the states.
As he said, corporate ecommerce companies (and companies that have the ability for brick and mortar AND ecommerce) have already been collecting in every state, and it works.
There will be some bumps in the road, but that is to be expected.

I have an eBay, etsy and an eCrater store, I'm gonna sit back and see how this plays out.
Luckily, I am blessed to have tax advice and I'll pass that along as I receive.

Hope this helps.
You beat me posting this!

Supreme Court rules states can require online retailers to collect sales tax
Read the article in full at this link:

The justices broke with 50 years' worth of legal rulings that barred the states from imposing sales taxes on most of the purchases their residents make from out-of-state retailers.
by Pete Williams / Jun.21.2018 / 10:22 AM ET / Updated 11:24 AM ET

WASHINGTON — Online shopping will soon become more expensive, after the U.S. Supreme court ruled Thursday that states can require Internet retailers to collect sales taxes.

The 5-4 decision broke with 50 years' worth of legal rulings that barred the states from imposing sales taxes on most of the purchases their residents make from out-of-state retailers.

The decision was a victory for South Dakota, which asked the court to uphold its recently passed law imposing an Internet sales tax.
I have never seen a more ignorant buncha new sellers posting questions to the Amazon Seller Forums in my entire time with Amazon.
Some of the questions make me wonder if they have their full faculties or not.

They reversed out the feedback presentation.

Now the feedback presentation does not show when Amazon is at fault.
The view of the feedback only shows the feedback, doesn't show any responses from seller if Amazon has refused to remove feedback. ( i.e. this order was fulfilled by Amazon where it was stored, packaged and shipped).

So we sellers create a 'stink' over the original feedback presentation and this is the solution.
Or was this the solution all along and we were #DistractAndDivert

If you're not already using the new FBA Amazon Fulfilled Inventory Page....
You will be soon.
Important: This page will soon be replaced with the new Manage FBA Inventory page.

Me = Old Dawg and hates new tricks

Better get on this before I wake up one day to find only the new interface.
No date, but if Amazon has the pop-up window to alert us, then it's time.

Oh. My. Freeeeakin. Gawd!
That is awful.
Whatever engineer thought that was an intelligent move needs to lose their job.
The percentage is crazy as no one leaves feedback.
Just go to the physical number...
It's just that darn simple.

I'm at 499.
Working on it.
We could discuss this in the private section of the forum or happy to do DM's.

I fought this when it happened.
The DAY that it happened.
Forums hadn't even noticed and I was livid.

I received a note that my ticket was answered and that feedback was back to normal.

Wonder what Amazon was testing out....Hmmmmm?

I detest their feedback system, it sucks

You've found that tidbit out about eBay.

It's just out of the norm to have it removed and not struck through.
Amazon's feedback system is whack.

Received a negative.
Negative was for condition of item when received.
Normally this is a strike through but with feedback still remaining to be seen.

Notified Amazon.

This time is different.
No strike through on the number feedback nor was the typical message from Amazon placed on the feedback.. ---->Message from Amazon: "This item was fulfilled by Amazon, and we take responsibility for this fulfillment experience."

I believe so.

The percentage of the feedback isn't worth a flip.

I received an email if I would be interested in having this service for a fee.

I still haven't answered as I'm sitting on the fence.

I have been thinking of opening a 'store' again...
100+ inventory has always been my bottom line for laying out $40.00 a month to eBay for a store.
AND since I'm getting those 100 free (don't know if you've been offered that) listings...I've opted to stick with this for now.

That's not to say having a store is a bad idea...
Not in the least.
Here's a handy link for calculating fee's and store subscription levels.

What is great about having a store is the name, your eBay url, categories, buy it now, auctions, keywords, the ability to list in any category, cleaning out your home of so-called 'collectibles, selling 'lots' of items works out great.
Within the last months I've sold a new in bag McDonald's Happy Meal Toy from the mid 70's for a nice little profit, several homemade soy candles, Paul Revere Copper Kettle, Christmas Candy, Christmas decorations, Easter Candy and egg coloring kits, clothing, Mother's Day Bath and Beauty set and books.

I've been doing fairly well on eBay and with no listing fees and less in final value... why not?

I'm glad you're seeing some success on eBay.
Prime Day...crazy nuts...promotions...
