Oklahoma doesn't have sales tax on services, so I *might* not be hit by it.  We have tax on tangible goods, so Amazon *might* decide that FBA prep qualifies.  Under Okla law it's supposed to depend on if the fees for the supplies (such as the cost of the poly bag and cost of sticker) are separated out from the labor portion of fee or not, but it really comes down to Amazon's interpretation of it.  :/

A few years back our state legislators *almost* passed a bill that would have taxed services, but there was so much backlash they backed off at the last minute.  It would have meant sales tax on basically everything: haircuts, accounting services, doctor visits, surgeries, etc.  Smh

Hope nobody else here is affected by it.

I'm also signed up to sell on Poshmark and Etsy

Depending on item and where I feel it will sell the best... that's where my items are at.
From Reddit

So if I’m reading this correctly, referral fees are the biggest item in the list is referral fees. If you have standard 15% then with sales tax (assuming avg 6%), it’s 15.9%. Plus the other increases... I don’t like losing 1% of my net. <----not from me. I'm quoting a poster from the sub-reddit.

Similarly, some states consider FBA inventory prep fees such as bubble wrap, polybag, taping and labels as taxable. Seller fees is not increasing however; you might see tax applied to some seller fees.

For more information regarding this change, refer to the FAQ below:

- When does this begin and where can I see any tax collected on my seller fees?
Beginning June 1, 2019, Amazon will start collecting sales tax on taxable seller fees. Tax collected will reflect with the order fee on the transaction details of your Payments Reports. Date range payment reports will continue to reflect the sum of fees per order.

- Can I opt out of using FBA fulfillment services that may be taxable?
FBA services are performed on your items when you elect to purchase these services from Amazon or when the packaging and prep requirements are not met.

My stats look Pretty Pretty Good.

As we all know, it only takes one little bitty issue to throw our seller accounts down that deep deeeeeeep hole with Amazon.

Stumbled upon this new beta in my Amazon settings this am.
Didn't this past year eBay began having other means of payment?
I purchased some shipping supplies in January and was able to choose Paypal or their own card carrier.
Worked smooth as silk.

I'll hang around a bit on Amazon...
Specifically October thru December.
After end of May this year, I hope <fingers crossed) to be on vacation from Amazon until October.
Maybe ship in one shipment a month off oddz and endz. 
That's easy money.
Otherwise, I'm having a ball doing my previous collectibles, vintage, etc on eBay.

16 to 17 threads?
That seems low.

That many items mislabeled by a bot?
I would say unbelievable, but.... Nope.

Are you planning on leaving the Amazon platform entirely in the next year or so? And good for you in building your ebay store.

I think with this, you'll start to see some ebay sellers try to steer their customers into other methods of payment.
