Found this info on another forum I belong to.
I'm not here recommending the below information, I'm just passing it along.
My advice is you meet or discuss this with your accountant before considering.

Open a Taxjar account and wait for the email that says they are done calculating your tax.

See what states they found you have Nexus in. (States were Amazon had stored your stuff in their warehouse.)

Open your account in each state. 

Tell them you just opened your business or pay back to when you did open it.

Open accounts in all of those states.

Use the number the states give you to enter into Amazon so they start collecting tax for you.

Start sending the tax money to each state according to the schedule they give you (monthly to annually).

Use the Taxjar amount to know how much to send.
Note Taxjar will do that for you, for a fee.

One person posted 3 to 5 years.
I believe there will always be a niche for the hard to find and discontinued items that used to be so easy for me to find.
The problem then will be being approved for those categories where you have found a hard to find or discontinued item.
Predictions anyone?
My money is on 5 years.

« on: July 02, 2018, 07:28:26 PM »
I found today when working up a shipment to the warehouse...
I have a storage monitor.
It's helpful.
Does it take up the bottom of the page?
Do I think Amazon is testing?
Do I think Amazon will update it's location and info?
Not too worried about the storage monitor, it does make me aware of how much cubic feet I have at the warehouse and how many oversize items I have.
This will be worked out.

Harmful Feedback & Criminal Defamation: LEGAL ASPECTS

For those of that go far back with eBay and selling.. I can well remember back in the day the sellers that would post this same type of useless thread on the eBay forums.

Take control of your Inventory Performance Index

Jun 29, 2018
Use the Seller Central Inventory Performance Dashboard to improve the key factors influencing your FBA Inventory Performance Index (IPI). The dashboard shows you how these factors – excess inventory, stranded inventory, sell-through rate, and in-stock rate – influence your score, and suggests actions you can take to improve your IPI.
Oh Good Lawd, he'd have had a day with them.
Cruel, man...just cruel.

Wouldn't that be nice, to see an uptick on eBay sales during the holidays?
It's Christmas in July in a few days.
I have some items to put up and not in the least bit worried about them or not.
Have you been given the opportunity of 200 free listings a month?
I'm glad you're seeing eBay as a viable solution.

True. True.
I'm seeing success on eBay.
No issues, prompt payment and I'm ungated in every category.
I don't have all my eggs in one basket.
The questions regarding sourcing, labels, printer, ungating, receipts, China, will amazon remove a negative feedback for such and such reason, why didn't Amazon deliver my customers package on time (we'd all like to know the answer to that question but never will), I want to sell this <fill in the blank> product but I need to change the original page and add a free bonus (ARGHHH!), free giveaways, youtube videos for your ecommerce channel, giveaways for reviews, taxes (asking freakin help about taxes LLC incorporated and more on the boards) and more.

I know, I know...
I gripe about the postings on the Seller Forum and have for a decade.
This latest group?
Arguably the worst.
Here's one of my reasons for shopping online:
Free Delivery of Large of Heavy Items.

It's brought straight to my door and I sign for it.

Revival of Brick and Mortar Stores?
Hmmmm...I believe what is coming our way after the Retailocalypse ends (yes, retail brick and mortar stores are in an apacalyptic state) will be the strong and those that worked hard to bring forward an ecommerce presence.
There is a Retail brick and mortar Ice Age that has been coming and is going to get worse.

Those that survive did their due diligence and prepared.

Buyers are used to shopping online.
Buyers love the convenience of shopping online, open 24/7 and there are sites that review products.
Buyers LOVE that they can shop online and not have to walk into a store to purchase and save their time for other more important things.

My son purchased a set of books recently from Amazon (for one of his college classes).
The books were the same price in our local Books A Million.
With a full time job, two children, a wife and life...You can bet your sweet bippy he ordered it online and it came in 2 days.

Did he mind paying tax?
Do I mind paying tax when I order online?
Does my disabled daughter who does the majority of her shopping online mind paying taxes?

That's my two cents.
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.

« on: June 14, 2018, 11:19:51 AM »
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
