My niece told me about the 'new' site.
I'm addicted to checking it daily.

Woot.com was the land of 1 item a day at a discount price, then Amazon bought it and made it into a dumping ground for stuff they can't sell, with several items a day, but nothing special.

For those that miss the old woot.com, the guys that built it have launched a new site, meh.com  :D!

This may be old news to some, but I don't get out much and just found it. If you knew already, why didn't you tell me?

Amazon sent out a follow up email that lists which states they'll be collecting tax on the selling fees and fba fees.  From the email:

• Amazon is required to collect taxes on Selling on Amazon fees in Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, South Dakota or West Virginia, based on each state’s tax rates. Selling on Amazon Fees include the Referral Fee, Subscription Fee, Variable Closing Fee, Per-item Fee, Promotion & Merchandising Fee, Refund Commission Fee, Checkout by Amazon, and Sales Tax Collection Fee. For example, if your business is located in West Virginia, and your sales tax rate is 6.39%, and you sell an item with a total price of $20, which is subject to a 15% referral fee, we will collect and remit a sales tax of $0.19 to comply with state laws (calculated as 6.39% of the referral fee amount of $3.00). If your business is located outside Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, South Dakota or West Virginia, we will not collect sales tax on the Selling on Amazon fee you pay.

• Amazon is required to collect taxes on FBA Prep Services in Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois or West Virginia, based on each state’s tax rates. FBA inventory prep fees include the Labelling Fee, Polybagging Fee, Bubblewrap Fee, Taping Fee, and Opaque Bagging Fee. For example, if you decide to use FBA Prep Service to bubble wrap your products, and the service is performed at a fulfillment center in Arizona, and the sales tax rate at that location is 8.37%, and the bubble wrap fee is $0.80/unit, we will collect and remit a sales tax of $0.07 to comply with state laws (calculated as 8.37% of the bubble wrap fee amount of $0.80/unit). If the service is performed at a fulfillment center outside Arizona, Connecticut, Illinois or West Virginia, we will not collect sales tax on the FBA Inventory Prep fees you pay.

Received an email from Amazon today about my mobile phone accessories and the need to update ASINs.
Thing is...I don't sell any mobile phone accessories and only sold a few items back ohhhh around 10 years ago.

^ Ha!  Sounds like another typical day of bots gone wild at Amazon Smh.   I can't help but wonder how many bed bug proof mattress covers, pillow covers, etc. got flagged

Yeah, ebay has started their own payment system, but I haven't shopped there enough lately to even see it.

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.
