  • How to Get a Resale Certificate [Interactive map] | SaleHoo
    52 4 Mar Hi noy To get the resale tax ID you will have to register your business in California Taxes will depend on California state requirements Every state is different but typically you have to pay sales tax based on your sales Some prefer it monthly others prefer it quarterly But you usually only need to collect sales tax in states where you have a nexus or base of operations I recommend talking to an accountant He or she can help you with registering and figuring out how often you need to pay taxes Reply Posted by Alica Walters on 20 05 8 Mar i am currently setting up my a e interior design business i would love to set up a dropship situation with an American Wholesale business However my business is registared in the UK I am not able to get a resale licences please advice me as to what to do Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 19 10 9 Mar Hi Alica Typically suppliers will accept your UK license as equivalent proof Reply Posted by Laura on 15 31 13 Mar Hello I am setting up an online store through an app poshmark com similar to ebay but they specialize in women s items only and I currently sell my clothing only If I wanted to expand what I sell by getting a resellers permit would i have to worry about paying taxes at the end of the year on any profits from selling items that aren t mine they don t charge sales tax so i wouldn t be collecting any sales tax Thanks Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 20 02 18 Mar Hi Laura That depends on where your business is registered Typically you have to pay sales tax on items sold in any state where you have a nexus a base of operations whether it s an office or a warehouse you own Some states don t charge any sales tax so you re in the clear if you re located there If you re shipping out of state you don t necessarily have to collect sales tax But it s always best to speak to an accountant as they re the final authority Hope that helps Reply Posted by Sam on 16 37 23 Mar I have a small business in Jamaica I live in Jamaica but want to buy wholesale items in the US What do I need in order to purchase these items I am not aware of what I need to present to these stores that I want to purchase items from Also if I have family members in the US can they purchase these items for me even thought they do not have a sale tax id Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 18 03 25 Mar Hi Sam Typically you would register your business in Jamaica and provide your business number as proof That would get your the tax exemption While your family could possibly buy the products for you they would not be able to get the tax exemption without some sort of proof of registration The other option would be to incorporate your business in the states but you d have to set up everything properly which means talking to a lawyer and or an accountant You d also be obligated to collect sales tax in whatever state you incorporate in as well Hope that helps Ultimately if you re not sure I strongly suggest talking to an expert Reply Posted by Janice L Mitchell on 21 54 9 Apr Hi I live in Louisville and I will be making and buying jewelry and accessories I have an EIN number in addition will I need a resellers and sales tax id Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 36 10 Apr hi Janice yes you ll need to get a reseller s certificate to collect sales tax on goods sold in state Resources that might help http revenue ky gov business salesanduse htm Reply Posted by John on 15 16 16 Apr Hi I live in NYC and I was wondering if you could tell me more about the process of recovering taxes paid to wholesalers I didn t have my reseller license on me Are only taxes on purchases made within the last year eligible to be included as deductions Is it possible to go back to the wholesaler directly to recover those taxes paid Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 21 17 Apr Hi John Those are great questions I think your best course of action is to talk to an accountant or other tax expert Tax law is pretty complicated stuff and varies by state and local communities I found a couple links that may be of some help as well http www tax ny gov pubs and bulls tg bulletins st how to apply for a refund of sales and use tax htm http www tax ny gov pdf publications sales pub843 pdf Reply Posted by Alfonso on 18 36 18 Apr Hi I live in Mexico I m registered in the tax department I pay my taxes but i want to sell on Ebay do i need a reseller license sales tax id Another question is If I want to sell on Ebay how can i ship directly the product to the buyer because the payment is made by paypal and this company send the pack to the registered adress on the account Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 48 27 Apr Hi Alfonso To sell on eBay you don t need a resale certificate That s just for dealing with suppliers in the US It ll exempt you from paying sales tax when you purchase from wholesalers However you have to be located in the states to get one Instead when you purchase from wholesalers you should be able to provide proof of business registration in Mexico For suppliers you want to look specifically for dropshippers They will send your products to your customers directly I recommend this guide http www salehoo com dropship Reply Posted by Kim on 12 39 22 Apr We are a wholesale comapny I was wondering if we have to have a copy of our out of state customers resale tax certificate or just from our in state customers Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 54 27 Apr Hi Kim Unfortunately I can t say with certainty Every state has different tax laws and some don t have sales tax at all Your best bet is to contact an accountant or other tax expert in your state Reply Posted by Robert Granda on 14 53 24 Apr I am a US citizen living abroad but have family in Florida and use their address for mail from banks credit cards brokerage etc I also if allowed will use it as my registered address at online retailers that I frequented before I moved abroad Ebay forced me to update to my current address due to concerns of a foreign ip address signing in but haven t given me any issues since My question is this I want to drop ship sell on ebay supply the product from a wholesaler in California I have a SS I also have a tax id for an LLC I was thinking of letting go defunct due to that consulting gig is done Should I apply for a new tax id Am I considered to be based abroad Florida nowhere Should I renew the LLC which is registered in Florida Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 17 02 27 Apr Hi Robert Those are some tricky questions The biggest issue will be sales tax VAT Technically since you re the one running the business wherever you are located is your nexus your base of operations and that will obligate you to follow local laws for tax even if you re abroad If am not sure you are able to use the Florida address as your registered address unless you actually conduct some operations from there Your best bet is to talk to an accountant or other legal tax expert to clarify these questions Laws vary so widely from state to state and country to country that it can be difficult hunting down the information on your own Reply Posted by Alphonso Crisp on 21 01 24 Apr how do I recover my resale Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 41 27 Apr Hi Alphonso I would contact the state to get the number Reply Posted by Michelle on 9 06 2 May Hi SaleHoo Team I m from the Philippines and I m planning to avail your dropshipping program However I understand that for legal purposes I need to open up a US Bank account like LLC for me to avail an EIN For that it sounds pretty simple because a lot incorporation are offering it online nowadays I just dont know how to avail my Reseller s Permit Sales Tax if I m from outside the US Can I get done online too just like EIN Is it free If you could give me some links on how to avail it then it would be very helpful Thanks and more power to SaleHoo Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 17 5 May Hi Michelle I think you should contact Support with your questions They should be able to answer your questions Good luck http www salehoo com support Reply Posted by Michelle on 18 20 3 May Hello I live in New Hampshire no sales tax here but I want to start buying from wholesalers to add inventory to my ebay store they all seem to require a tax id how can I get one Please help Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 10 5 May Hi Michelle This is what I found http revenue nh gov assistance resale exempt certs htm It appears that you just need to let them know you re in NH which doesn t collect sales tax Reply Posted by Theresa Grethe on 8 17 14 May Where can I go to get started buying wholesale and selling retail on Internet and in a store in an Y State This article was somewhat helpful thank you Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 46 15 May Hi Theresa You ll need to find a wholesale supplier and set up an online store If you re wanting to sell in a brick and mortar location you ll have to get premises and all the trappings that come with a brick and mortar location and of course you ll need a solid plan for how you want to run your business To find wholesalers I recommend signing up for our directory you get access to more than 8 000 suppliers You can also create an online store with SaleHoo stores but there are other options as well including Amazon and eBay of course http www salehoo com directory http www salehoo com stores Good luck Reply Posted by Tyler Silver on 16 51 24 May I am located in New York and I want to sell goods with my partner in Africa who has buyers both large and small orders For some items I would purchase them from an outlet store lets say in NY or NJ order other items online and order it to my shipping forwarding company that is based in Delaware that would forward it to Africa When I make that order from online or in store although I am physically in NY NJ they don t charge tax because the place it is going is in Delaware where there is no Sales Tax How would I go about taxes with these items Do I need a resale license I don t have an LLC yet but plan on setting one up this month where it makes the most sense If my buyer needs to pay taxes on these where can I find out how much they would be Thanks Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 14 43 27 May This is tricky If you re selling things actually in the States you need to worry about collecting sales tax and paying it to the state But it doesn t sound like that s the case you re selling in Africa which means you re subject to both customs and whatever tax laws are in place in the countries where you sell That said since you re in New York you should register your business there you technically have a nexus there since it s where you live and operation to get your sales tax exemption If you re stuck or unsure of what to do I recommend talking to either an authority on experts or an accountant attorney versed in this kind of tax law That s really the best way to make sure you re in compliance and doing everything correctly Hope that helps Here are a couple other links that might be of assistance http www tax ny gov pubs and bulls tg bulletins st exemption certificates for sales tax htm http www salestaxsupport

Florida http www stateofflorida com corporations aspx And plan on paying sales tax It s definitely a good idea to talk to an accountant to make sure you re all squared away there Hope this helps Reply Posted by Lacey on 7 44 18 Jun I m a military spouse living overseas Okinawa Japan and would like to purchase wholesale fabric both to sell sell products made from the fabric What do I need to do Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 15 15 19 Jun Hi Lacey I m honestly not fully sure I recommend talking to a legal tax expert about it If you re living on a base you re technically still living and working on U S soil so you should be able to set up your business and register it in the states then use that registration to purchase wholesale fabric without having to pay sales tax However I m not sure of the exact process for you Hope that helps Reply Posted by Ryan on 21 29 19 Jun Hello I have a business in Delaware how do I get a resale tax certificate Regards Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 14 24 22 Jun Hi Ryan Delaware does not charge a sales tax so there s no need for a resale tax certificate Instead you should be able to provide proof of your business s registration in Delaware to wholesalers and they should accept that http revenue delaware gov services Business Tax Exemptions shtml Hope that helps Reply Posted by siva on 8 41 21 Jun Hello I followed your post and Q A They are informative I have question about opening resale permit I am on H1b working visa Planning to apply resell certificate to resell online ebay amazon buying from wholesalers Am I eligible to apply for resale certificate I am on the process of my Green Card GC What kind of entity I can form Do I need to have some GC holder should be partnered Please advise Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 14 31 22 Jun Hi Siva It looks like you would not be eligible to apply for a resale certificate since you would not be able to work the company you created with an H1 B visa The most it appears you can do is be a passive investor put money in and let someone else make the operational decisions I don t know how obtaining your green card would change that I highly suggest talking to an expert in taxes and immigration to find out when you d be eligible to create your business and what your limitations are Hope that helps Reply Posted by Adam Rock on 0 18 20 Jul Hello I live in NY and recently started selling on ebay in small amounts of my own personal items to get a feel for the market I would be involved in I have since filed a D B A received my E I N and my Resale Certificate will be valid as of 8 1 2015 My question is should I be collecting taxes on the few items I sold personally on ebay None of these were purchased from wholesale companies and I paid the sales tax on the items myself I am confused about how to specifically define what I will be doing as a business as opposed to any personal ebay selling which I had done previously Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 19 10 20 Jul Hi Adam Generally speaking personal items sold on eBay won t be an issue with taxes You re selling them for less than you paid for them so it s technically a loss for you http www irs gov Businesses Small Businesses Self Employed Tax Tips for Online Auction Sellers When you start reselling wholesale items above a certain volume then it becomes a business I think the federal threshold for hobby vs business is about 600 annually under that you don t need to report it generally speaking but you should definitely confirm with an accountant States get a bit finicky about sales tax and every state is different I hope that helps Reply Posted by Dev Upadhyay on 1 35 26 Aug Hello We are a business establishment federally incorporated and based in Ontario Canada and we are planning to sell various technology products in US through several online marketplaces like Amazon eBay It would be a drop ship model with suppliers based in US We would be setting up a company in US if it helps in Delaware and will have EIN Can you please suggest us as to what else do we need in order to sell in all states in US and if we do not want to collect any sales taxes from our online buyers neither pay any sales tax to our suppliers based in US Like I mentioned above it will be drop ship model so we will not have a warehouse as our on line orders will be drop shipped directly to the customers by our various US suppliers Also we don t need any physical office address unless it is required by law Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 05 27 Aug Hi Dev Tax laws vary by states Delaware is one of the few that doesn t charge sales tax so you re not obligated to collect it on purchases made in that state as you would be in most other places When you sell to people in other states where you don t have a base of operations you don t have to collect sales tax at all Since you re dropshipping you most likely won t have to deal with the nexus issue for your suppliers Delaware will be your only nexus However some suppliers will require you to show proof that you re a registered business that s your EIN I don t know if you ll have to have a physical address listed I suggest you check with an accountant or another tax expert just to make sure you re absolutely doing everything correctly Good luck Reply Posted by Roland on 18 44 4 Sep Hi I have read through all the previous comments on this page but am still unsure to what extend sales tax is a concern for overseas based persons or businesses who are operating an eCom store i e on a platform like Shopify in the US I understand a US based business has nexus in their home state and in states where they establish a considerable presence nexus in many cases purely by using a warehouse or fulfillment service for their stock to sell to that state s residents I understand that the same concept is supposed to apply to the use of Amazon FBA services whereby the FBA seller is required to collect and remit sales tax to any state where Amazon ships the business goods out from However with this in particular I wonder how any FBA seller would even know in advance prior to the customer adding to cart and checking out and prior to actual fulfillment by Amazon out of which Amazon FC the order will be shipped from so how could this even be set up in the Amazon settings so that the appropriate tax rate for the respective state would be charged prior to checkout I understand furthermore that you responded to the previous post to Dev 27 Aug that you think drop shipping would not create nexus for the seller the drop shipper s business parter Are you sure about that I have read conflicting information about this However I think it would be ridiculous to deem a drop shipper s warehouse location as nexus for the seller in a different state The seller is not really operating the warehouse it s not their goods even though they buy goods on an individual basis to be directly shipped to their customers out of the drop shipper s warehouse It s only slightly different to an affiliate relationship where the affiliate would send sales leads to the wholesaler who then pays a commission and in turn sends out the same goods out of that warehouse Still I wonder if using a drop shipper for THEIR goods in such a business relationship definitely does not create a sales tax nexus for the seller in another state And most importantly being a non US based resident living in Australia do any of the above three mentioned scenarios apply to me anyway In other words would international eCom store or FBA merchants operating in the US even have to register for sales tax in any of these scenarios or are they in fact exempt Would it be better for me to set up an LLC in the US At the moment I am contemplating various business ventures as above either bulk import and the use of an order fulfillment warehouse service drop shipping from US merchants or Amazon FBA or a mix of them all One simple example to illustrate I could import goods from overseas and they get stored and fulfilled through a third party storage and order fulfillment service in say California All orders would then be shipped from California Now normally as a California based business I understand the nexus rules but would I even have any sales tax collection obligations in this scenario when I am actually based overseas Last but not least I have read about the origin based sales tax states vs the destination based sales tax states now this is getting insane especially the latter And even more so if a so called remote seller then has an otherwise origin based sales tax state for businesses located there turned into a destination based sales tax state CRAZY How are people supposed to deal with hundreds or thousands of different tax jurisdications on multiple levels state down to county city Thanks so much for your answers Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 17 18 7 Sep Hi Roland The tax issue is crazy complicated I know Each state has its own laws cities tack on even more local laws and then interstate commerce makes everything even more complicated You ve asked a lot of questions and I ll do my best to answer what I can If you re not in the U S you don t need to worry about paying sales tax in the U S Period You ll have to worry about registering in Australia The good news is that many U S suppliers will still gladly work with you Some wholesale suppliers might request proof of your registration in Australia so be prepared If you have a warehouse in the states or you use FBA that becomes a nexus However 2 states where Amazon has FBA centers don t collect sales tax which means in those states it s a moot point Importing is where things get very tricky because you start having to employ agents on your behalf you have to find space to keep the goods etc A lot of those activities can help create the nexus which obligates you to pay tax Here s another good resource about nexuses http www salestaxsupport com sales tax information sales tax help questions nexus Incorporating in the states will require getting a registered agent possibly an EIN and other steps And then you need to maintain it every year There s some good information about that here http www mynewcompany com international htm step3 And finally here s another resource about registering a business when you re based abroad http www salestaxsupport com blogs industry us sales tax for foreign sellers international sellers and u s sales tax registration I can t advise you whether to create an LLC here in the states or not I also can t really advise you on the tax issue You can still sell to the U S market via the Internet without having a presence here in the states That s not an issue But if you want to get involved with a business in the states I strongly advise talking to a lawyer or tax expert They know way more about the issue than I ever could Hope this helps somewhat Reply Posted by Marina Nelson on 7 28 7 Sep

Maryland So I simply charge the 10 000 and no additional tax 6 tax rate in MD I only would charge tax if the customer is in NJ and would only have to charge 3 5 given we are in an Urban Enterprise Zone is that correct Thanks Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 23 42 13 Oct 2015 Hi Steve That s a big number and I would hate to be wrong Was it something you sold online in person Did they come to your location A lot of businesses don t tend to just make large purchases online without some discussion and back and forth On in state purchases honestly can t say because I m not familiar with the tax laws in your area I ve never heard of urban enterprise zones so I don t know how they would work and whether state or local tax rates take precedence I strongly strongly recommend checking with an accountant or tax expert just to make sure you re in compliance and doing things correctly Reply Posted by MANUEL on 23 30 9 Oct 2015 Hello I want to start my online business but I live in Spain I would have to get me a license to sell in the United States Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 23 45 13 Oct 2015 Hi Manuel No license required to sell online in the U S but you might have to register with the Spanish government I don t know how taxes work for businesses in Spain If you plan to import to the U S or buy wholesale and store goods in the U S in your own warehouse space you ll have to register your business and pay taxes Hope that helps Reply Posted by Ran Golan on 22 12 10 Oct 2015 Hi I have a company in the Netherlands I am not a US citizen do I need a Sales Tax ID and if yes how do I do that thanks in advance Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 23 46 13 Oct 2015 You only need a sales tax ID if you have an office warehouse official presence in the U S That includes importing and storing goods If you re just selling online from overseas you don t need to worry about it Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 23 49 13 Oct 2015 If you will have a presence in the U S you need to register in the state where you re based Not all states collect sales tax either It s hard to say without more details Your best bet is always to talk to a tax expert or accountant Posted by guy nadeau on 16 10 13 Oct 2015 Hi Melissa I m from Canada more specifically New Brunswick anbd I ve been wondering about that tax thing ever since I have made my first affiliate commission back in 2011 I didn t make enough in my opinion since then to bother with but eventually if I want to make a business out of this I need to look at this a little bit closer I try to look through the internet to my local tax department and I emailed them the question I now wait to see if they gonna answer me and how I asked them what forms should I fill s a reseller and an affiliate Do you have an idea where I should go if I don t get any answer Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 23 51 13 Oct 2015 Talk to an accountant about it or another qualified tax expert They can answer your questions and often help you file the forms you need to scale

  • Alternatives to eBay: The 8 best places to sell in 2016 | SaleHoo
    Is eBid a Viable Alternative to eBay How eBid Directly Compares to eBay Want to know exactly what you ll get with eBid that you haven t had with eBay Here s the list eBay is a larger platform than eBid and receives more traffic eBid is much cheaper than eBay a lower risk option They re both large trusted marketplaces with a wide variety of product categories Both have an auction style format for product listings Who is eBid Most Suited To eBid is for you if you don t want to pay to list your items as you have to on eBay or if you d just like to try your luck on an alternative but similar network There s extra potential here if you know a thing or two about generating your own traffic How to Succeed With eBid Basically the lower level of traffic circulating on eBid compared to eBay is the only major downside So if you promote your listings effectively elsewhere such as social media or forums you can enjoy your traffic as well as lower traffic Some examples of items you could sell on eBid are DVDs Craft supplies Books Toys There s definitely potential here but also more work required to get your shop off the ground 6 Your Online Store Your Online Store The No Competition Option Selling on your very own website really is the ultimate option if you want to increase your profits and build a business that will become a long term asset If this appeals to you but you have no idea how to get started don t worry There s an easy way which I ll mention a bit further down When selling from your own online store you have to establish your own traffic which can make it a little slower to get started than selling in a bigger marketplace But once you re up and running you don t have to compete with anyone else and your sales are all your own With this option you can build up your own brand rather than eBay s or Amazon s When you sell on those platforms who s really making the sale They re spreading their brand not yours People say I got it on eBay or I got it on Amazon with no mention of the seller s name It s ultimately you contributing to their marketplaces and their sales Why not put that effort into yourself instead How Selling on Your Own Site Directly Compares to eBay Here are the benefits of running your own online store rather than selling on eBay You re building your own brand You can choose things like which payment forms to accept or tweak the design of your store to suit your preferences and your branding You re not competing with any other sellers on the same platform This means you don t lose sales to others It also means you don t have to use such competitive pricing This makes way for larger profit margins Who is Best Suited to Owning Their Own Store Honestly Pretty much anyone can get their own website and make a profit Setting up your own store isn t nearly as hard as it used to be and with a little time and effort you can sell exactly what you want to and how you want to You can learn about the pros and cons of owning your own website here and decide for yourself if it s something you d like to pursue How to Succeed with Your Online Store Selling on your own website used to be expensive and complicated but it doesn t have to be If you don t have website building skills and a heap of time then store builders such as SaleHoo Stores are a really great option for you With SaleHoo Stores there s no need for technical experience or knowledge you can have your own store up and running in minutes and with just a few simple clicks of a mouse You can see a SaleHoo store demo here Want a shop for yourself It s super easy Find out just how easy it is to set up your own online store here Then you just have to get traffic to your site to encourage sales There are a couple of great lessons readily available to help you with this including Get Buyers to Your Store and 4 Ways to Advertise Your Store There s also a community forum where you can ask questions and get advice 7 Niche Specific Sites Niche Specific Sites Smaller Markets but Highly Targeted Niche specific websites are marketplaces where people only sell one type of product So rather than the larger category based marketplaces like eBay or Amazon these sites hone in on one of those options and specialize in only that For example if you were specifically interested in selling clothing you might consider selling on a site like Threadflip Or if you wanted to sell gear for the outdoors you might try selling on GearTrade Heck if you were in the car market why not try Cardaddy How Niche Specific Sites Directly Compare to eBay Much smaller networks with less traffic than eBay Highly targeted to buyers of that niche You don t have to compete with other categories for attention These sites are less obvious options so some of your competition won t be here Who is Best Suited to Selling on Niche Specific Sites If you re passionate about a specific niche of products or you tend to bulk order a small range of items then niche specific websites could be a great platform for you This will allow you to really focus on one market and get to know the selling techniques that work best with that niche s buyer audience How to Succeed with Niche Specific Sites If you haven t already you need to really zero in on the type of product you d like to sell and determine how much demand there is A quick way to get a rough comparison of popularity is to do a keyword search You can use a tool like the Keyword Research Module in AffiloTools Simply type in the name of the product or niche that you re interested in selling and look at the monthly search volumes This will show you how many people are searching for words or phrases to do with that topic which is a strong indication of how much interest there is If you re tossing up a few options then try each one out to see which ones generally have more searches Once you ve got a strong idea of what you d like to sell try searching in Google for Places to sell product type Look for marketplaces that cater to selling in your specific niche like the examples we ve already mentioned Be sure to read about other people s experiences selling on them first If these sites come across as genuine and promising give them a go Finally you need to find trusted suppliers with the best products to sell on these networks For example if you were looking for clothes to sell on Threadflip you could try any of these Fashionable and affordable everyday wear dresses tops pants jeans skirts accessories etc Women s clothing and apparel dresses tops bottoms active wear etc Stylish sophisticated women s wear Contemporary and casual dresses suits and evening wear etc A huge supply of liquidated or surplus clothing stock Women s apparel dresses accessories etc Swimwear Bikinis swimsuits hats cover up dresses Plus sized clothing Or get something extra with styles from The UK Bali Turkey These are just some examples of the trusted suppliers you can access in the SaleHoo directory If you ve got a niche that you d like to sell to then type it into the search box there and find the best suppliers 8 Your Suggestions Have we missed a marketplace that you d like to see here If so let us know in the comments below and we ll add it to this list Stand outs will be researched and added in our next update Current suggestions from the comments on this post include The Early Years Boutique Gifts and products revolving around children and babies Auction My Stuff Art antiques and collectibles Swappa Gently used mobile phones and tablets Elephant Bid x2 Many categories such as electronics health and beauty jewelry clothing video games etc On The Hound General multi category marketplace Neat Stacks Mostly clothes and shoes but also toys electronics and accessories such as phone cases Kalamazam Art and crafts MikList Pinterest style marketplace strongly visual layout for selling Where do you prefer to sell So Where Do I Sell There are a lot of options for you to choose from so it depends on which of these following elements appeal to you most If you want similar to but cheaper than eBay Amazon and eBid are the closest relatives If you just want a broad network that s similar to eBay but cheaper then Amazon is your next port of call followed by eBid Both are worth looking into but Amazon has more traffic It s a giant right up there with eBay only with a much lower cost and direct selling rather than bidding If you have anything crafty or unique you should definitely try the likes of Etsy These creative style networks are really taking off with Etsy coming in first as a sellers choice These networks might be totally wrong for the type of product that you re looking to sell but if you re not tied down already then these networks are worth the time to try out If you don t want to pay to list items until you ve actually made a sale try Bonanza This network is certainly on the rise as a strong alternative to eBay The site has fantastic communication and your listings will only cost you if they re successful in which case it ll be a non issue If you do decide to give it a go remember to check out this guide to selling on Bonanza If you want to sell locally at no cost try Craigslist or even local markets This is a sort of cheap and nasty option where you re left to your own devices and often end up trading in person but if you don t mind selling locally and being a little more hands on in the selling process then this is an option to consider If you like to sell locally consider other outlets such as local markets especially if you enjoy this social element to selling These environments are full of buyers and can give you an extra chance to show off your wares and add to your sales If you want to dodge the competition altogether you should build your own online store If you want to avoid competition listing fees and paying commissions then consider running your own online store It s a little more work to get set up unless you use a store builder like SaleHoo stores and to promote but in the bigger picture it can be a hugely profitable option If you re really focused on one type of product try niche specific sites Finally if you re an enthusiast for selling one type of product but you don t want to build your own site it s worth looking into niche specific marketplaces Just do a quick Google search to see if you can find any in your area of interest If you re still unsure you could look into any of the suggestions from the comments We haven t looked into all of your suggestions yet unlike like the other options here but they re suggestions made by other sellers and could be worth looking into Have we missed one that you d like to see here If so let us know in the comments below and we

on 7 55 9 Nov I ve been using neatstacks com for a while now It s good way to get off the eBay monopoly and I sense it s going to take off very soon Reply Posted by angela Frank on 17 50 10 Nov I absolutely hate e bay I have been a great seller for 4 years averaging 1 000 a month Until two months ago my primary business took off Needless to say I quite selling on e bay for those two two and a half months This month November is slower for my primary business so I decided to pick up e bay traction again They put a limit of 5 items that I can sell a month because I have not been selling enough products WHAT I called the rude and unhelpful help line to be told that I need to sell more items I told her I am trying to sell more items but you will not allow to do so She said there is noting I can do about it but I need to sell items Why do I feel like I am talking to idiots How can I sell items if you will not let me Besides last time I checked a business was about making a profit huh Reply Posted by metalsnow on 17 29 16 Nov I was a happy ebay seller Gold star rating the works Then one day a buyer decided he didn t want to pay He lied to ebay about what he got and they returned his item without even checking into things I took a hard hit my paypal account was screwed and then locked I tried to talk to SOMEONE at ebay but was ignored Never mind the listing clearly said no returns and had detailed pictures of every type The person selling their item is gone the buyer has what he wanted and I m screwed out of 250 plus listing fee plus my account My sellers rating is hit my paypal account is locked What a bunch of crooks is there any legal recourse for ME Reply Posted by ray on 20 17 18 Nov ebay can be bad but paypal sucks if they make a mistake they say sorry or we will train our reps better thats like me saying we have a new cook if he is i need to be back there watching and training him Reply Posted by Mic D on 5 03 24 Nov WRITE A BOOK about Ebutt just don t use their name and then list it on Ebutt I do not know of even one business that is totally honest totally legal fair reasonable or really dedicated to the people they serve Some come very close however most of these are small family or privately owned Amazon charges sellers more than Ebutt and they do not carry the creative handcrafted unique or artistic items that can be found on Ebutt and other on line sales sites I would probably be one of the homeless if online sales sites were not available By the Way Amazon charges sellers More than Ebutt by as much as 20 more depending on what you are selling Also Ebutt owns aproximately 35 of Craigslist is and I can already see from the changes on Craiglist selling pages that Ebutt is involved Reply Posted by Carolyn on 4 07 6 Dec I ve been selling on Ebay for about 2 1 2 years I also sold on Amazon All and all they both take about 15 off the top when you combine paypal fees etc I too was a Top Rated International Seller until the new Defective DEFECT POLICY went into effect I spent about 40 hours auditing 900 transactions and discovered many of Ebay s flaws For example if you are not using one of the top Four USPS UPS FEDEX or DHL ebay does not capture tracing information from any other carriers and your shipping times will be defective They will accept OTHER carriers where you update the tracking but they don t capture the data so it will count against you even if the person received the item on time is happy and left you positive feedback Unbelievable As well I discovered that they would not correct any of their own errors after I was promised that they would remove the defect and countless hours on the phone with Ebay Customer Service if their error was over 120 days even though they are RETROACTIVELY counting defects the entire year prior to the August 20 12014 live date that is if you had under 100 transaction per month for the prior 3 months With the loss of the Top Rated position in September 2014 right before our busiest selling season as you other sellers know I am now in the position of digging myself out of retroactive defects that were considered defects a year ago What a mess Regarding Bonanza I have tried to purchase from them a couple of times and the orders are always cancelled because the sellers don t have the items in stock It reassuring that while I am selling less I ve decided to make more profit per item and not try to be the lowest price out there like I used to I agree with you Posted by Martin on 3 27 28 Jun buy low and sell high and make sure you make more money per month than Ebay makes off you Reply Posted by jones2014 on 15 08 18 Dec I recently opened a seller account with Ebay I sold 3 items all with a 5 star rating I check my account this morning and have a message saying that my account was suspended indefiently due to suspious activity When I call Ebay I still get no explanation as to what s going on All I was told was that My account was closed and I could NEVER sell on Ebay again and no one in my household could sell anything either How can they do this when I have never recieved any complaints what o ever Reply Posted by tntsprogram on 0 18 19 Dec Had Similar experience Sold Factory Sealed Item printer A couple of days after receiving product Buyer said it doesn t work I want refund I contacted him back and asked if he removed all the packing materials Since there are 6 ink cartridges I asked if he put the proper cartridges or snapped them in place He said the ink wouldn t charge etc I never heard from Buyer again but he filed a Refund with Ebay Then he filed a case Buyer did not communicate etc I had no refunds etc Ebay sided with Buyer They wouldn t even give me anything I am very upset by this Now tracking said the item is at my post office returned I went to post office there is no notice of item etc I even went with film crew to the post office If I end up receiving the item And check that it has been manipulated tampered with Or buyer has switched out parts I will fille a police complaint for theft etc Since I am in the media I will not tolerate any fraud etc I will have things documented opened in front of film crew etc Maybe this will become a example etc Why won t Ebay fight for the Seller When I called Ebay they seem like nice people But I don t know what is going on I have been selling for years have hundreds of positive feedback etc The buyer has less than 20 feedback s since 2006 Buyer wins no matter what Why Does the no return policy mean anything Is there any legal remedy etc So we can say no returns but because of Buyer protection that over rules Something has be done about this Like I said Ebay did not fight for me as a seller at all just said Ebay has decided in the Buyers favor Reply Posted by Fusion on 21 46 8 Dec 2015 I think there should be a class action law suit against eBay It appears to be the norm now and attracting the biggest scammers as buyers Reply Posted by nazman on 23 59 3 Jan I sold an item on ebay and as soon as i despatched it the buyer decided he didnt want it and told me to cancel delivery which i cudnt then when he got it he said it was faulty and got a refund from ebay i didnt even get my item back Reply Posted by Christina on 12 55 7 Jan Hi check out www eBuyersReviewed com It s a place to read reviews on online buyers provided by other sellers who have already sold to those buyers It also allows sellers to write and post reviews on their buyers for the benefit of other sellers Sellers can make the Internet a better place to transact Reply Posted by on 23 13 9 Jan Ebay I feel like they are pimps at times on etsy seller are allowed to talk about themselves list their Site etc They don t ask etsy for 100 down like Ruby Lane Bonanza has an 8 a month option but you have to pay up front for a year plus the lower cost plans don t carry the free trial thing which is another deal wreaker with me I have my own Store but not eBay s steel planted foot I can t deal with non paying bidders they cheat sellers essentially and basically ebay does tolerate it I ran a little self effacing experiment I have my prices and ship at baseline affordable for both seller and buyers I never overprice but choose a more reasonable number on the price that best aligns to the product I dropped to 99 then all the way to a penny who CAN go lower than that NOBODY No fight buyers sorry Wwhew the Watchers started popping up Even the Bargains just sit around unclaimed unbought disappointing but certain buyers in certain online storefronts just expect near freebies But who really pays for it WE do when we are sellers I would recommend etsy first but I myself am eying the market for successful sites to sell that DO have a high visitor volume Reply Posted by on 23 19 9 Jan Oh and another thing Amazon doesn t disperse payment reimbursement seller earnings like they used to Also I m restricted from certain listings such as DVDs Music It used to be I could confirm shipment then initiate a Transfer from them instantly That was last year sometime not anymore I shipped via UPS a sew machine which cost over 65 00 THREE MONTHS it was 3 months until amazon paid me How could I have shipped to their customer had I not had my credit card Now they owe me again another balance close to 20 00 Their email HELP is pretty much a very frustrating waste of valuable time as there is no way to get a specific streamlined request and then of course they have you repeat everything or ask you do I don t carry it that far as I know bette at least now Best thing is to call but I don t know what kind of specific or general explan they d give the seller why they are not being reimbursed paid Reply Posted by Robert on 3 43 16 Jan I found a new alternative with lot of features but free and they only allow paypal witch is ok with me because it gives some confidence to buyers Elephant Bid Reply Posted by Bobby on 0 28 29 Dec 2015 Funny I just checked out that site you mentioned elephantbid com and any item I did a search for came up with 0 items found Looks like a phony site to me Trying to get personal info A scam Reply Posted by on 3 55 23 Jan I ve been with eBay since the beginning and I too am sick of the rail roading sellers are getting hammered with One eBay worker posted in a forum that they don t punish buyers much because they re afraid they ll go somewhere else I just got scammed by a buyer who used a loop hole to not only keep my item but get a refund too Then the scammer added a nice negative hit piece to my 10 year long standing 100 feedback And the ebay system for filing complaints on a retrobate buyer is a waste of time Nothing answered nothing done And when I had to call customer service a few months ago I couldn t even understand the person who had a thick non english accent An hour on the phone and she couldn t solve my issue just i ve made a note on it regarding your account and it should be worked out within a few days Never was I can t believe someone out there hasn t started an auction site that actually helps sellers by now with lower fees I sure as h can t go on dealing with the aggravation charges Glad to see some ideas here though I ll try some of them out Reply Posted by Dave on 14 11 6 Feb Ebay seller also account restricted also sat here waiting for some explanation why while reading your invoice for January which turned up no problem We ve held a relatively short term account but we had accumulated great feedback until the rug was pulled from under our feet with no explanation other than below average seller status after being advised to open an eBay shop After a brief chat with eBay reason is that orders have been cancelled My explanation in writing was being as we are manufacturers of our items we had a pre Christmas mechanical breakdown and not wanting to let anyone down we cancelled the orders nine along with messages to explain why everyone responded and understood our dilemma along with a high percentage stating if we got back to business then carry on with the transaction Unfortunately we could see a way through so reimbursed all via paypal with charges incurred no cases where opened or no bad feedback was left on our account I must add that all orders where sent and in time for the festive season and free of charge which must have boosted eBays reputation for buyers no end and at our cost This was explained to eBay customer service who said they understood but it would have to go to the special team probably ex gangsters who stated rules are rules so nothing could be changed which was disappointing to say the least but the disappointment only lasted one week before they trashed all our hard work and the account Anyway at least I know now from reading the above messages that it s hardly worth sitting here waiting for good news as I don t think it s worth the hassle being with ebay anyway If they can t see what the problem is with their selling site then I m not stepping forward to tell them Yes it is the No1 selling site but with what we all know in business if you run something like that it should by rights fail I feel really sorry to some of the people that have been building up business for years so the best luck to everyone here in finding a better alternative Dave Laser Cut Design Reply Posted by Steve Spurlock on 23 01 12 Feb I am also an ebay seller and have been for a mere 7 months It used to be a much better place to sell as I am not a big item or a large quantity seller I sell collectables which average about 15 each Although I don t have a higher quantity of listings than I did 4 months ago my monthly bill has now increased 300 I used to pay 300 per month now I pay between 800 and 900 It s ridiculous Because of the items I sell I am now working all month just to pay the outrageous fees So Today I started moving my listings over to rbiz It s free to list and they charge a small final value fee of 5 I like the site so far but as with many others it just doesn t have the traffic yet Hopefully it will soon and my listings will be there from now on Reply Posted by paul on 19 36 17 Feb Try miklist com another free alternative to eBay where you can advertise what you want for free Reply Posted by Travis on 0 29 28 Feb After one year with ebay I closed my store I am tired of buyers keeping items and ebay giving them their money back tired of the high fees and changing rules Tired of spending hours on hold trying to get answers I have now moved my items to Bonanza where at least if I don t sell anything I don t have to pay anything I just hope Bonanza does not become like ebay I hope we can get enough sellers to go to Bonanza to make it worth it Reply Posted by Jason on 1 45 2 Mar Nice list but let me add one more There s a free online marketplace called artsy us It s like Etsy but free Reply Posted by Dennis on 21 16 17 Mar eBay and Paypal now charges a combined 13 for everything you sell Sold something for 1000 bucks Guess what they re taking 130 bucks from that sale Ugh There has to be a better alternative What happened to selling something that much and eBay only charging you 12 dollars Reply Posted by betty on 1 12 19 Apr i am sick of ebay i have a store on ebay and every day they remove some of my listings because my seller performance is low w e l l hey you can t make someone buy from you i have fantastic feed back but yet they are removing my items but it is o k because what they are removing i am putting on another web site out of New York and doing good with it when they remove all my items i am going to be through with ebay everyone selling on ebay should be looking for alternative to sell on thanks Reply Posted by CoastHI on 23 24 28 Apr Thank you everyone for the advice and I too am hopping off eBay for just about every reason that has already been discussed here I can t wait to dump them I remember back in the day when fees were nominal but they back door charges on your shipping as well eBay SUCKS Reply Posted by James on 2 47 1 May I would definitely not recommend Amazon to sell on to my worst enemy I opened an account there and started selling in 1 day I sold over 1000 and then they froze my account Told me they had to make sure everything was good with fraud protection and that the hold would be released within 24 hours and i could get back to selling Shortly after that they suspended my account and said i was not aloud to sell vaping supplies although there are still 100 s of people selling them on their site and have been for years Now they are holding my money for 90 days and have closed my account But yet 100 s of others are still selling the same items as we were selling seems they can do what ever they want and think they can get away with it have spoken with class action attorneys and they are looking into the possibilities of a major payday how does this sound to you So I recommend that everyone just stay clear of Amazon Reply Posted by Kerry Borowick on 23 07 1 Dec 2015 James my name is Kerry and I sell over 2000 items on ebay and amazon and I have the same problem with both sites Let me know about that class action suite Reply Posted by natalie on 4 18 4 May Today I called ebay and questioned why they have changed the free listings from 50 items to 20 per month I was told twice by ebay s foreign representative that I just needed deal with it How s that for customer service to the sellers that pay their fees salary Reply Posted by motherwaitress on 14 39 6 May Its all about EBAY GREEDYNESS They need to wake up Reply Posted by Edie Hembree on 18 38 7 May I have been selling started buying first on EBAY since around 2002 They are definitely PRO BUYER FEES ARE BECOMING OUTRAGEOUS SOLD A USED PURSE TWICE AND THEY REMOVED THE LISTING said it wasn t authentic ok well let s wait till the buyers bid and win and expect to receive item CRAZY I can deal with that I bought it used I never said it was authentic Because I really did not know MY PROBLEM is the always INCREASING FEES even taking part of your SHIPPING COST I buy the item prepare item to sell wash etc take my time to list said item and ebay ends up with 15 and paypal Ebay There really NEEDS TO BE A COMPETITOR that WE RESALERS selling NICE USED PRELOVED ITEMS ONLY No big stores selling hundreds of new items Let s go from 50 free listings to 20 free listing and tell us that s better Ebay really YOU ARE MAKING BILLIONS Let sellers make some Any ideas Thanks Reply Posted by Robert McKenna on 21 42 7 May I was a Bronze Seller with over 20 000 positive feedback for over 14 years and during Christmas had a flood and had to refund 6 customers for product I could not deliver I was shocked to say the least when I was informed that after 14 years I was now banned not suspended for a limited time BANNED FOREVER I appealed but they refused to even consider letting me back on Ebay does not care about the customer or the vendor Sell elsewhere I now do twice as much business with even more profit on Amazon Bonanza and anywhere I can sell Ebay can go Reply Posted by jennie sargent on 13 19 7 Jun Can someone help me please as a good place to sell online I am a 16yr seller on eBay with 100 feedback but my sales are down by 90 and I can no longer pay my bills so I have to

Best subscription I ve ever made Reply Posted by Melissa Johnson on 16 03 5 Jun Sally thanks so much It s great to hear that Reply Posted by Cody Graham on 12 17 3 Jun I actually haven t started selling to my customers yet because I m still worried about my customers being I want to sell video game console and electronic accessories replacements because a lot of people like me like to get cool new stuff to ramp up they re products every one who owns a console or electronic device eventually needs replacement parts and all of these rarely weigh more than 3 lbs a piece Furthermore accessories and replacement parts are less likely to show up at someone s door damaged or not working I m not saying it s impossible but the odds are in my favor Another reason why I want to start out selling with this kind of niche is because it will allow my company s transition to selling actual electronics and the more expensive heavier products or electronics a lot more seamless than it would otherwise when my company reaches a strong place in the marketplace The idea that the sky s the limit and the fact that I hate my day job motivates me to keep trying no matter what I ve found that my day job has actually taught me how to deal with almost every kind of customer I m going to be selling to I m a self check U scan cashier at the busiest grocery store in our entire region and these check out machines are seriously pieces of crap it s always breaking or freezing up and messing up people s orders So people get really pissed off EVERY SINGLE DAY Guess who has to calm them down Me Our policy is do whatever it takes to make our customers happy so that they ll always come back knowing we ll take care of them I ve been working at this grocery store for 5 and a half years holding multiple positions along the way I m back at cashiering due a severe shoulder injury Point is while I do hate this job I ve managed to keep it and the customers freaking LOVE me This has helped me with unhappy customers on eBay and I know it will with my e commerce store I haven t started drop shipping because I know first hand what people are going to expect from anyone they buy from If they re giving you their money they expect 5 star service even if they re buying something that s less than 2 It may sound crazy but it s true This is why I haven t gone live with my online store yet because I already know what s going to go wrong So I ve been buying from my suppliers to make sure that they re going to ship fast and leave my customers happy It s seriously such a pain and after ordering from them it makes me nervous I don t have a reputation or a credit line but the warehouses I would ideally partner with would 1 have a warehouse in the U S 2 ship with USPS which in my opinion has the cheapest and most reliable shipping service and 3 have quality product at cheap prices It s so hard for because I feel like I m so alone on this and I wish the best drop shippers would give me the benefit of the doubt but so far I ve pretty SOL Good article though very true Reply Posted by Anthony Chai on 18 33 3 Jun Marc Ransom andl the Folks at Salehoo Thanks for the information I received today and in the past from Marc
