I also use Mercari, which is also a second hand market app. However, it's kinda iffy. I don't like the payment process. Your funds won't get released until the buyer gets their item AND sends you a rating, after which you must also rate them. If they don't rate you, then the app automatically does it for them. It definitely has its flaws. It's not my favorite, but I've made a few sales there.

Does the Depop have to be done by phone like Instragram or can it be done on the computer. If so can you send me a link to it.

Sadly, the browser version of Depop is only for browsing. [frown] All the selling and posting has to be done via the phone app. 

However, here's a link if you'd like to take a look at how things are set up!

I have a lifetime shop at Zibbet also.  I had some sales then they changed their format, added websites, etc and took the sales numbers off your shop.  I had 477 views so are this month and 638 views last month but no sales.  I don't know why sales are so slow.  I asked them for sales numbers but they said they can't provide that.  They are now  revamping and sent out a questionaire or survey and have no clue what that is all about. I also have Artfire shops, that are grandfathered in to the old price of $5.95 a month.  Sales have been slim there just like here.  I have a Bonanza shop that is getting views but no sales right now.  

I would love to know your Zibbit addresses.  If we can't write them on here send them to me in a message.  I am wondering if we had a handmade group page on FB if that would help any of us.  

Julie

P.S. at the rate everyone is taking percentages I am about ready to sell off my website againand just have paypal for expenses.

So glad I shared the groups with you, Julie. I really assumed that you already knew of them. I'm only on one AY Pinterest board, and while it's still open the owner has archived it at her own account. No use in you asking to join that one because she's not monitoring it so that she could add you.

Why don't we start one for ArtYah ONLY instead one that is with other shops. I don't mind starting it and let it be a public group. I would maybe have to have some help to monitor it to be sure every thing is from ArtYah.

This ruling may not destroy us. According to this NBC article the ruling, using South Dakotas model would exclude smaller online retailers from the requirement. So as long as states don't challenge the model then we should be sheltered. They are going after the big boys of online retail, wayfair, Overstock, Amazon etc. Or at least that is how I understood the articles. However, we as small shop online retailers may end up having to pay some sort of fee if one is selling on one of the big boy sites like Amazon or even Etsy, to cover the taxes they are expected to pay.  Which to me is funny in a sad sort of way, since Etsy already evades taxes with their "Double Irish' tax avoidance scheme. 

From the article; "Thursday's ruling did not require all Internet companies to collect sales taxes. While larger companies certainly are now obligated to do so, the decision suggested that small retailers, who sell on eBay, for example, will not face the requirement."

I agree that for now the venues will be responsible. Like you though, I think they will have to pass down the cost somehow, because the people actually taxed are the buyers, not the website owners or the sellers. The website owners may be responsible for collecting and submitting taxes, but they won't want to absorb the costs.

Yes, I saw that on the news today. We knew something like that was coming one day. I think it's like anything else, if you're determined to push forward and not let the government or anyone else stop you, you'll find a way to adapt and adjust. Everyone has their limits though to how much adapting and adjusting they will do. It is discouraging though.

Isn't it up to each state now whether they will pass an online sales tax law? I'm not going to worry about it unless it happens in Colorado. Did anyone sign the petition to Congress that etsy has in the seller manager? It's in the  dashboard, right hand side, above the activity feed.

Exactly! I already collect taxes on Texas residents who purchase from me and am responsible to turn those in. It would be unfathomable to collect Itaxrs on every purchase for every state. I don’t make enough money to justify that much book work. There would have to a built in program on each selling platform that collects the appropriate taxes for each state and then disperses it to those states. Otherwise doing end year taxes just got more difficult for the small retailer. I’d pay the extra fees to that platform to not have to deal with it at tax time.

Not going to panic over the ruling, but keep a watchful eye on how it develops in the online world.
