In your opinon, do you think it's going to make any difference, not registering as a 'business', when the proverbial dung hits the fan?

Edited to add: By the by, I see that evalueville has less than a 99% FB rating - I had thought that powersellers had to maintain a 99% minimum FB - am I wrong or was evalueville grandfathered before the requirement was mandatory?


I don't think it will matter much as long as any seller who is making a living and or extra 'income' selling on eBay -- pays their taxes. I also believe we are looking at a flat rate internet sales tax or something. I dunno. For those who don't pay their taxes, I believe your days are numbered.

I don't know too much about eBay's history per se with regard to former rules vs newer rules. However, I did research eValueville's history. Kind of like, a learn from those who are successful type of deal. Anyway, the article I read was dated a few years ago and at that time they reported that they were closing 300,000 listings per year. I'm sure it's more now. In other words, they're making eBay a decent chunk of change. I can't see eBay doing anything to rock their money making boat as it were.

I've also heard it explained that FB is calculated based on total volume or something and this affects the numbers and yadda, yadda. Anyhoo, yeah, P-r-i-v-a-t-e Seller.

Dum - de - dum - dum! Eek
