Ecommerce options: whether to sell through Amazon or your own website

Amazon is an e-commerce behemoth. It started as an online bookstore in 1994, and is now the world’s largest online retailer. If you’re a small company, the decision to sell through Amazon can seem obvious – after all, you won’t be able to compete with it – but it’s not automatically the best decision for every business. With Amazon Australia set to open early next year, it’s a good time for Australian and New Zealand retailers to think about their choices – take advantage of the Amazon platform, or stick to their own website.

Taxes, thresholds, and penalties - understanding changing tax law in Rhode Island

As more and more international businesses start to sell through Amazon, understanding the ins and outs of US tax law becomes increasingly important. Unfortunately, it’s not necessarily an easy task. With varying regulations in 50 states, and laws that are constantly changing and being challenged in the courts, getting your head around your responsibilities can be difficult. Rhode Island is a good example of the complicated issues that can arise. In this state, Amazon sellers can’t technically be forced to register for sales tax, but they are being made to jump through a number of hoops if they don’t.

Sales tax, historic data, and multiple channels - understanding taxes in Pennsylvania

Like many states, Pennsylvania is in the process of introducing new tax legislation aimed at ecommerce retailers.
