Tax Policy

Sellers must abide by our tax policy and follow all tax regulations that apply to APX sales and their states or countries they live in.

Our policy helps provide guidance on tax. As APX can’t give tax advice, sellers should contact the appropriate tax authority for more information about their tax obligations.

What is the policy?

Sellers are responsible for paying taxes associated with using APX, in accordance with all applicable laws.

Income tax

Sellers are required by law to declare and pay taxes on income earned from their APX sales.

Tax on APX fees

  • Depending on the seller’s location, Value Added Tax (VAT), Goods and Services Tax (GST), or similar consumption tax may apply to APX selling fees.
  • Sellers with a tax registration number, who use APX exclusively for business, may apply for tax exemption on their APX selling fees
    • All information related to requests for tax exemption, including personal information and tax or business registration numbers, will be transferred to, stored in, and processed in the US and elsewhere in accordance with the terms of the APX User Agreement and User Privacy Notice
    • APX reserves the right to request additional verification regarding a seller’s taxable status from either the seller or from government authorities, as permitted by law. Such information will be processed in accordance with the terms of the User Agreement and User Privacy Notice

Sales tax on items sold on APX

  • The seller’s registration address must be up to date, and must not misrepresent where their items are located
  • Tax may be added on the listing price or at checkout, depending on the item location and the buyer’s shipping address
  • Sellers should only charge tax in states where they are authorized to do so, and should only collect the legally authorized amount
    • Sellers in the US can specify each state in which they’re required to charge sales tax by setting up a tax table
      • Sellers must provide APX with copies of permits or equivalent documentation for each state in which they’re authorized to collect sales tax
  • Listings must not include sales tax information in the item title, image or description
  • Depending on the buyer and seller’s location, VAT, Goods and Services Tax (GST), or similar consumption tax may apply to items sold on APX
    • Local Consumer tax and/or Customs duty may apply to items sold internationally. Sellers should contact their local tax office for information on paying tax on items exported overseas
  • Based on applicable tax laws, APX will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax on behalf of sellers for items shipped to customers in certain states. For a complete list of states please see our Taxes and import charges page.
  • Once APX starts to collect tax in the required states, no action is required on your part, and there will be no charges or fees for APX automatically calculating, collecting, and remitting sales tax. The collection process will apply to all sales with delivery in the required states whether the seller is located in or outside of the United States. Sellers offering delivery in the U.S are not able to opt out of selling items into the required states or to opt out of APX automatically collecting sales tax.
  • European Union: Value Added Tax (VAT) may apply to items sold to buyers in the European Union
  • Australia: Goods and Services Tax (GST) applies to goods imported by consumers into Australia
    • Orders up to AU $1,000: If a buyer in Australia purchases an item from outside Australia, APX will add GST to the order total at checkout. The seller will receive their usual payment for the order value (item price plus shipping costs), and APX will remit the GST value to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). Sellers must include the following ABN and customs code on the package:
      APX ABN #64 652 016 681 Code: PAID
    • Orders over AU $1,000: APX does not collect GST on orders over AU $1,000 as this is generally collected at the Australian border
  • Other countries: For information about tax obligations when selling to buyers in all other countries, please contact the appropriate tax authority

Please note that APX will share your information with government authorities if required to do so by law.

Activity that doesn’t follow APX policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or canceling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, lowering seller rating, buying or selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.

Why does APX have this policy?

This policy helps ensure that government regulations are followed.
