You can sell a wide range of items on buy2eBay, including homemade goods and used or unused items from your closet. However, there are restrictions on items that violate laws or infringe on intellectual property rights.
To begin, choose “List an item.” We’ll guide you through creating and verifying your account, and setting up payment information during your initial listing. Keep your preferred payment account details ready and be prepared to receive a call or text on your phone for verification.
Upon confirming the receipt of the buyer’s payment, payouts are sent directly to your bank account from Monday through Friday (excluding bank holidays) within two business days. Once initiated, funds are generally available within 1-3 business days, depending on your bank’s normal processing time
Starting on January 1, 2022, IRS regulations mandate that all businesses processing payments, including online marketplaces like buy2eBay, must issue a Form 1099-K for all sellers who receive $600 or more in sales. This new tax reporting requirement may impact your 2022 tax return, which you may file in 2023. It’s important to note that receiving a 1099-K doesn’t automatically mean you’ll owe taxes on the reported amount. Only profits from the sale of goods are considered taxable, so selling an item for less than its purchase price typically does not incur income tax. For more information on these changes, check our 1099-K FAQ
