eBay will not increase the fee for Digital Services Tax
I am not sure if eBay is being fair to sellers or eBay wants to keep their sellers happy but you will be surprised to note that eBay has announced that eBay will not increase the fee for sellers inorder to cover the Digital services tax of 2%
This is a good news and may put a little pressure on Amazon, As you are aware that Amazon has already increased the price in EU country to cover the online tax.
“Under the current international tax framework, the value businesses derive from user participation is not taken into account when allocating the profits of business between different countries. This measure will ensure the large multinational businesses in-scope make a fair contribution to supporting vital public services.”

I would like to give eBay a big thumbsup for their stand on the fee and hopefully others will follow the suit , namely Amazon!
