This is a crime -, mostly poor people are just selling things to get buy. To have a license to sell on ebay is a crime to everyone in Pa.

If you read the regulations, people who are only, emphasize "only", selling their own items are exempt. The state is after virtual auction houses using ebay as an output. Still, IMHO, ebay is the actual auctioneer, not the poster of the item(s).

Gov. Rendell has signed SB 908 into law that requires REGISTRATION (not licensing) of all folks that accept consignments from the general public for sale on any internet platform (eBay, Auction Arms, Craig's List, etc.) No registration is required if you sell your own merchandise or occaisionally sell something for a family member or relative.
