I also received the 2 of the exact same recorded voice message. The one on 9/20/18 (213-568-4114, left a website address as amazonprofits.org. The 2nd one, the same recorded message (same voice, etc), came from phone number 850-842-5658, and website address left to contact or shop at was shoppersweb.org. I did not try them until recently due to a job loss. So here about 3 weeks later, although I figured they were scams, I tried to check into them. When I tried to check out either one of those websites, I was sent to a website that sold website domains. Interesting - doesn't sound like they keep the website very long either.
Under Texas law, certain items are exempt from sales tax, and certain purchasers may not be required to pay sales tax. For example, most food and food ingredients are exempt from sales tax. You can find information on various exemptions in Rules 3.286 through 3.344 of the subchapter on sales and use tax in the Texas Administrative Code. Also, the TCPA continues to make available online a guide to exemptions, dated September 2007, that focuses on exempt organizations. You may also want to check the TCPA’s Sales and Use Tax FAQ page.
On top of that, states are continually introducing new tax laws and modifying old ones to capture revenue on everything from streaming media to bicycles. This last one, oddly enough, was passed in Oregon, arguably one of the more bicycle-friendly states in the country, as part of a transportation bill designed to raise money for infrastructure funding.
Like thousands of other desperate people out there, barely making ends meet, and barely keeping food on our tables, I just wanted to believe there might be an honest way to make living on the internet. After reading your review I felt once again, like I was kicked in the butt. But after a few minutes, I did feel re-leaved that I still had food money for my daughter and I. For that I thank you for the reviews you all do.
(b) A provider of Internet access service or online services (a “provider”) is not deemed to be the agent of a vendor for purposes of determining the application of 830 CMR 64H.1.7(3) to such vendor solely as a result of: 1. the display of such vendor’s information or content on the provider’s out-of-state computer server, or 2. the processing of orders through the provider’s out-of-state computer server. See id.
(b) Prior Tax Periods. An Internet vendor may have engaged in in-state contacts other than as referenced in 830 CMR 64H.1.7(1)(b)2.a. through c. during tax periods prior to September 22, 2017. In these cases, the vendor is liable for tax for such prior tax periods if: 1. the contacts created sales or use tax jurisdiction and; 2. the vendor did not collect and remit the tax. For example, for purposes of illustration only, an Internet vendor with a principal place of business located outside Massachusetts may have previously: a. owned or maintained inventory or other property in the state; or b. contracted with an in-state representative (including a related person) other than as referenced in 830 CMR 64H.1.7(1)(b)2.a. through c., and thereby created state sales or use tax jurisdiction. In these cases, the Internet vendor would have been subject to tax on all of its Massachusetts sales for the tax periods in question. Such a vendor may seek to use the Department of Revenue’s voluntary disclosure program for such prior periods.
An omni-channel approach not only benefits consumers but also benefits business bottom line: Research suggests that customers spend more than double when purchasing through an omni-channel retailer as opposed to a single-channel retailer, and are often more loyal. This could be due to the ease of purchase and the wider availability of products.
With more choices of products, the information of products for customers to select and meet their needs become crucial. In order to address the mass customization principle to the company, the use of recommender system is suggested. This system helps recommend the proper products to the customers and helps customers make the decision during the purchasing process. The recommender system could be operated through the top sellers on the website, the demographics of customers or the consumers' buying behavior. However, there are 3 main ways of recommendations: recommending products to customers directly, providing detailed products' information and showing other buyers' opinions or critiques. It is benefit for consumer experience without physical shopping. In general, recommender system is used to contact customers online and assist finding the right products they want effectively and directly.
If you are a seller making sales through an online marketplace in this manner, you are generally considered the retailer for purposes of such sales. However, if the marketplace operator is also providing fulfillment services, the marketplace operator will be considered the retailer if it has possession of the property at the time of sale and it can transfer ownership to the purchaser without further action by you. For additional information, please see publication 114, Consignment Sales. (Please note: If the marketplace operator has the authority to transfer ownership, but a different person, such as a fulfillment center operator, has possession of the property at the time of sale, then neither person would be a consignee, even if the two are related entities, and you would still be considered the retailer.)

The Wayfair ruling paves the way for states to reach outside of their own borders when they collect taxes. This means that a small business in Texas with just a handful of single customers in New Jersey may soon have to comply with the Garden State’s taxes — and many small business owners regard this development with concern. The fear for many of us is that the power to tax outside of state’s border will only be the beginning, and will be followed by the power to regulate businesses outside their jurisdiction.
Not least of those is Amazon, a large part of whose business consists of sales made through other merchants operating on the site. While the e-commerce giant collects sales tax on all items it sells directly, third-party purchases are taxed in just two states, Washington and Pennsylvania. Those purchases could make up a third or more of Amazon's revenue, by some estimates.
As mentioned earlier, technology and the internet allows for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week service for customers as well as enabling them to shop online at any hour of that day or night, not just when the shops are over and across the whole world. This is a huge advantage for retailers to use it and direct customers from the store to its online store. It has also opened up an opportunity for companies to only be online based rather than having an outlet or store due to the popularity and capabilities of digital marketing.
