You have probably already received an email speaking to your User Agreement, User Privacy Notice, and eBay Agreements if you're attempting to sell on eBay. We've seen users we decided to clarify asking about it.
In 2016, we began the process of realigning our legal structure to better reflect how we manage and operate our platforms.
As a result, starting 1 June 2018, eBay users residing in any country but the USA, Canada and the European Union will begin contracting with eBay Marketplaces GmbH, Helvetiastrasse 15/17, 3005 Bern, Switzerland, for their User Agreement, Billing Agreements, and any other agreements that they might have previously had with eBay International AG.
Well, whatever we really have to understand is the new e bay has started a company in Switzerland, and also all of sellers not living in the US, Canada or the European Union will receive their invoices from the brand new company (eBay market places GmbH), and their own payment will likely be out to it well. There is. It all happens automatically.
Are you currently living in Taiwan, Turkey, Norway, Switzerland or Liechtenstein?
If here you are, starting August 1st, then you may be charged on the prices you pay your invoice to eBay with VAT. Check your bills to see maybe not or if you are being charged. There won't be any result should you pay for it.
As a consequence of the change of your eBay contracting entity, eBay Marketplaces GmbH will also be your new data controller for the purposes of our User Privacy Notice. eBay Marketplaces GmbH will continue to maintain your data in accordance with our global privacy standards, known as our Binding Corporate Rules.
Thinking about the fact the GDPR (the brand new data security law) will enter only one week before this upgrade, it is sensible to believe they are connected. If you wish to find out more about this GDPR, you may go to its official site.
