The largest eBay online auction will open for Russian sellers as early as September 2014. From now on, legal entities - individual entrepreneurs and other organizational forms will be able to legally sell through eBay. The seller will be able to choose different options: trade only within Russia and / or abroad too. The price can be set both in rubles (for a domestic buyer), and in dollars or euros.
Among the methods of delivery abroad and within Russia will be mail and several courier services. For cases when the buyer and the seller are in the same city, the option of self-delivery is provided.
In order to sell, you will first need to create an account on PayPal, and only then on eBay. It will be possible to keep money in several different currencies on the accounts of the payment system. A legal entity will be able to withdraw money from a PayPal account to a bank account.
When selling overseas, eBay will provide all VAT refund documents. "Reporting documentation is a fundamentally new piece of work, something that eBay has never had. This is one of the most difficult places in all the work of" opening "an auction for a Russian seller," Dolgov admits. According to him, Russian stores are already showing interest in eBay as a trading platform.
