In the two years(?) that they have supposedly taken pictures of the deliveries, I’ve only gotten it ONCE.
Yes, I’m home 95% of the time they deliver, but they don’t know that. Or is it because they see I have a (had a Ring Doorbell, then upgraded to a) Nest Doorbell, so they don’t bother??
eBay announced in October it would begin collecting sales tax in 4 states in 2019 due to new laws that extend the tax collection obligation to marketplaces (known as Marketplace Facilitator laws). Note that online
Based on applicable tax laws, eBay will calculate, collect, and remit sales tax on behalf of sellers for items shipped to customers in the following states:
Depending on your account, when you checkout you may be taken to the address and shipping options screens before being taken to the payment selection page. On that page, under the list of credit/debit cards saved your account, you’ll see a checkbox that says “Your available balance: Use your $0.00 Gift card balance” (I don’t remember if you can enter a promotional balance or code here, but you could try). If you don’t want to use the credit, you uncheck the box/don’t enter any codes.
At the final checkout page, all accounts will have a payment method section on the left that allows you to deselect/change or apply any gift card balance on your account or add a promotion code.
Codes are not credits, meaning codes are not automatically applied to your account… you have to manually enter them. Since the $15 credit from this promo is issued in the form of a code, you should be able to apply it to any order at will (the code is restricted to items “sold by Amazon .com” or “sold by Amazon Digital Services LLC”). So yes, you’ll have the opportunity to apply codes during checkout and/or on the final payment screen.
Caveat: if you “click the button to add the coupon to your account,” you’ll no longer be able to enter the code so the $15 will be automatically applied to your order unless you deselect it on the payment and/or final checkout page as described above.
PayPal is great as long as you’re not a seller. If you’re a seller with a linked bank account, they don’t think twice about raiding your account - which, since they are not a bank and are not subject to banking regulations, means you give them pretty much free license to do whatever they please with your account by accepting the user agreement.
Learn from my experience - if you have a linked account, keep only the bare minimum in the account. Otherwise you may find your funds suddenly locked up for ~180 days while they “investigate” a completely false claim from a buyer (which you know the buyer will ultimately win, 'cuz that’s how PayPal rolls).
