This is the same meetup announced earlier except we’re going to replicate it in San Francisco. Details:

Get Ready, eBay Sellers: Tax Laws Have Changed!

Did you know that Paypal is going to be sending 1099k forms to certain eBay sellers this year? Do you know what a 1099k form is?

New tax laws this year are affecting eBay sellers. If you’re not
careful, you could be seeing an increase in what you have to pay out.
But, it doesn’t have to be that way! Come learn about these changes and
get tips for getting your taxes prepared with as little hassle as
possible.

Laura and Ryan from Outright will be presenting what you need to know
about how to get your taxes done. This session is intended for eBay
sellers who want the basics without all the jargon – it’s not intended
for advanced tax professionals.

This is our first San Francisco session. I hope we get a good turnout
and can do regular SF meetups. NOTE: seating is limited so sign up
early. Based on the number of attendees we’ll determine if we need a
bigger venue moving forward.

Cheers, Chris

Hi everyone,

I’ve had many people request this meetup so I’m looking forward to it. It will be an online webinar to make it as easy as possible for people to participate.

Billboards is an eBay Apps Center application from my company, Page Mage. It lets you create your own unique listing template for more professional looking listings. You’ll look more credible and sell more. It also lets you advertise to prospective buyers across all your listings with the click of one button. That means you can promote special offers, cross-sell items, communicate policies and much more.

This webinar will walk you through a general overview of the product and talk specifically about things you can do for the holidays. You can see more about the product at: http://pagemage.com

And feel free to ask me any questions in advance: chris@pagemage.com

Cheers,

Chris
