Representing Sellers For Online Marketplaces
Selling your product via online marketplaces can be very lucrative. However, it can also be complicated and frustrating as you attempt to navigate the legal, financial and technical hurdles involved with seeking approval for selling your products, selling your account and more.
At AEGIS Law, our lawyers have more than 25 years of experience representing small-business owners in Florida, throughout the United States and in numerous countries abroad. We understand the benefits and drawbacks of selling your products on online marketplace giants like Amazon, Walmart.com and eBay. We have the experience and knowledge to help protect your best interests and financial bottom line.
Unique Experience In The Complexities Of Online Marketplaces
We have represented hundreds of companies in the sale of their businesses, including their online accounts. We understand noncompetition agreements, international requirements and the distinct properties of intellectual property, including how to transfer such assets to buyers and key considerations for sellers.
Because you do not own your Amazon account but you own the profits from it, how can you sell it? We can assist in structuring a unique IP transfer transaction that can ensure for a smooth transition.
Skilled Guidance Through A Wide Array Of Services
Our attorneys provide the experience and resources you need. We advise clients on:
- Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) – Will you or will Amazon fulfill your products? If you own your inventory, you are selling the right for someone else to sell your brand.
- Registering for Amazon FBA – While the registration process is relatively straightforward, some sellers may need to meet challenging requirements. We can assist.
- Working with complex technologies – Amazon’s technologies or software (API) enable e-commerce businesses to perform. We help facilitate this process.
- Sales tax obligations – Small-business owners may face obstacles in meeting sales tax obligations when selling their products nationally. We advise on what to expect.
We also provide guidance on other potential complications. For example, companies with first-page status on Amazon can sell for a high price. However, transferring ownership of these companies can be challenging. We know how to work with Amazon to achieve transaction efficiently.
