Never heard of those sites. I would think in their info pages they would mention if a license is necessary. If they are like eBay then I would say no. But their website should have an area listing all requirements you have to meet as a seller.

I don't know about the sites you mentioned, but for Etsy, Made It Myself or eBay, you will not need a license at this time. That could change anytime though.

Good Luck with your crafting business.

A business license? Or a resale tax #? If a resale tax #, then check with your state. My state is Texas and require such to report taxes.


Online would be the best place for your state to find you doing business without one if they require it.
