The Marketplaces for america's Small Sellers
As more Americans utilize online shopping options, e-commerce marketplaces are helping connect consumers with retailers and internet enabled entrepreneurs to drive sales domestically and around the globe. The Coalition to Protect America’s Small Sellers provides a forum to educate policymakers in Washington DC, and in our nation's state capitols, in order to create a tailored regulatory policy for these platforms.
Requiring disclosures of personally identifiable information disadvantages small sellers
Millions of small businesses, entrepreneurs, and casual sellers utilize online marketplaces to reach new markets or connect with customers down the street and across the globe. Requiring the disclosure of personally identifiable information of individual sellers could have potentially unintended and dangerous consequences for sellers, especially minority- and women-owned businesses. A one size fits all disclosure requirement favors big-box retailers who have a local store or an established e-commerce presence, and harms the small sellers who have thrived developing their online businesses.
