When are bonanza going to allow uk buyers to purchase from the site again?

I have been selling on Bonanza for five years. Currently, when my UK buyers (I am based and only sell within the UK) try to purchase from my booth, they receive the following message: Oops! Orders to this location can not currently be processed.

Bonanza have said this is while they set about complying with new VAT/TAX regulations but so far no date as to when they expect to complete their process.

Hello BargainMonster

Thanks for reaching out to the Community help pages.

Due to the recent changes in international tax (VAT) collection requirements, Bonanza has temporarily suspended purchases from buyers in the EU, UK, and Puerto Rico.

We are working on implementing the necessary requirements so that we can restore access for all users as quickly as possible. As with any tax, this involves many moving parts, countries, and laws.
We are unable to provide the exact time this will be resolved but we are working as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to email our award-winning support team if we can be of further assistance!

Thank you!
Kind Regards

Yes, you can set up your booth to sell only to the UK. When you have your booth, you will point to Selling and click on Booth Settings, then the Payments & Purchases tab. You will see a buyer restriction to check “Only sell to buyers in my own country”.

Should I post a comment or an answer?

You can only post one answer, so make it count. Maybe your reply is more fitting as a comment instead?

Post a comment for:

  • "Thanks," "Me too," "I agree," or "Works for me" types of replies
