    has anyone sold games via Amazon Marketplace?
    As far as I can see they don't allow software downloads, so I'd have to cut a CD and physically mail it. Is there any way round this?

    the US site says the seller has to handle all taxes, but the UK site says they add VAT for you. If I sell from the UK to the US, do I need to add on US sales tax as well?

    Any advice would be welcome.

    Thanks. I've done that, but don't know if they'll reply.

    If they don't then that is a bad sign.
