Amazon (AMZN) is seeing a flurry of last-minute buying from Californians looking to avoid sales taxes that go into effect tomorrow. Channel Advisor reports seeing an 8%-10% pickup in Amazon orders from the state over the last 30 days. eBay (EBAY), on the other hand, isn't directly affected by state sales tax laws, since it isn't the merchant of record for Marketplaces transactions. Overstock.com (OSTK) has responded to California's tax efforts by cutting ties with local affiliates. (previous: I, II)
