a lot will depend on whether or not your seller was a registered business.

a Tax Receipt showing GST paid will only apply if the seller is registered for business and registered to collect GST.

millions of sellers on ebay are not big enough businesses to register for GST

 

 

The only invoice eBay themselves issues is for Sellers who pay fees, and ebay australia is registered in Switzerland and does not pay/collect GST

You don't get a Tax Receipt from ebay.....it will come from the seller.  For the most part the receipt for payment is sufficient for Tax purposes if that is what you are wanting.  Some business sellers can/will offer you another receipt is you ask.

A lot of sellers are hobby sellers or internationally based etc.
