The Maine Transient Seller Bond is required by the State of Maine, Department of Professional and Financial Regulation. The required bond amount is $10,000. The bond states that the bondholder shall comply with all requirements of Title 32, Chapter 128; §14708, subsection 3; and make full accounting and payment of all funds coming into the Applicant’s possession while acting in said capacity.
A transient seller is any person who engages in the business of selling merchandise to consumers by means of personal contact or telephone contact, whether or not the seller is present in the State at the time of sale. In addition, the seller does not have, for the purposes of carrying on such business, any permanent place of business within the State of Maine.
A Transient Seller does not include a person who sells at public fairs, expositions or bazaars. Or, one who sells on behalf of public service organizations.
In order to be licensed, you will need to submit a completed application form, payment for the license fee of $30 and a check or credit card authorization.
