Why don’t you need a business license to sell your own products on Ebay?

I understand why you wouldn’t need one for selling personal items as if it was an international yard sale. But, if you have an Ebay store and are selling craft products made from home like a part-time home business (i.e. handmade clothing, artwork, artisan jewelry)….why would a license not be needed? I only heard that a business license was not needed with Ebay, so I may be wrong. But, if this is true, does anyone know why a license is exempt when going through Ebay? I know you still have to claim it as extra income on your taxes. But, I want to make sure I cover my grounds when it comes to being legal with small business and Ebay.
