Tax Configuration

 

You can use this interface to set tax rates for states and countries. Although tax as it concerns e-commerce transactions is still an evolving issue, most states and countries have developed policies mandating tax in one form or another. Check with your local Chamber of Commerce for more information. Follow the instructions below to set tax rates.

Setting a Tax Rate
  1. Open your web store's Merchant Tools in a browser. Click on the Store Settings link and select Tax.


  2. Select a state or country from the drop-down list of supported states and countries. Enter the appropriate tax rate in the field to the right of the drop-down, then click the Submit button to set the tax rate. If the country or state you need to set tax for is not listed in one of the drop-down menus, you can add them through Geographical Settings.
    Note: tax rates should be entered as numbers only, without a %.


To Remove a Tax Rate
  1. Open your web store's Merchant Tools in a browser. Click on the Store Settings link and select Tax.


  2. The states and countries that currently have set tax rates will be listed under Tax Settings. Click the Delete button next to a country or state to set its tax rate to 0.


Modifying a Tax Rate
  1. Open your web store's Merchant Tools in a browser. Click on the Store Settings link and select Tax.


  2. The states and countries that currently have set tax rates will be listed under Tax Settings. To modify a tax rate, change the rate displayed to the right of each country or state name, then click the Submit button.
