Automated Tax Rates

We currently support automated taxes for the US, EU, and Canada. Our automated tax rates are based on the location of the user/learner who will receive the course, and include country, state/province, and city taxes.

To set up Automatic Tax Rates - Select the tax location by clicking the plus (+) to the right of the box.  The list contains economic zones (Canada, the EU & USA) that eCommerce can automatically calculate tax for when processing a customer purchase made by Credit Card or PayPal

Manual Tax Rates

Manual tax rates can be setup at a variety of different levels, which are all capable of stacking together. This allows even city level taxes to be setup in a straightforward fashion. Manual tax rates are also based on the location of the user/learner who will receive the course.
