VirtueMart is a complete ecommerce solution that is used in conjunction with the Joomla! Content Management System that offers an extensive list of features as standard to enable shop owners to build a working shopping cart, including Joomla Plugins for payment, shipment, coupons, calculation rules, custom product fields, and more.
Even with VirtueMart's capabilities, sales tax handled within the platform can be highly manual and prone to error. Currently, users have to set up product and service sales tax rates and rules manually, editing and updating as changes occur.
Luckily, there is a solution. VirtueMart partnered with Avalara to creative a native sales tax calculation solution. It works with an extension that plugs into Joomla VirtueMart, so your buyers get an accurate calculation automatically on every shopping cart checkout. With AvaTax and VirtueMart you can have a fully automated sales tax compliance for North America and beyond.
