Virtuemart for Joomla

Virturemart and AvaTax: Automated Sales Tax Calculation for Your Business

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, integrated within the software to provide a fully automated sales tax compliance for North America and beyond.


Avalara AvaTax for Virtuemart for Joomla pricing is based on an initial activation fee and the annual volume of transactions. Volume-based transaction plans work like cell phone minutes. Higher volumes cost less per transaction. Plans are available to suit businesses of all sizes.
