Miva Merchant provides online merchants, developers, web designers and web hosts with the information and technology needed to be successful in today's online selling environment. Miva Merchant product line ranges from Miva Merchant, a point-and-click online store development and management system, to Miva Script, an XML-based server-side scripting language.
Even though Miva Merchant offers cutting edge tools and resources to online sellers, calculating sales tax can often be highly manual and error-prone. Tracking rates, rules, and boundaries by going to individual state department of revenue websites is frustrating at best and works only for ecommerce merchants based in one state and selling very few products. Even then, ongoing changes at the state and federal levels make compliance incredibly difficult. For growing ecommerce merchants selling hundreds of products into multiple jurisdictions, sales tax compliance is a nightmare.
Luckily Avalara and Miva Merchant have partnered to offer Avalara AvaTax to users of the Miva Merchant platformÐ accurate down to the rooftop level. Flow through data from AvaTax Calc to AvaTax Returns ensures your sales tax returns are on-time, every time.
