SoftSlate Commerce and AvaTax: Automated Sales Tax Calculation for Your Business

Platform: softslate commerce

Today's ecommerce seller can harness the power of the web to meet and exceed rising demand for online products and services, by utilizing SoftSlate Commerce's effective ecommerce tools.

Yet for many SoftSlate Commerce users, calculating sales tax remains a manual and error-prone process. Tracking rates, rules, and boundaries by going to individual state department of revenue websites works for ecommerce merchants as long as they're based in one state and selling very few products. And even then, ongoing changes at the state and federal levels make compliance incredibly difficult.

The AvaTax integration within SoftSlate Commerce offers the following functions and benefits:

An AvaTax tab for each order in the SoftSlate Commerce Administrator, allowing admins to manually view, save, post, commit and cancel transactions. Settings to control if transactions should be Saved or Committed during checkout, and Saved or Committed upon order completion.

The option to define each product's AvaTax tax code, and the option to define each customer's tax exempt number. Settings to define which specific countries and states should be sent to AvaTax for tax calculation. A setting to define which countries should be sent to AvaTax for address validation. Shipping and discount handling including applying discounts to each individual line item as it is sent to Avalara, so the correct tax is computed when different items have different tax rates.
