Easy Tax Application in WP e-Commerce? (3 posts)

    Is there an easy way to add tax rates to items in e-Commerce? Currently, it looks like the only way to do that is to go in and manually input tax rates for each area we would be collecting from. Or am I missing something?

    I think my wording may have been misleading, so I'm clarifying. Looking to add tax to shopping cart, not individual items.

    In WP Online Store you set the tax rate for the area where you want tax charged and then for each product you select if it is taxable or not. If the product is classified as taxable then tax is added to the product when in the shopping cart based upon the customers address. IE. if you are in Florida and your customer is in Florida then they would be charged tax for Florida. If they are not in Florida then they would not be charged tax. You can set up multiple tax zones if you charge different tax for different locations. Basically I think you are right by your first statement, but I do not quite get what you mean by your second statement - you have to assess tax on a per item basis as not all items can be taxable. There is an option within the store to display the product price including tax on the product page, or just display the additional tax during checkout.
