Charging sales tax for your products when using WP eStore plugin to sell your product(s) is very easy. There are a few ways you can use the tax feature of eStore:
- Use the built-in tax feature of eStore.
- Use the PayPal’s profile based tax feature.
- Use the table rate tax addon.
- Use the TaxCloud integration.
Using the Built-in Tax Feature of eStore
Simply enable the tax calculation option from the settings menu and specify the tax rate for your store and that’s it.
Sometimes you maybe selling product(s) where sales tax is not applicable or you may want to charge a different tax rate for a particular item. With eStore you can achieve that by overriding the tax rate for a particular product from the individual product’s tax option:
The sales tax is displayed in the shopping cart when the tax feature is enabled (the following is an example screenshot of the shopping cart with tax feature enabled)
