Ecwid has teamed up with TaxJar to provide a fully automated sales tax and value-added tax (VAT) solution to online merchants.
Online merchants typically have to manually determine sales tax and VAT rates to collect at checkout, as well as keep up with new laws and regulations in every location where they sell products. This means that many merchants are left sorting through complicated spreadsheets around monthly or quarterly sales tax deadlines in order to stay compliant.
Now, however, Ecwid merchants have built-in access to automated tax calculations thanks to TaxJar’s SmartCalcs technology in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the European Union. It is important to note that additional countries will be added soon, and in late summer Ecwid merchants will also be able to connect their online stores (and other channels) to TaxJar’s automated eporting and filing technology to fully automate sales tax management.
“TaxJar is committed to providing full sales tax automation to small and medium sized businesses,” says Mark Faggiano, founder and CEO of TaxJar. “A few years ago, we set out on a mission to bring the most modern technology available to solve the sales tax pains of merchants, in a way that is both affordable and extremely easy to use. Partnering with Ecwid enables us to work with the leader for small business ecommerce in order to reach and alleviate sales tax woes for millions of online sellers globally.”
