How to Setup Sales Tax

Created by Ezra Weinstein, Modified on Tue, Aug 29, 2023 at 3:15 PM by Elise Shaw

Sales tax is defined using three different methods. It can be defined per Item, per location, and/or globally in store config.

We support a wide variety of taxes including VAT and other taxes that are used internationally.

Set Up information

To modify the sales tax globally see the "Company>Settings>Taxes Options" Help Document.


To set up or modify the sales tax at a particular location, See the "Multi Store Setup" Help Document.


To set up or modify the sales tax on a specific item See the "Items" Help Document.


Sales tax defined on a location takes precedence over globally defined values in store configuration settings. Likewise, taxes defined on a particular item take precedence over values defined per location and in the store configuration.
