The eStore Table Rate Tax by Item Types addon allows you to charge tax in the shopping cart based on the user’s country and type of items.
Installing the eStore Table Rate Tax by Item Types Addon
You can install this addon the same way you install any WordPress plugin:
- Go to the “Add New” plugins screen in your WordPress admin area
- Click the “upload” tab
- Browse for the addon file (estore-table-rate-tax-by-item-types.zip)
- Click “Install Now” and then activate the plugin
Using this Addon
When this addon is active, You can easily configure rates that will be used to apply tax in the shopping cart based on the customer’s country.
To access the addon settings click on the “Table Rate Tax” sub-menu under the WP eStore plugin menu.
To add a new tax zone you need to select a country, type of product and specify a tax rate for it (For example: 20).
Click the “Save” button which will add the zone.
If you do not wish to configure a rate for every country you can specify a flat rate (For example: 15). By default it is set to 0.
How Does It Work
Lets say, a customer is browsing your website from Denmark. When that user adds a digital product to the shopping cart a 25% tax/VAT will be automatically applied.
The location of the user is determined based on the IP address. But they can also manually select their country (the addon will calculate the tax accordingly).
If the user is from a zone that you haven’t configured (Example: USA) a 15% tax will be automatically applied.
Tax will be applied the same way for physical products.
