How do I set the tax rate for an Order?

To set the tax rate for an Order:

  1. Navigate to your Order (or create a new Order)
  2. Add the tax rate you wish to apply to the form by completing the % text box next to the tax total.

  3. Save the order.

How do I add Tax to an Order?

Tax can be added as part of the calculated total for the Order by setting the Tax Rate for the Order or entering the total tax amount in the text box (as shown below).

Tax is calculated on the Item Total plus Shipping minus any Discount applied.

How do I add tax for an Order Line Item?

The total tax amount for the Order is automatically proportioned to each Order Line Item within it. This is so that tax amounts can be factored into your product-level profitability calculations.

Proportioning tax is calculated based on the total cost of each item in the order.

An order contains three items:

  • Blue Cushion = $10
  • Red Cushion = $30
  • Green Cushion = $100

The total tax calculated for the order is $10.

As the Green Cushion’s total price represents 71% of the total item price of the order, the proportional tax is calculated as 71% of $10, which is $7.14.
