How Do I Add Tax to my Shift4Shop Store?
Your Shift4Shop store includes a built-in Tax Manager that allows you to specify tax rules based on the order's "Ship to" zip code.
To add tax specifications to your store, log into Online Store Manager and proceed with the following steps:
If you have never set up taxes on the store before, you will see two buttons. One marked "Automated Tax Setup" and one labeled "Manual Tax Setup" For the purposes of this article, select the Manual Tax Setup option.
Tip: If these fields are left blank, then the tax rate will apply to the entire region you have selected for the Country and State fields.
If you have a large amount of zip code ranges to enter, you may want to consider having Shift4Shop's myWebMaster Services help you out. Please click here for more information.

Once you have inserted the tax, you will also see an option where you can enter a Tax Code.
This option would be applicable only if you need to set up a different tax rates on a per product basis. For example, in some areas food items are taxed differently than material goods. For these situations, you would create tax codes which can then be applied to your products (Using the product's Advanced Tab).
Removing Tax Ranges
If you'd like to remove a tax range, look towards the far right of the added range and click on its "Action >Delete" button.
