Sales tax might be required to charge for purchases made at your Byte store depending on the city/county/state that the store is located. It is always recommended to research your local regulations to see if needed in the location where your store will be selling.
Sales tax is easy to set and can be done on an individual store basis. It is reported per order, can be viewed on the transactions page for each order, on the customer's receipt, and on a transaction export. This makes it easy to report for accounting purposes and transparent to the customer.
To apply sales tax:
- Navigate to the stores tab
- Select the store you want to set
- Select Financials
- Select Edit
- Set Sales Tax Percentage (%)
- Click Save
