Sales tax settings in Ecwid

As part of your website development, you have likely already set your tax preferences for web sales. Tax collection and remittance is an unavoidable part of running a business. Some retailers prefer to add any relevant sales tax at checkout, while others do not (in some countries it is also required that sales tax be included in the displayed price, for example). When listing on marketplaces, prices are considered tax-inclusive. For this reason, in some cases, it is important to check your tax settings before listing your products to ensure you are sending accurate pricing and not duplicating tax remittance.


Most retailers (particularly in the US) have their tax preferences set to NOT display prices inclusive of tax, rather add tax at checkout. In this case, it is important to have your website tax settings configured correctly to ensure Codisto is sending the correct pricing. Retailers should always enter product pricing the same way that you'd like to display pricing on site. Tax settings should then be configured accordingly.


*Note* Tax settings are applied storewide meaning you must enter prices inclusive or exclusive of sales tax for your entire catalog.


Ecwid does not offer functionality for including or excluding tax from your product display prices. Tax is always added at checkout. There are two ways to manage taxes in an Ecwid store:

  • Automatic taxes. They are available for merchants in the USA, the EU, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Automatic taxes provide up-to-date standard rates across the store and can be enabled in one button click.
  • Manual taxes. If automatic taxes are not available for your country or you sell differently taxed products, you can configure taxes manually.
