Elias here with Shopify Support. Thank you for this inquiry.
Alternatively, there are a couple of third-party apps that can also help with capturing VAT numbers or create invoices. I’ve handpicked a couple for you to look at:
If you need any assistance with these apps, you can always reach out to the developers directly through the contact information found in the Support section of the app’s page.
I hope this provides a couple of options for you to look into. If you have any other questions on this topic, don’t hesitate to let me know in this thread.
Thank you for this explanation.
I just tried to show VAT prices on my product pages with that tutorial you linked to, but it looks different in my code. I think it might be due to two things, possibly:
- I have the Supply theme
- I have variants (e.g. ring sizes)
What are my options then of displaying VAT to the right customers? I'm in Sweden and want to charge VAT to EU but not to other countries. Since I just set up my website I'm trying to fix it by myself instead of paying for an app.
Thank you for reaching out and I appreciate you trying to customize the theme on your own. The advanced tutorial for showing VAT prices on your products will vary slightly as the difference lies in the template of the theme you’re working on.
That said, I’m not sure if you will be able to detect your customers’ location and show both VAT and non-VAT prices to your customers without using an app. Our guide for tax overrides and exemption recommends using something like Sufio or Digital Takeout: Easy Invoicing to provide your EU customers with VAT compliant invoices. Determining your customers’ location can be accomplished by using a third-party app that does Geolocation. However, if you prefer not to use an app, then you’re likely looking at a significant amount of custom coding to carry this out.
If you have any more questions on this topic, feel free to reply to this thread and I’ll be happy to help.
Thanks for mentioning Sufio in your reply, as well as our guide for capturing VAT numbers!
If you or Claire ever have any questions about Sufio, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll be glad to help :)
Have a great day,
I'm also having the same problem, I set my store to show the prices inclusive of all taxes, but I couldn't find a way to breakdown the product's displayed price at the checkout page.
For example, I'm selling a product for $100 (All tax included), the displayed price on the product's page is $100, and I want the costumers to see in the checkout: Product price: $80 - Taxes (20%): $20 = Total: $100
We collect taxes, our prices are inclusive but for using this document for exporting and DDP its important that we can show the break down.
So that the local authorities charge us accordingly as well.
