For those of you who use Dropified and Spocket

I am considering using either Dropified or Spocket to dropship my orders. If I use Dropified or Spocket, how do I set up the sales tax if I were to use U.S. dropshippers?

Same rules apply if you were selling the product from your home or business location.


Example:

I live in California.  Sales tax where I live are 8.75%

 

I would go to SETTINGS --> TAXES and add the tax rate there 

 

Then, in our particular case, if someone purchases in California and it is shipped to California, we would owe the Sales Tax.  If outside of California, we wouldn't owe taxes.  Be sure to lookup local tax rates in your city or state.  In some states, you do not need a resale permit (ie: tax license) and others you do.

 

In each of those vendors, I believe there is a setting for this to use Shopify rates. 

 

Hope this helps.
