How do I ensure correct sales tax collection for my NY-based online store?

I have my resale license in NY. I am new to Shopify but I have an Etsy store. I know that Etsy collects the sales tax and remits it for their sellers. I have put my license number under sales tax collection. How do I know it is collecting the right amount of money? Am I supposed to put the percent somewhere. I have to file my first quarterly taxes now, for the first time. Since I don't have many sales I just looked at them and I see no purchases from NY. And when I run my taxes report no data is returned. So I have to file a $0 return.

 

But in the future when I get sales from NY where do I get the data I need. Is it in the tax report?

I use the finance summary and export both total sales and sales tax reports.
