Calling out all the PayPal e-Commerce gurus add to cart and sale tax JPcinemamaster msg:4145950 9:54 pm on Jun 2, 2010 (gmt 0) Hello, I am new at PayPal "add to cart" button and I was wondering if you guys can help me with this: Let's say I sell a T-shirt online and it's 10 dollars and my state sale tax is 6% but what if the buyer is from another state. Do I charge every buyer equally or how do I set it up PayPal to do this automatically? (every time you create an 'add to cart' button, it asks you to put the sale tax percentage. Thank you

Those are overrides for your profile sales tax settings. To create your default tax settings go into PROFILE then under SELLING PREFERENCES click the SALES TAX link and that's where you create your sales tax settings. JPcinemamaster msg:4145967 10:37 pm on Jun 2, 2010 (gmt 0)
thank you But when I am creating the button, should I just leave the sale tax field blank since it's already set up in my sale tax settings? incrediBILL msg:4145978 11:04 pm on Jun 2, 2010 (gmt 0)
Yes. That sales tax you're setting per button is an override of the default in the profile. For instance you would use that per button setting if you had a specific product taxed at 10% for example, while everything else in your store uses the default 8% tax.

I'll try that and if I need more help I'll come back, thank you very much! JPcinemamaster msg:4152567 9:14 pm on Jun 14, 2010 (gmt 0)
Hello, yes. My sale tax is currently empty and here in CT is 6%. Should I just add 6% and that will work for it all?
