Here's how to set a tax rate in SimpleStore.

Added SimpleStore prior to 5/15/12 or using PayPal for checkout

  1. Click Ecommerce in the left navigation menu.


  2. Click Set tax and shipping rates.




  3. Click Edit next to Tax Rate.


  4. Enter the sales tax rate you want to apply to orders made through your website.


  5. Click Save


----------
Added SimpleStore after 5/15/12 and using Intuit Web Payment

  1. Click Ecommerce in the left navigation menu


  2. Click Tax in the top navigation menu.




  3. Click Edit to manage tax settings


  4. You can either set a default sales tax to be applied to each purchase or setup specific tax rates per state.


  5. Click Submit


Hope this helps!

One category of items in my simple store are exempt from sales tax.  I do not see an option for this in the Sales Tax settings.  Please help.

Unfortunately, Simplestore can't assign different rates to categories. For that type of configuration you would need Storefront.

Has this menu changed? I don't see Ecommerce anywhere and have been looking forever to try to figure out taxes and shipping. I am using Paypal but I don't seem to have a choice on that. If I click on Intuit Web Payment I just get an error that I need to add the Simple Store. But I already have the Simple Store. This is becoming very frustrating!

OK, everything is copied to sugarbellesoycandles.homestead.com. How do I link the store up to this new site so it can be added in?

Ok, I have it added now.  You will edit the new site and use the Ecoommerce tab to add products. I have left the old version on the site so that if you want to use it as reference when adding products.  We will need to remove that one when you are ready, to avoid extra billing. 

Let us know when you want the old version removed from the account.

Thanks

You have MADE MY DAY! Thank you so much. You can delete the old version - I have all my products saved offline. Do we need to re-link the domain sugarbellecandles still?

Yes.  You can change the site association anytime.

It might take up to 30 minutes for the association to change.

Thanks
