How do I use my PayPal Tax Settings?

If you want to charge tax to customers in your state only OR if you want to charge different tax rates depending on the customer location, we suggest using your PayPal Tax Settings option.  Here are step-by-step instructions:

1. Login to your store headquarters

2. Navigate to “Store” -> “Settings”


3. Scroll down the page  to the “PayPal Checkout” section and select “Use my PayPal tax settings”

9. Follow the PayPal instructions, repeat to setup more than one location

Please Note: If you are using Google Checkout and/or PayPal Express, your PayPal Tax settings will not be applied when a customer makes a purchase via PayPal Express.  We highly reccommend deleting all Google Checkout and PayPal Express information on your store settings page.  Your customers will still be able to pay with PayPal or any major credit card.
