How should my taxes be setup when using the BigCommerce Integration?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • BigCommerce Integration 

Answer

When setting up the BigCommerce integration it is important to set up your taxes so that they match across Vend and BigCommerce to ensure your prices sync correctly and you are collecting the correct tax on both Vend and BigCommerce. If you are unsure what the taxes are that you should be charging, please reach out to your accountant to make sure you are charging the correct taxes for the country that you are operating in.

It is important to note that when a BigCommerce order comes through to Vend, the Vend account default tax name (not the outlet default) is recorded on the sale. This is the tax set when your store was originally set up.

The sale will be recorded under the account default tax name regardless of the actual tax charged on BigCommerce.

Tax Inclusive

If your Vend account is set up as a tax-inclusive store in Vend, you need to make sure your BigCommerce account is set up as tax inclusive as well. You will need to select Yes, I will enter prices inclusive of tax. For further instructions on the set up on BigCommerce please have a look here: BigCommerce Tax Overview

Tax Exclusive

If your Vend account is set up as a tax-exclusive store in Vend, you need to make sure your BigCommerce account is set up as tax exclusive as well. You will need to select No, I will enter prices exclusive of tax. For further instructions on the set up on BigCommerce please have a look here: BigCommerce Tax Overview
