Sales Tax

Recommended Posts

After setting up my online store I realize there is not an automated sales tax calculation - Do we really have to input thousands of tax rates and update them all manually? There are over 2,500 zip codes in CA alone. There is no way that is possible for any small online business. And there isn't an extension to do it for you. How is anyone selling anything using this platform? Please tell me I am missing something.

You're not missing anything. It's a completely manual process right now. Some previous related threads on the subject of tax are:

I am with you! 2,500 zip codes/ rates! It has taken me over a week to get all the California zip codes/ rates into squarespace.  I was 25 zip codes away from finishing, i accidentally hit REMOVE!  Squarespace gave me no warning message box if this is what i really wanted to do. They should provide a warning before all your data is removed! I am soo frustrated!
