Online marketplace GunBroker.com adds support for TaxCloud to its ever-growing list of sellers tools.
GunBroker.com is the world’s largest online marketplace for firearms and related items. State tax calculation and recording services are now available for sellers on the platform following the Georgia-based operation’s integration with TaxCloud.
“TaxCloud is now available within the website, which calculates and records state taxes,” explains a member of the marketplace’s team, speaking from their headquarters in Atlanta. “Information on what the service can do for your business can be found on the TaxCloud website,” they add.
TaxCloud is marketed as the web’s most affordable sales tax compliance services around. The company offers businesses of all shapes and sizes access to industry-leading tax data, automated filing options, and more.
Sellers on the marketplace are now set to be significantly aided by the platform’s integration with TaxCloud. By using the service, their taxes will be calculated at the point of checkout, based on a buyer’s ship-to address.
“Once a payment has been marked as received, the taxes will be captured in TaxCloud,” explains the company’s representative. “If an order is canceled, the taxes will be voided,” they go on, “and all orders must be correctly defined within MyGunBroker for tax processing to occur correctly.”
A range of core services allows users to take advantage of TaxCloud’s tax calculation and reports with pricing scales to fit their needs. Options include packages for any one or more of several services, including tax calculation, filing and remittance, indemnification, and state notice responses.
Offering the lowest prices industry-wide, TaxCloud users pay based on usage.
Getting started with GunBroker.com and TaxCloud
To benefit from GunBroker.com’s recent integration with TaxCloud, sellers on the marketplace must sign up for an account with the sales tax compliance service.
Once granted a production-ready API key, users must log in to their MyGunBroker account. TaxCloud settings can then be found within the Listing Tools portion of the MyGunBroker Toolbox. “TaxCloud does require a capture to be performed before promoting an account to production level,” adds GunBroker.com’s representative.
A test capture, they further explain, can be performed via the marketplace’s sandbox website. “Once a test capture has been performed, it’s recommended that any TaxCloud API information is deleted from the sandbox,” they add, “and used exclusively for a live account’s production listings.”
One up and running, sellers’ listings will no longer ask for tax rates as all taxes will be calculated in TaxCloud. Instead, choices for collecting taxes will be simply, ‘Yes, I collect taxes,’ and, ‘No, I do not collect taxes.’
