RCP has partnered with Avalara to bring a simple end-to-end solution for managing tax collection and preparation. Avalara does the hard work to make sure your business stays compliant. This certified Avalara integration with Restrict Content Pro will allow you to automatically collect the appropriate taxes during registration and for each subsequent subscription payment.
How much does Avalara cost?
Our plugin is free and the Avalara membership will vary based on your volume. Most sites can expect to pay somewhere between $50/year and $200/year.
We wanted to integrate with a service that provides both US and European tax resolution. Avalara does both and has been a leader in the industry for many years.
You will first want to download the RCP-AvaTax Pro add-on from your iThemes Member Panel.
Once you have uploaded the add-on to your site, you will then go to Restrict > AvaTax and enter the appropriate information under the General and Address tabs.
Can’t I just track taxes manually?
There are plugins out there for tracking taxes manually, but we’ve always felt these are poor solutions for eCommerce. Tax rules and regulations change so often that it would be impossible for you to keep track of everything and ensure that you remain compliant. Why spend a bunch of time reading up on tax laws? Avalara will do that for you so you can spend time running your business.
