No, our Website Builder shopping cart does not know the sales tax you should charge for your online store. It is up to you to decide if you should charge any sales tax and how much that sales tax should be. Our system offers you a way to manually set up taxes based on country, state, or province. You may need to do some research on sales tax to decide what you need to do. SBA.gov is a good resource if you are located within the US.If you do need to set up any taxes, you will need to first set up a shipping zone in our system: How do I set up shipping zones?

Our Website Builder shopping cart allows you to manually set up taxes for any country. Then our system will automatically charge customers these taxes based on their location.To add taxes for different countries: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Select "My Websites" from the left-side menu bar. Click on the "Edit Site" button next to the website builder you want to use. Click on the "Shopping Cart" (the one that looks like a cart) on the left-hand tool bar. Before adding tax information, you must add shipping zones that include the countries you want to set the tax for. After you have added the shipping zones, click the "Tax" tab and you should see the countries that you added as shipping zones listed. Click on the country to set the tax rate. If the country you have selected has different states or provinces, our system will also allow you to set different taxes for each. Enter the regional tax for your state or province and then use the drop down to either add it to the country tax, use it instead of the country tax, or compound it on top of the country tax. *See examples below. Click the "Save" button on the top left on the screen to finalize your changes. *Tax examples: Add to country tax: If country tax is 5% and regional tax is 2%, total tax would be 7%. On an order of $100, customer would pay $7 tax. Instead of country tax: If country tax is 5% and regional tax is 2%, tax would be 2%. On an order of $100, customer would pay $2 tax. Compounded on top of country tax: If country tax is 5% and regional tax is 2%, on an order of $100 the customer would pay $5 for country tax. Then the regional tax would be based on the order total + country tax, which is $105 in this example. 2% of $105 is an additional $2.10 in tax, resulting in a total of $7.10 in taxes for the order.
