Sellercloud’s newest integration is with Avalara. Avalara’s tax calculation software helps sellers overcome challenges such as infamously troublesome sales tax.
Sellercloud is ecstatic to announce a new integration with Avalara’s AvaTax to help our sellers manage their taxes, particularly their sales tax.
The process to become officially certified in sales tax compliance and integrate AvaTax was rigorous, but it’s the foundation of a closer relationship between Sellercloud and Avalara that will continue to develop.
For Sellercloud sellers, the integration means life just got a whole lot easier—they’ll have increased control and visibility over how they are charged sales tax across the US.
We’ll go over the Sellercloud-AvaTax integration and why it’ll be a major advantage when selling products across state lines.
How Will Avalara Help Sellercloud Clients With Sales Tax?
Avalara’s ‘AvaTax’ is a renowned tax compliance software, or ‘Sales Tax Management Service’ (STMS).
AvaTax helps keep sellers compliant with tax laws and automates tax accounting reducing the time and resources required to remain compliant.
The Sellercloud-AvaTax integration uses API plugins that communicate to and from Avalara and Sellercloud.
Sellers can use the integration to export orders in CSV (Comma-Separated Values) format on a regular basis from their Sellercloud account to Avalara.
Sellercloud users will have access to all AvaTax accounting features, which can be used across all Sellercloud sales channels.
Avalara will also help Sellercloud sellers with income tax, use tax, consumer use tax, and international compliance, such as customs duties, import tax, and tariffs.
