How to add tax to your invoices

If an order is imported into your Zenstores account and it already has a tax value, like an eBay product, then Zenstores will automatically use that value on your invoices. If on the other hand your imported products don't have a tax value, like Amazon products, then we have to set up our own tax rates. Luckily we have a video guide for this specific situation below.

4. You will need to have a separate tax rate for each country you sell to, as Zenstores automatically detects the country for new orders and looks up the relevant tax rate and calculates the tax based on the total order price. 

Luckily this is easy, once you have added your first tax rate you will be returned to your Zenstores account company page and from there you can simply repeat the previous process for each country you sell to.
