A number of TaxJar customers have been in a tricky situation.
Until yesterday, if you were a TaxJar customer who sold on a platform that accepted payments through PayPal – like Shopify, Bigcommerce or Etsy – and you wanted to integrate your shopping cart and your PayPal account with TaxJar, you had to make a tough choice.
Why was this a pain point for our customers?
The problem was that integrating both a shopping cart that accepts PayPal as a payment method and your individual PayPal account would create duplicate transactions and throw your sales tax reporting all out of whack.
Some TaxJar customers found themselves having to choose a favorite — their shopping cart or PayPal. You get better and more detailed data if you integrate your shopping cart with TaxJar. But many sellers sell on multiple platforms and often PayPal is their one common denominator when it comes to accepting payments.
Either way you chose, as an online seller you had to manually upload at least part of your data to TaxJar. And for a company who’s mission is to free you from sales tax pain forever, that just wouldn’t do.
Integrate your Shopping Cart AND PayPal… With No Duplicates
Great news! Our developers created and deployed a way for you to integrate both your shopping cart of choice and PayPal with no duplicate transactions.
You no longer have to choose which payment method to integrate, and you’ll never experience any duplicate transactions with TaxJar. When we see a transaction come in from a shopping cart that also accepts PayPal, we’ll always choose to pull in only the transaction from the shopping cart because that transaction tends to have more information.
This new feature will make it just that much easier for online sellers to completely automate their sales tax compliance and never worry about sales tax. Ever.
