Set up your company profile for online marketplace transactions

This article applies to:AvaTax

Some states require online marketplaces, such as Amazon, Etsy, and Ebay, to collect sales tax for you, while other states require your company to do the collection and payment work. If the marketplace you sell through collects and pays tax for you, set up a special rule so that tax isn't reported twice on those transactions.

Tip icon

If you're using an Extractor to sync one or more of your online marketplaces with our platform, you don't need to follow these steps. Extractor adds each marketplace to Avalara when you set it up, and assigns the correct location codes to the transactions you import with your extractor.

Steps

  1. Add an online marketplace to your company profile
    Create a company location for each online marketplace your company uses if your business application doesn't share that information with AvaTax.
  2. Create a custom rule to exclude online marketplace transactions
    Create rules that apply to transactions made through online marketplaces that collect and pay tax on your behalf.
  3. Import transactions
    Use our template to import your transaction data to AvaTax.
