Set up delivery output

Once you have mapped Avalara's tax fields to your own, you can now specify how you want to receive your delivery output. We will organize your tax tables so that we can give them to your POS system in a format that works for you. You can also change the naming and formatting choices to suit your needs.


  1. DTT Template name displays the configuration name as provided during Tell us about your system step.
  2. Select Set table names as column headers in delivery output check-box if you want to customize your output with table names as headers.

  • Enter a unique name for your folder in Base Name.

  • Select a Date Position where you want to place the date (Before or after folder base name).
  • Select an appropriate file extension for full and delta output. 
  • To apply the similar configurations to all files in your folder, turn on the Apply to files in the folder toggle.
