Set Up Avalara AvaTax for BigCommerce

Setting up AvaTax to automate tax calculations for your business involves four essential milestones, plus a fifth if you're setting up Returns. Each milestone links to detailed step-by-step instructions to help you successfully complete each one.

  1. Create a basic company profile.
    If you haven't already, or if you want to add an additional company, start by telling us a little about your company and where you're registered to collect and pay tax.
  2. Get your license key.
    Get your transactions flowing to AvaTax for automated tax calculation. Skip this step if you aren't connecting a business application or system to AvaTax. 
  3. Fine tune your company profile
    Adjust product taxability and learn about options for exempting customers.
  4. Test your setup. 
    Preview tax calculations and make sure the connection is working.
  5. Set up Returns.
    Complete this milestone only if you purchased Returns.

For customers with AvaTax sandbox accounts: After you set up and test your account, contact your implementation specialist or the Avalara Customer Center for help copying your setup to your production account.
