Do I need to add a separate line for freight in a transaction import?


You are filling out a transaction import template to import transactions into the Admin Console and you want to know if you need to list shipping or freight charges as a separate line.

  • Yes. To have an item taxed as freight you have to list it on its own row in the import template and mark it as freight with a freight tax code.


Note: If you mapped your freight item in the Admin Console you only have to list your freight item code. A tax code will be pulled in from item mapping when you use an item mapped in the Admin Console (under Organization > Items).
