AvaTax and AbleCommerce Integrated Features

Address Validation

Quality address data is crucial to accurate tax calculations. In order to ensure the best results, AbleCommerce implements the address validation services of AvaTax in two key points. When you add or edit Warehouses (the store origination address) within AbleCommerce, the address is validated and standardized. Also, when customers are proceeding through the checkout sequence their billing and delivery addresses are also validated and standardized.

Tax Calculation

When a customer is shopping on the site and proceeds to the checkout phase, taxes for the basket will be calculated and displayed prior to purchase. This calculation process can be repeated many times for a single basket during the shopping session. The recalculation will occur each time the checkout is initiated.

Tax Committal

When an order is finally submitted, the tax document is finalized with AvaTax. This saves the tax document to your AvaTax sales history and will show up on reports.

Tax Cancellation

If an order is canceled within the AbleCommerce merchant interface, the AvaTax service is notified if the order included any calculated taxes. This way you will not incur any tax liability for orders that were not valid.
