To connect your e-commerce software to Taxamo, you need to make Taxamo an interface in the purchase process. Broadly there are two approaches to doing so - either by launching the Taxamo checkout form from your e-commerce site, or by developing a custom integration to Taxamo’s API. This page raises the points to consider with each approach.
The Taxamo Checkout Form provides a customisable, pre-built checkout experience which integrates to Taxamo, Stripe, and Paypal. This is the most straight-forward approach to integrating with Taxamo.

- Allows Intermediary Plus transactions to settle VAT/GST & fees via split-payment at the time of purchase.
- Displays products, prices, taxes, total and captures buyer information needed for checkout.
- Has logic for handling B2B - B2B - Business to Business transactions. These can sometimes be VAT exclusive if a reverse charge mechanism is available. sales, region-specific requirements, Intermediary Plus requirements, subscriptions, and location conflicts.
- Has a choice of 3 display modes: as a full-page, as a popup window overlaying the current page, or embedded in an iFrame.
- Can be customised with CSS to match your site’s style.
