Batch import or automate sales tax zip codes and rates

The state I operate in charges sales tax, as does each county. I've started entering in the zip codes for my state one-by-one and it is taking forever. The nice thing is that it appears that Weebly uses the appropriate tax rate once you enter the zip code. It would be REALLY nice if I selected "state" and all zip codes and sales tax rates for that state and county populated! Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks for submitting this request - I'm happy to say this is something we're actively working on making easier for you. Keep an eye out over the next couple weeks for an update on this! 

More Product Page Display Options

Status: We're Considering It.

It could be really handy to have more granularity over what is displayed on product pages. For example, options to hide or show the price (or even have alternative text shown, e.g. "call for price"), display tax and shipping cost for that item, etc.

Shipping Taxable & Non-Taxable Option

It would be nice to have a main destination based sales tax automatic rate for the US, but also as you enter an item, be able to select it as non-taxable with a simple check box - as services such as a class need to be included in my shop and they are non-taxable. It makes it awkward to have it show up as taxable and then refund the student. Same with products - I basically loose 10 % if I setup my website with a universale no sales tax rate.

Resale Certs and turning off taxes for individuals

Status: New Idea

Can a system be created where users can make accounts on our website and us have access to payment options for them specifically i want to turn off sales tax for customers who have provided california resale certificates.. This is a huge portion of our customers and we really need this feature.

I would like to see an option to make shipping either taxable or non-taxable. I know sales tax is a tricky thing, in my case shipping should be taxed & I don't have that option.  

Shopping pages to INCLUDE VAT, but separated upon checkout only

Status: New Idea

(As background info:  We set our VAT at 0%, which in theory is not true as the 20% VAT has been included into the final price), because at the moment, when customers are on the shopping page, they see the final price per product.  Seeing the final price at the shopping page is important for customers who are not VAT registered as they do not want the VAT shock upon checkout.  


If we were to set the VAT at 20% on the weebly system, all the prices on the shopping page has to exclude VAT (most inconvenient to customers who now have to guess what their shopping total will come to).


Showing prices exclusive of VAT is helpful only to those customers who are VAT registered (as they can reclaim their VAT). BUT the majority of customers are individuals who cannot reclaim VAT.


It would be most useful to show the total price on the shopping page, which corresponds to the same price on the checkout page.  One line to subtract VAT (handy for those who can claim their VAT back), and the total again once postage was added.


That way we can print out the correct delivery note, both VAT registered and non-VAT registered customers benefit and we all  will look more professional.

Bonjour à toute la communauté Weebly, avis à tous ceux qui ont une boutique en ligne, j'ai souhaité inclure la TVA de 10 % sur les aliments et celle de 20 % sur les boissons alcoolisées comme il est stipulé dans la loi française. Mais Weebly ne propose que d'inclure la TVA par zone géographique. Si vous êtes dans le même cas que nous, votez au maximum afin que cela soit établie. (Je met le message en anglais aussi pour les untilisateurs des autres pays dans le même cas)


Hello to all the Weebly community notice to all those who have a web store, I wanted to include the 10% VAT on food and that of 20% on alcoholic beverages: it is the law in France. But Weebly offers only include VAT by region and country. If you are in the same situation as us, vote to maximum as it is established. (I put the message in french also for users of other countries in the same case)

Option for different tax rates for each product categories

Status: New Idea
by crfrc on ‎09-08-2016 11:52 PM - last edited on ‎09-24-2016 05:32 PM by Employee Moderator

Certain main product groups/categories may have different VAT tax rates. Currently I can only set one VAT tax rate, which means I have to limit my online store product selection to categories that have the same VAT rate. So basically I should be able to determine the tax rate depending on the product (most flexible) or cateogry.

Tax Option for ORIGIN BASED states

Status: New Idea
by SAPO73 on ‎04-17-2016 10:24 AM - last edited on ‎04-19-2016 01:42 PM by Community Manager

An option in the tax set-up so that you can choose if the tax applies to the buyer address or the ship-to address. Currently it is set up to the shipping address. This does not work for the 12 states that are ORIGIN based for taxes. I need to be able to apply the tax to the buyer address, not the ship-to address. This is a matter of properly collecting and recording taxes and should be a major priority so that all weebly users can choose the option they need for their particular state.

Option to apply coupons to pre-tax subtotal

Status: New Idea
by hbi on ‎05-19-2016 07:51 PM - last edited on ‎08-04-2016 09:41 AM by Community Manager

Can you all add the option to have coupons applied pre-tax? We do not consider coupons as cash tendered towards the total amount. Allowing coupons to be applied pre-tax would accommodate this style of accounting and would not result in customers being overtaxed on each transaction.

SALES TAX IS WRONG!!! Need County Sales Tax Rates for a choice please

We have zip codes now for incorporated cities,  but for us businesses living in counties that have a different tax rate than cities please we need to be able to select our county.  When Weebly updated the site to go from manual inputs for taxes (which I had and it was correct) to the zip code listing by cities for a state- the weebly system overrode manual inputs and began charging just the state tax base- NOT the extra for your county or city area.    We were not sent an email letting us know about the new update to let us know to check this to be sure the inputs for our businesses were still correct.  I recommend any changes in the future that may update or change tax features be sent in an email with links to make it easy to find and check.


Weebly had been charging the wrong sales tax for my area (and likely others).  Any audit by the state could get businesses in trouble that are relying on Weebly's currentl program to calculate tax.  That could create a liability issue for Weebly with businesses whose tax has been incorrect.   Please correct this ASAP.


thank you!

In France there are different taxes depending on the product, it would be nice to choose the tax depending on the product in addition to the place. I think all of Weebly users in France will be glade to see this possibility.


Thank you very much

Include or exclude tax on shipping cost per state.

Some states require shipping cost to be taxed, other states do not.  Weebly allows you to either charge tax on shipping or not, overall, but won't let you turn it off and on per state.

State Tax Rate on Confirmation Email

Status: New Idea
by hhscience on ‎09-29-2016 05:18 AM - last edited on ‎10-22-2016 07:44 PM by Employee Moderator

After you have updated your layout a bit, we have noticed that when clients complete their order and receive their confirmation email, it doesn't show the exact tax rate applied. And when we receive the copy of their confirmation, its difficult for us to know what the tax rate was to enter into our system. If there is a way to add this back to the confirmation email, that would be greatly appreciated. See attached sample email with no tax rate % listed.

Configure tax rates for different products

The possibility to configure tax rates for different products is a wish from me and my costumers. Today it´s not doable but hopfully in the near future!?


In Sweden we normaly have the tax rate 25%, but then we have 12% for restaurants/grosarys/arts/etc. and then we have 6% for magazines/books/taxi/etc.

I've discovered that we can only enter two decimal places for tax rates.  Many tax rates, including mine go out to three decimal places.  Can this field length be fixed to allow for additional digits?

It would be great if Weebly offered summaries for tax purposes you could download (e.g., total sales tax collected, income reports, etc.).

Adding tax in weebly store is such a long and costly process for a small business.  Please change.


I recently had to add Illinois and California sales tax.  You can't just put a flat tax rate, so you have to enter each zip code one by one.  These states combines was aruond 8,000 entries.  We had to hire an intern and it took them a week and a hald.  As a small business, that is super costly - both time and money.  


We just got word that we will have to start charging sales tax in every state and the process of adding every zip code in the USA could take up to a month.
