Avalara, a provider of on-demand, web-based sales tax compliance services, has announced the launch of TaxRegions Online for merchants with a ProStores web store. ProStores, an eBay Company, enables small- and medium-sized businesses to establish ecommerce sites. This new service gives ProStores merchants access to the sales tax rates they need on a state-by-state basis.
With TaxRegions Online, ProStores merchants log on to the TaxRegions Online/ProStores storefront, www.taxregionsonline.com, where they can specify the states into which they sell, then purchase all of the up-to-the-minute sales tax rates they need. All corresponding sales tax rates are then uploaded into the merchant's store for use during the shopper's checkout process.
ProStores allows storeowners to create full-featured online storefronts, customized with their own branding and domain name, and offers merchants inventory management capabilities, shopping-cart functionality, search engine optimization tools, and integration with the eBay marketplace.
