How do I configure VAT on Ecwid?

Consult a tax specialist to learn about your tax obligations and whether you're required to charge VAT.
  1. On your Ecwid admin panel, go to Settings → Taxes
  2. Under “Manual,” click “Manage Tax Rates”
  3. Click “Add New Tax” on the top left-hand side of the page
  4. Enter a tax name (VAT)
  5. Check “Enabled by default for all products.” (you can go through your product catalog and manually enter which products are VAT exempt).
  6. Under Tax Applies To, select “Subtotal + Shipping.”
  7. Check whether or not you want to include tax in product prices.
  8. Under Zones Defined By, select “Shipping Address.”
  9. Save changes and click “Manage Shipping Zones.” Here you'll have to enter the European Union as a zone if you haven't already.
  10. Click “Add New Zone,” name it European Union, and check all EU member states.
  11. Back in taxes, select EU as your shipping zone and enter your tax rate (this depends on the country in which you're registered as a VAT payer).



Starting October 1st 2017, Printful will charge 21% VAT for orders fulfilled in Europe with a shipping address in the EU.
