Stripe Payment Gateway - Tax

Prior to this enhancement, the customers had to find other ways of collecting the taxes for transactions made via CSX EXE as the payments processed through Stripe did not include the sales tax amount.​

With this enhancement, customers using the Stripe payment gateway can automatically collect tax from their end users during the transaction. Stripe Tax lets you calculate, collect, and report tax on global payments with a single integration. You can easily register with Stripe and access the reports within Stripe to file returns.​



To enable Stripe Tax Calculation, go to ADMIN > TOOLS > LEARNING > LEARNING PREFERENCES > E-COMMERCE and click Modify Payment Account. In the Define Payment Account page, select Enable Stripe Tax Calculation check box.

To select the Learning Objects (LOs) that are eligible for tax calculation, go to admin > tools > learning > e-commerce > taxes > tax preferences and select the LOs. Now go to the pricing section of an eligible LO and select Apply sales tax check box.
