Stripe Tax Service - Other Payment Gateways

Customers who use other payment gateways within CSX EXE (like Adyen, Paypoint, etc.) to sell courses and want an additional Tax service can use the Stripe tax feature to add the sales tax to the purchase price of the products they sell through CSX EXE during the transaction. It is a standalone feature and is independent of the Stripe payment gateway.

Note: To enable this functionality, please contact your account manager to allow the Tax Stripe feature within CSX EXE.

The following key functionalities accompany this feature:

  • Easy to register with Stripe.
  • Automatically collect the right amount of Tax.
  • Customers can easily access the reports within Stripe to file returns.

Note: Cybersource no longer provides Tax services to other payment gateways.

Setting up Stripe Tax in CSX user interface

To avail the Stripe Tax service, the customers must have a Stripe account. Set up the regions within your Stripe Account for which the sales tax needs to be calculated. Your Stripe Account ID and secret key are required to complete the setup in CSX EXE under the “Modify Payment Gateway” page.

In CSX EXE, Stripe Tax needs to be enabled via the “Define Payment Account” page. See Stripe Payment Gateway - Define Payment Account.

In the “Define Payment Account” page, under the Tax Calculator section, select “Stripe” from the dropdown and enter your Stripe Account ID and secret key that Stripe provided. For more information, See Stripe Payment Gateway - Tax.
