As part of ShowShoppa’s launch in North America with 3 new marketplaces in 2021, ShowShoppa has partnered with Avalara, the global leader in tax compliance, to be able to offer fully automated US Sales Tax compliance.
The complexity of sales tax compliance has been a major challenge for many ecommerce businesses often resulting in increases in administrative costs. With ShowShoppa’s integration with Avalara, the marketplace platform will automatically calculate and collect the required sales tax when items are purchased via the marketplace, ensuring full compliance for the marketplace owner. The integration will make it easy to stay on top of changes to tax jurisdiction boundaries and rules defining which products and services are taxable, with exact and instant calculations.
With the continued rapid growth of eCommerce, international event organisers are looking for new ways to enhance their offering to support live events. An event marketplace provides a 365 window for exhibitors and visitors to interact and transact, providing a whole new dimension to the event brand and a new revenue stream for the event organisers. With the ShowShoppa marketplace platform, a fully managed transactional marketplace can be created very quickly.
If you are organising events in North America and considering launching a marketplace, please get in touch with the team at ShowShoppa who will be happy to assist.
