Avalara Teams Up with WooCommerce to Help Online Merchants Manage Sales Taxes


Sales tax compliance specialist, Avalara and WordPress-powered eCommerce platform WooCommerce extended their partnership, bringing active updating, maintenance, and support to users of WooCommerce 2.3 and beyond.

Joel Bronkowski, chief business development officer for WooCommerce said Avalara had been a “terrific partner.” He added, “We chose to work with Avalara, because they have a proven track record of delivering the best tax compliance solutions for business.”

Avalara’s API-based technology provides accurate, dynamic sales tax information to businesses using precise geo-location in more than 12,000 U.S. jurisdictions. Beyond sales taxes, Avalara’s solutions work for any transactional tax, including value added, communications, and excise taxes. Avalara integrates with a wide variety of financial platforms ranging from Salesforce and QuickBooks to Magento and SAGE.

“Avalara enables business owners to accurately calculate the right tax for the right product at the right time, right in the shopping cart,” Marshal Kushniruk, EVP of global business development for Avalara said. “It’s a huge win for our mutual customers.”

Avalara also announced this month that users of Datacor’s ERP solution, Chempax, will now be able to use Avalara for real-time, line-item, sales tax calculations. Shopify Plus integrated Avalara’s Compliance Cloud technology in January, the same month the company launched its LandedCost global tax compliance solution.

Headquartered in Seattle and founded in 2004, Avalara made its FinDEVr debut at FinDEVr 2015 in San Francisco. See the company’s presentation, “The Wacky World of Sales Tax.”
