How To Add Taxes To Your Marketplace Listings

Important note: When using the World Class Antiques system, you are responsible for complying with all applicable tax laws in your area. Please contact a tax professional to determine whether you need to charge sales tax on your antiques sales or if you have questions about taxes. We cannot provide tax advice, and cannot guarantee that our sales tax tool will meet all tax requirements.

Use the World Class Antiques tax administration tool to specify a sales tax rate for each location in which you're required to charge tax. You can also choose to charge sales tax on shipping and handling if that is required by law.

Here's how to use the tax administration tool:

Register for a free account or sign in to get started.

  1. Under the My Account link select My Account Home
  2. Under Summary, within the left navigation, scroll down to the bottom of the page under the Listing Preferences. Click on the Taxes link.
  3. Under "Add New Sales Tax Rate," select your country and the state/province that you'd like to apply a tax for. Then add a percentage rate and indicate how taxes apply to your shipping rates.
  4. Click Save to apply your changes.

If you are in Canada, visit the Canada Revenue Agency to learn more about charging taxes on online sales (link opens in a new window).
