As of April 27, 2023, ClickBank has implemented some changes to our platform that better reflect the most up-to-date tax requirements for countries, states, provinces, counties, etc. around the globe.
ClickBank has partnered with Avalara, the premier tax remittance software in the e-commerce industry. Avalara’s cloud-based AvaTax software seamlessly maintains and applies accurate sales tax, GST, and VAT rates around the globe. These rates are kept current with the latest tax codes based on multiple factors for all physical and digital products.
Because of this, sellers, affiliates, and customers may see some changes in prices. This will be most evident with recurring orders. This integration does not currently impact where we collect taxes, but will help ensure we collect the most accurate tax amount for all sales based on the most up-to-date tax rules on a continuous basis.
The new tax service architecture at Clickbank not only includes the most accurate tax rates, it also includes improved FX conversion rates to ensure all calculated values are accurate for tax reporting. AvaTax provides updated exchange fees on a more consistent cadence. This may change initial and recurring sale amounts depending on what currency your product is offered in.
You can use the Avalara Sales Tax Calculator or the state sales tax rate table to find the most current taxes for a specific area.
We encourage sellers to be prepared to answer customer questions about price changes to both their customers and affiliates.
If you are a seller on ClickBank and have any questions about the platform updates, please submit a support ticket.
