Taxes Collected

Because ClickBank is considered the final retailer/reseller for all products sold through ClickBank, it is our responsibility to collect and remit various types of sales taxes based on the customer's location. ClickBank automatically collects and remits taxes for jurisdictions in which ClickBank is legally required to do so. In addition to taxes collected due to our corporate status or "nexus," here is more information about tax requirements in specific jurisdictions:

  • European Union VAT – Online retailers of digital products, including ClickBank, are required to collect VAT (Value Added Tax) for products purchased by customers with a billing address located in the European Union (EU), as well as Norway and Iceland.
