Overriding Taxes at the Product Level

Set custom tax rates that override the accounts rate settings for that region.

We also suggest possible reduced rate categories that can be easily applied to any particular country.

  1. Navigate to the Product>>Configure tab.
  2. Look for the button "Per-country overrides" on the left sidebar:
  3. Enter the new value on the Empty boxes or click on Apply to set up the suggested value :)
  4. Add any additional countries at the bottom of the page.

The values auto-save as soon as they get added, no need for further "Save" steps on this page! :)
