STEP 3: REPEAT FOR ANY ADDITIONAL TAX RATES
Once you save your first tax rate, continue this process for any additional tax rates you need to charge.
Edit a Tax Rate or Fee
Sometimes tax rates change. There are two strategies to implement these changes for your products on TRYTN:
OPTION 1: Create a New Tax Rate
You can create new tax rates and add these to your products at any time. See steps here.
OPTION 2: Modify an Existing Tax Rate
The other option is to simply modify your existing tax rates. By modifying existing rates, none of your products or add-ons need to be adjusted and the edit will be presented to the user on all subsequent purchases. To get started, navigate to Shop Settings > Tax Rates to find your list of current tax rates. If you do not see any active tax rates you may need to create a tax rate or all existing tax rates may be archived.
Select Edit from the Actions menu for the tax rate you wish to edit. Don' forget to save your changes when edits are complete.
Archive a Tax Rate or Fee
When you no longer need a tax rate from your active list, you have the ability to archive that tax rate. By archiving the tax rate it will no longer show up as an option when creating/editing products or add-ons.
STEP 1: Locate the Tax or Fee to Archive
To archive a tax rate, log in to your TRYTN account, navigate to Settings > Tax Rates and Fees and select the Add button. Or, if you are already logged in, you can simply click here.
STEP 2: Select Archive
Find the tax rate you wish to archive in the active list. Then click to view the Actions menu and select Archive.
It is important to note that any product or add-on that already has this tax rate applied to it will continue to use the tax rate until the rate has been removed from the product or add-on. Archived tax rates will not be available for selection for any new product or add-on created after the tax rate has been archived.
Translate a Tax Rate/Fee
Tax rate information is presented directly to your customers, so TRYTN supports the ability to translate certain tax rate information into other languages.
STEP 1: Locate the Tax or Fee to Translate
Navigate to Settings > Tax Rates and Fees and find the tax rate you wish to translate from the active list.
STEP 2: Select Translations
Click to expand the Actions menu and select Translations.
STEP 3: Create Your Translation
From the Tax Rates & Fees Translations page, you can enter your own translated content.
At the top of the form, under Select Language, pick the language you wish to translate your tax rate/fee into. Note: If the system does not offer the language you wish to use, please contact your account manager to learn about how to request custom development.
Under Default Content, the left column lists the English version of each field that can be translated. The right column offers the ability to translate these fields into another language. Note, by default the English version may be present. Translate your content for each of the fields in the fields on the right.
Once the fields are translated select Save Translations. If you select Cancel, the translation changes will not be saved.
How do translations work?
When a user selects a different language (or enters the booking process with a specific language) the translated content will be present. Any content not translated will be presented to the user in English.
Assign Tax Rate(s) to Your Products
As you add products to your TRYTN account, you have the ability to attach tax rates and/or fees individually by product, or you can elect for a rate/fee to be automatically applied to all new products.
To configure tax rates for individual products:
STEP 1: Locate Your Product
Use the Products link in the main site navigation to find an existing product from the list of your shop's active products. Once you find the product you're looking for, click Actions > Advanced Settings.
STEP 2: Open Tax/Fee Settings
On the left side of the page, select Taxes (option 2) to expand Advanced Settings for Taxes and Fees.
STEP 3: Add Applicable Taxes and/or Fees
Click the field under Applicable Taxes & Fees to view a list of all tax rates and fees created for your shop on TRYTN. Select any applicable taxes/fees to add them to the product. To remove any unwanted taxes/fees from the field, simply click the associated "x."
Once you have added/deleted all necessary tax rates and/or fees for your product, select Save Changes.
To configure tax rates for all new products:
When creating a new tax rate or fee, you have the option to select the following checkbox to automatically apply your tax rate/fee to any new product or add-on you create.
Any time the rate/fee does not apply, it can be easily removed when adding the product. However, you can also update this setting anytime by unchecking the default box. To do this, navigate to Settings > Tax Rates and Fees and find the tax rate you wish to update from the active list. Click the associated Actions menu > Edit. Click to remove the checked box and Save Changes to save your new setting for this rate/fee.
