Sales and Value Added Country Taxes

  • This release is required as PayPal Express Checkout API does not use the PayPal tax tables – these are only used for hosted PayPal buttons.
  • Adds tax if required – this is best used with an order confirmation page which shows the tax breakdown before the buyer confirms the order. The tax cannot be shown on PayPal itself as the country of residence of the buyer (and hence the applicable tax) is not known until after the buyer has logged in on PayPal.
  • On the admin/setup you can indicate whether or not tax should be applied at all
  • Specify a default tax rate to be applied if taxation is based purely on the jurisdiction of the seller
  • Specify one or more country code and tax rates whether the tax rate is based upon the country of residence of the buyer.

Subscription Cancellation Enhancements

  • Fixes an issue where the same Infusionsoft subscription is bundled within more than one SubscriptionBoss subscription which have different cancellation action sets. This previously caused a problem as the plugin was only informed which Infusionsoft subscription was cancelled and hence could not determine which action set to call. In this release, the cancellation event identifies the plugin subscription ID as well as the Infusionsoft subscription ID and hence runs the correct action set.
  • Same issue of disambiguation of action sets has been fixed for payment failures nad refunds
