Introduction

Virtuemart Payment Systems, Virtuemart Orders

The integration of the TaxCloud USA taxes service into Virtuemart.
Now available for VirtueMart 3.0/Joomla3.6! (from version VM3.2.12)
------ there is an update for users going to php7 .. this is not an inherent TaxCloud plugin problem but a problem with the servers cached version of the WSDL file being not compatible across php versions. basically the fix is to allow the cache to be disregarded by TaxCloud until the cache runs out and then the cache can be reused. This is version TaxCloud 3.2.00 and is fully checked on VM3.2.12 - full instructions in the plugin. -------
As they say on their website, "TaxCloud is a the internet's only free sales tax processing service". Our integration is a standard Joomla Plugin with no core hacks. After enabling the plugin one simple configuration in the Virtuemart 3.0/2.0 Taxes & Calculation Rules is all that's necessary. Address verification with the USPS is included so if the address cannot be found the user is redirected back to their address management to correct the error.

You are required to register with https://taxcloud.net/ to receive an account id and key. This is completely free. Check out their Terms & Conditions: http://taxcloud.net/#pricing . Please check with TaxCloud for the particular state/s you will be using this for as to any supplementary charge for tax lookup. For the address verification a registration with the USPS is now no longer required. Just enter a 1 in the api key field.

Your version of VM must be greater than VM3.2.12.

As the supreme court ruling appears to force retailers to collect sales tax ( https://www.cnbc.com/2018/06/21/heres-what-that-supreme-court-sales-tax-decision-means-for-you.html ) we have done a full checkup of the current Taxcloud plugin ...

Works out of the box on both Rupostels OPC and Virtueplanets OPC :) plus of course standard VM checkouts

Functionality
Does what it says, grabs the Tax Rate from TaxCloud and returns it in a VM calculation field.
Ease of use
TaxCloud/VM are inherently confusing, don't expect it to be a walk in the park. However, the plugin itself makes it as easy as possible.
Support
Very helpful and responded quickly, even though it turned out to be our fault.
Documentation
Didn't need this but assuming it is fine.
Value for money
This is the best solution for connecting TaxCloud to VM, works out of the box if you set it up properly, and if Virtuemart behaves.
I used this to: E-commerce websites.
Functionality
The extension does exactly what it says, and requires following the excellent detailed instructions that are provided with the extension.
Ease of use
Easy to use if you follow the steps given for setup, make sure to check your joomla and virtuemart versions.
Support
John was super responsive some of the best support I've ever seen on an extension!!!
Documentation
Documentation is excellent step by step the only way to mess up installation is to not follow the steps.
Value for money
Saved a lot of pain in coding thx so much!
I used this to: I used this for a company here in FL that needed taxes calculated for every county! this worked perfectly!
Functionality
California has hundreds of sales tax districts with varying rates. Taxcloud for Virtuemart fully automates the sales tax calculations.
Ease of use
Easy to set up and once installed, transparent to the user.
Support
I was initially having issues with the tax calculation disappearing in the shopping cart. The developer found and corrected it in Virtuemart
Documentation
Very easy setup instructions
Value for money
I often look for free extensions, but this one is spot on for value. Could not run our site without it!
I used this to: calculating California sales tax with hundreds of rates that are based upon the shipping destination. Great plug in!
Functionality
Everything works seamlessly, and most importantly it works in the background. Any US Zip code tax rate at your fingertips!
Ease of use
This plugin has simple, easy to follow directions, including setting everything up in Taxcloud. Once it's set up, it just works great.
Support
John provides excellent support. You are in safe and most importantly extremely competent hands.
Documentation
Easy to follow directions from both this plugin, as well as when you are filling things out on Taxcloud.
Value for money
Excellent value for the money. We will use this plugin all the time, and because it's always updating itself, it's great peace of mind.
I used this to: VM 2 and 3. We're currently on 2, but I know there's a VM3 Version. This plugin serves a vital function to us, especially with crazy US zip code laws.

Functionality
I think that this plugin is totally needed for virtuemart to work in the US
Ease of use
It requires a USPS account and a communication e-mail with them to enable some extra features, but it is completely documented.
Support
Excellent and immediate support.
John not only found my problem but also suggested a bunch of changes to improve my website!
Documentation
Value for money
Instead of manually inserting all the zip codes and taxes and changing them from time to time, you give 70euros and you are worry free!
I purchased this, really nice plugin and works perfectly.

Good support, always available for help.
The extension is really work base on description and screenshots.



Also the developer support is really great, quick response and very helpful, they are willing to invest their own time to make sure the plugins will work correctly.



Note.. just make sure your VM and Joomla is always latest and updated version.
This program is very stable, easily installed, packaged with easy to use instructions, and does exactly what it says it does. Initially, during setup, I thought there might have been an error with the instructions as the plugin did not work right away. I emailed gjcwebdesign. Within an hour I got a response. After a small amount of correspondence, gjcwebdesign determined the issue was NOT from the plugin and was directly related to the products not having SKU numbers yet. Sure enough, he was correct and, when I input the SKU numbers, the plugin worked perfect.



This is product, while seeming to have an error, worked perfect out of the box and in conjunction with the TaxCloud/USPS web sites. Just remember to make sure the TaxCloud and USPS API codes are correct, that the CURL library is enabled, and the products are setup with SKUs. Thank you for your hard work on this excellent program, gjcwebdesign!
