Avalara or TaxJar

Does anyone have any feedback on your experiences with either company, both via Shopsite and otherwise?

Thanks!

Avatax by Avalara was first integrated in ShopSite version 10.1, 9 years ago! TaxJar was integrated this year in version 14. There have been a few tweaks to the TaxJar integration but with the latest ShopSite release (v14.0 r2) we are not aware of any issues. Both platforms are integrated with the same architecture and both will give accurate tax results down to the street address.

Is there a demo where I can see the customer-facing part in action?

Probably the best thing to do would be to try it out for free.

Avatax is currently offering a free 60 day trial:

TaxJar is offereing a free 30 day trial:
https://taxjar.grsm.io/shopsite

There is not really anything to see on the shopper side. When they enter their zip code an initial tax rate is calculated. When they enter the Ship To address on the billing screen the tax is recalculated with the additional street information and then updated if it changed.

ShopSite communicates behind the scene with TaxJar or Avatax similar to how it communicates with a shipper such as UPS or FedEX.
