    Default Taxes and Paypal Express

    So I've done a lot of searching and have come up with nothing. I am using ZC version 1.50 and have set up 1 item in taxable class, taxes are calculated on shipping and only apply to zone Colorado. My taxes work great in Zen Cart but when customers that are not logged in click the paypal express button, papyal skips shipping and handling and displays the colorado sales tax in the total without ever inquiring about the location, etc. This happens regardless of whether the customer proceeds to enter an out of state credit card and shipping address. Is there a way to integrate shipping and taxes with express checkout and still allow customers to skip the payment form within zencart itself? I hope this makes since, thanks for your help!

    Zen Cart can only assess taxes when it knows the customer's address. So, that either happens as a result of the customer first creating an account on your store, or after they've logged in to PayPal and been returned to your store to select shipping options and finalize payment.

    can you make the customer return to the store to select shipping options using express checkout? Sorry if this is obvious but I just don't see the option for this in EC

    Yes. That's the only way it works.

    It sounds like you've not gone through a complete checkout yet.

    A - The customer adds to their cart.

    B - Then has two choices:
    1. Normal checkout, which requires creation of or login to their account in your store.
    2. Jump directly to PayPal to choose their funding source (credit card or paypal balance, etc), and returns to your store

    C - Customer is taken to the Shipping choices page

    D - Customer is taken to the Payment choices page where they can choose a payment method or enter coupons and gift certificates. If they chose Express Checkout earlier in "B" above, then the PayPal option will be auto-selected here and no other choices offered.
    Taxes will be calculated and shown.

    E - Customer is taken to the Confirmation screen where they see the actual final purchase amount including shipping and taxes. When they click the submit button on this page, one of two things will happen:
    1 - if they chose Express Checkout earlier, THIS IS WHEN their PayPal account/card will be charged and funds transferred to the storeowner.
    2 - If they chose normal checkout and selected PayPal on the payment-options screen, then they'll be taken to PayPal to login and choose funding and confirm the final tax-included and shipping-included amount (because those amounts are known as a result of having given their address details to you when they created their account in your store). Funds will of course be transferred to the storeowner when they click the "Pay" button in PayPal.

    F - Then the customer is taken to your store's Checkout-Success screen to thank them for placing their order.

    Ah OK, I did a test run but only went as far as "preview and submit" and didn't actually complete the payment. Thanks guys.

    Hello DrByte,

    What should I do to fix the issue?
    Thanks
