While Hip is a marketplace, in accordance with our terms, we are not a party to any transactions between buyers and sellers. Additionally, all payments are made exclusively between each buyer and each seller, with no direct or indirect involvement from Hip. As a result, we have no ability to collect payment from any buyers ourselves, or remit payments to any sellers ourselves, and as such, we do not collect sales tax automatically.
Can I charge buyers sales tax on Hip?
Yes, we provide each Seller with the ability to define their sales tax nexuses and to specify which locations/states they need to collect sales tax in. Buyers in these locations/states will then automatically be charged sales tax at the appropriate percent, which you are responsible for remitting accordingly. To set up your sales tax nexuses, head to the Global Settings page (Members Area > Selling > Global Settings), also linked below:
Under the "Tax Type" section, select any applicable sales tax nexuses.
Please note that as a Seller, you are responsible for ensuring that you follow any applicable tax laws.
