Is sales tax collected automatically?

While Hip is a marketplace, we are not directly involved in any transactions, and all payment is made directly from each buyer to each seller. As a result, as we have no ability to collect payment from any buyers, and we do not collect sales tax automatically.

Can I charge buyers sales tax on Hip?

Yes, we provide each Seller with the option to specify where they would like to collect sales tax and buyers in those locations will then automatically be charged sales tax at the indicated percent. To set up your sales tax nexuses, head to the Global Settings page (Members Area > Selling > Global Settings), also linked below:

HipStamp Global Settings
HipComic Global Settings
HipPostcard Global Settings

Under the "Tax Type" section, select any applicable tax nexuses.

What if the percentage rate that I need to charge is not shown?

If you do not see a tax type you need, please contact us at

Please note that as a Seller, you are responsible for ensuring that you follow any applicable tax laws.
