VAT registration numbers in your Shopify admin
When the customer enters their VAT registration number using this field, their VAT registration number will be saved as a cart attribute in your Shopify admin.
Sufio will then validate the VAT registration number and set the customer as tax-exempt when applicable. Lastly, the VAT registration number will be automatically included on your customer's invoice.
Add the VAT registration number field to the cart page
To add the VAT registration number field to the cart page, you need to customize your Shopify store theme:
- In your Shopify admin, go to the Online Store → Themes page.
- Click the Actions button, then click Edit code.
- Select cart.liquid (or cart-template.liquid) in the left sidebar. You might use the upper search bar for a faster search.
- Insert the following code snippet inside the
<form>. A good place for the field is just before the Check out button.
You can modify the
label part of the code snippet by replacing the VAT Registration Number text with anything else you'd like. Please contact our support team if you need to make the label multilingual. We'll be happy to help!
Please note that if your store uses cart drawer (also called ajax cart), this code snippet needs to be added to a different file than cart.liquid. In most cases, it needs to be added to ajax-cart-template.liquid file.
