The column is Tax Rules ID and the field is Tax Rule ID. The value will be a number. I use 3 for Arizona and 53 for my combination rule.
You need to enable whichever states you have to collect tax for under the Localization-Taxes tab (make sure they have the correct tax listed, and edit it if it is wrong) and save. Then go to Localization-Tax Rules. If you only need South Carolina enable rule #40 and save. If you need more than one state you will have to create a new tax rule. Name it something you will remember save and then fill in the next bunch of fields, save. Once you have your tax rules set up you need to attach the rule to the products. I do this with my csv import.
@alwayspaws Do you have to charge sales tax for every state?
I only have to charge sales tax for items shipped to Arizona (which is my nexus) and, for some products, California and North Carolina (which is the nexus of a supplier which ships directly to the customer for me). To do this I have two tax rules, one for the things I ship directly with just Arizona customers paying the tax, and the other with Arizona, California and North Carolina customers paying tax.
If you have to charge sales tax for all states you will have to enable all of them in taxes and then create a new tax rule which includes all of them. You can only have one tax rule attached to a product.
Thank you @mdekker. Until I watched your video I did not see the tiny white arrow on the help screen. Before I always just clicked the link and then got lost. I now have it working for LJsBooks.com. Am I right to assume I need to repeat the process for the second shop in my multishop setup?
Click the green button on the top right and choose the download zip option. (You can’t just download the mails folder as far as I could see.)
After it downloads unzip it and then upload just the mails folder to your server (I used filezilla).
@alwayspaws Are the colors in the right position on this page?
If you are starting from scratch I would recommend having a database with your inventory and uploading to ThirtyBees using the csv import. There are several book databases available, BookTrakker.com is probably one of the best but has a monthly subscription fee. Bibliopolis.com has a product called Bookhound that can be purchased outright. Abebooks.com has a free product called HomeBase. Or if you, like me, are a glutton for punishment you can build your own using MS Access or FilemakerPro
As far as adapting 30bz, I use the product name for the title and all the other bibliographic items, author, publisher, date etc are features. The short description lists all the bibliographic information and basic condition of the book and DJ. The long description has the expanded condition. You can see how it plays out in the front office at LJsBooks.com. I tried using layered navigation but with the number of different authors, publishers and all it just didn’t work. I disabled the add to cart buttons on the products featured on the home page and on the category pages because I want people to read the condition description before they purchase the book.
I hope that helps, if you have any questions please feel free to ask.
