Revindex Storefront 6.0 - Avalara tax, address validation, tax exemption and more


2014 is looking to be a great year for ecommerce. As we progress into our new year resolution, it reminds us to do things right. For many businesses, that also means file your taxes on time!

Revindex Storefront now supports Avalara AvaTax calculation. This is one of the best tax providers you can find so your business can stay compliant and avoid any nasty surprises. With Avalara, your Storefront will calculate taxes accurately to the last zip code digit for every product type you can imagine. You'll be delighted to know the Storefront can also perform address validation to verify the correctness of the customer address thereby yielding accurate tax calculation and better shipping deliver-ability.  Speak to us if you like to get started with Avalara.

In 6.0, we also integrated the product search using the latest DNN Lucene search API. The new search allows for better indexing of keywords and greater accuracy in the search results.
