This feature is available on our 3.0.0 release and on all sites hosted at Yclas.com

Yclas allows you to include VAT to the orders. When users purchase Featured Ads, To Top, Pay to Post or Membership plans the VAT will be added at checkout. You can also configure your website in a way where users can enter their VAT number and the VAT will be added automatically at checkout when they are selling their products.

Configure VAT for features

Follow the steps below if you want to add the VAT to the features of your website, Featured Ads, To Top, Pay to Post and Membership plans.

  1. Login to your panel.
  2. Go to Settings -> Payment -> General.
  3. Enter the VAT country and VAT number.
  4. Click Save.

Once you click Save you should get a success message. If you get the following message it means that VAT country or number is wrong :

Error: Invalid EU Vat Number, please verify number and country match

Configure VAT for sellers

If you don’t know how to enable the Buy Now button, here’s how.

Sellers can enter their VAT number and include VAT at checkout when they are selling their products through your website. This can be done in two ways: using Advertisement Custom Fields or User Custom Fields.

At checkout, your website will try to calculate the VAT using the Advertisement VAT number, if it’s missing it will use User VAT number and if that is missing too, then no VAT will be added on the amount.

  1. Login to your panel.
  2. Go to Classifieds -> Custom Fields.
  3. Click New Field.
  4. Enter vatcountry into the field called Name. It’s important to enter vatcountry as name and choose Country as the field type in order to make the feature works. Choosing Country will automatically create dropdown menu with all the countries included.
  5. Fill the fields and press Create.
  6. Click New Field.
  7. Enter vatnumber into the field called Name. It’s important to enter vatnumber as name in order to make the feature works.
