Create and apply taxes

You can create and manage taxes through the Payments Hub in your web browser, the Poynt Smart Terminal catalog, or the Terminal app. When you define taxes, you enable the Register app to automatically calculate and apply taxes to items during a transaction.

Note: You will need to create a catalog and assign it to your Smart Terminal if you haven’t already.


Create the taxes you want to use, then add them to the catalog. Here’s how you do it in the Payments Hub.

  1. Sign in to your Selling In Person Overview page (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select the Catalogs tab and select a catalog.
  3. Note: You can also apply taxes to an individual product or category by selecting the product or category, then Edit taxes. If you apply taxes to a catalog, don’t add additional taxes at the product or category level – you don’t want to charge tax twice!

  4. Below your catalog’s name, select Taxes > Add tax.
    The taxes tab above the catalog is highlighted
  5. Either create a new tax rate or apply an existing tax rate to items in your catalog:
    • To create a new tax, select Create Tax and fill in the Name, Type (such as sales tax, alcohol tax, etc) and Percent(%) or Amount ($) and select Save.
    • To use an existing tax, select Add existing, and select the box next to the tax you want to add, then select Add.
