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 Poynt 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.

Create taxes in the web browser

  1. Sign in to your Selling In Person Overview page (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select the Catalogs tab.
  3. Select Taxes.
  4. Select Add tax.
  5. Enter the Name, Description, and Calculation (choose either % of total or Fixed amount).
  6. Enter the Tax. If you chose % of total for the Calculation, enter the percentage. If you chose Fixed amount, enter the dollar amount.
  7. Optionally enter the Type of tax – for example, whether it's a sales tax, alcohol tax, or another category of tax.
  8. Select Save.

Add taxes using the web browser

  1. Sign in to your Selling In Person Overview page (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select the Catalogs tab.
  3. Select the catalog you want.
  4. Select Taxes.
  5. Select Add tax.
  6. To create a new tax, select Create Tax and fill in the Name, Type, and Percent (%) or Amount ($).
  7. To use an existing tax, select Add existing, and then select a tax from the list.

Note: You can also apply taxes to an individual product or category within a catalog by selecting the category or product, and then selecting 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!
