byJanuary 9, 2020
Boston, MA – January 9, 2020 – TaxJar, the leading sales tax software company for eCommerce businesses and developers, announces unprecedented customer, volume and partnership growth in 2019 driven by its mid-market product TaxJar Plus. During the Black Friday/Cyber Monday holiday weekend, TaxJar supported more than $2.3B in Gross Merchandise Volume (GMV) and facilitated sales tax collection and reporting for approximately $150M in sales tax. Hosting 27 million API calls across the five-day shopping period, TaxJar’s API traffic increased five-fold as compared to the same time period last year.
TaxJar Plus is a full-service sales tax solution with dedicated account management teams, best-in-class technical onboarding and exclusive sales tax management features. The software offers truly integrated multi-channel reporting capabilities, automated remittance and filing with AutoFile, and a free Economic Nexus Insights tracking and notification service. Mid-market customers have all the compliance tools they need with TaxJar Plus to support their business when the growing complexities of sales volume, state nexus and platform requirements have multiplied.
“The investments we’ve made to handle seasonal spikes in traffic enable us to scale our technology with ease and offer uninterrupted service and accuracy,” said Matt Anderson, TaxJar’s Chief Technology Officer. “Our growing mid-market customer base relies on TaxJar Plus to provide best-in-class customer service and seamless integrations so they can focus on growing their business, not managing sales tax.”
As the fallout from South Dakota vs. Wayfair continues to impact more high-growth merchants, the company’s customers are collecting sales tax in more than three times as many states today as they did a year ago. The rapid legislative changes across US states are driving more and more businesses and developers to choose the software company to power the sales tax insight and back-end needs of their businesses.
In 2019, TaxJar customers gained access to new pre-built integrations with even more leading eCommerce platforms and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems such as NetSuite, Chargebee, BigCommerce, Microsoft NAV and Quickbooks. The company’s more than 20,000 customers can quickly integrate with TaxJar’s certified integrations to expedite go-live and reduce the initial implementation time and investment.
TaxJar’s momentum shows no sign of stopping in 2020. G2’s latest Winter report rates TaxJar as #1 in Support, Performance, Relationship and Momentum, all chosen by the source that matters most, TaxJar’s customers.
