Wholesale EU VAT Number integration

Recently, we came across an incredible plugin that has gained popularity among businesses operating in the European Union. The plugin we’re referring to is none other than wholesale EU VAT Number.

Wholesale EU VAT Number is a powerful tool that simplifies the cumbersome task of verifying VAT numbers. In addition, it offers customers the choice not to pay VAT on your store.

The good news? Using wholesale EU VAT Number is super easy – no complex coding or website tinkering required!

The even better news? We’ve integrated the plugin into our Wholesale Prices Premium expansion for WooCommerce. So if you’re already enjoying our nifty tool, wholesale EU VAT Number is yours, free of charge! Not to mention it automatically activates when you update Wholesale Prices Premium to version 1.7.3!

What Is Wholesale EU VAT Number?

Wholesale EU VAT Number is a game-changing WooCommerce plugin that collects VAT numbers at checkout and removes the VAT charge for eligible EU businesses. As such, it’s a must-have for any enterprises operating in the European Union.

The plugin is available on Woo Marketplace and is fully integrated with Wholesale Suite.

VAT charge removal

Here’s how it works. Once a customer is ready to complete their purchase and proceeds to your store’s checkout page, wholesale EU VAT Number provides them with an optional text field to fill in.

This field collects the EU VAT number from businesses that have one, then determines its validity. Once the plugin confirms that an EU VAT number is authentic, your store won’t charge the customer VAT.

Because the field is optional, your wholesale customers are given the choice to pay VAT at your store or not. The convenience this offers can boost your customers’ satisfaction, encouraging them to keep doing business with you!

VAT number validation

So, how does the wholesale EU VAT Number plugin determine whether or not an EU VAT number is legit? Simple: it uses a powerful validation feature that analyzes every VAT number it collects.

This validation feature comes built into wholesale EU VAT Number, thus ensuring that any business that provides a genuine number isn’t charged VAT at your store.

But is this authentication function reliable? Indeed it is, as it’s powered by VIES VAT Number Validation, which was developed by the European Commission. Needless to say, VIES is an incredibly important tool that many businesses operating in the European Union regularly use.

  1. I bought EU VAT Number plugin as you suggested on this page. Can you please tell me how and where to link this VAT number to the Registration Form Fields (until now we use a custom field but there’s no connection between these fields). Also I wonder where the VAT number is visible to an Admin but maybe that is something I should ask WooCommerce themselves. Appreciate if you get back to me on this one!

    1. Hi Verwer,

      We’ve integrated with EU VAT Number for the pricing/checkout side, but lead capture does not capture and store those details against the user, they’re entered by the user during checkout.

      Hope this helps clear it up!

  2. Hi Josh,

    Is it possible to add the vat with validation on the registration? Any snippet available for that?

    1. Hey, there’s a bunch of VAT type checkout plugins on the market. I like Aelia WooCommerce EU VAT Assistant myself and we have a full integration with them.

  3. Hi, can you be more thorough explaining what is the integration of EU VAT Number? Why is there no possibility to have the field of EU VAT Number in Lead Capture? Not even through a hook? B2B selling is getting complicated …

    1. Hi metaline, I recommend you look at our Integrations page, there’s are also other options for EU VAT (eg. the Aelia version) which might be more complete. For the lead capture thing, we can help you with a post-approve code snippet (similar to this one: https://wholesalesuiteplugin.com/kb/send-user-information-zapier-approval/) which you can use to set the value in the user’s meta (or whatever else you need to do with that value). Please write in to support.
