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.
