EU Vat Extension Beta Testers

I’ve just created a EU Vat extension and are looking for anyone interested in testing it.

It ties into the VIES tax verification system and will put a customer with a valid number into a customer group you have specified in admin so they won’t be taxed. If the syntax is invalid or the verification fails then a customisable error message will be shown to the customer. You can choose countries that you always want to tax regardless of if the number is valid, if you’re in the UK you would want to set this to UK for example.

If you’re interested please send me a pm for further details. I’m only looking for 5-10 people maximum. I will provide the final version free of charge to anyone interested in testing.

What is the difference between your new extension and the one we are currently using, which is: https://technology.pillwax.com/software/euvat-for-magento.html

I would happily move to your extension as your extensions work well whereas the pillwax one has caused me plenty of headaches!!

Hi,

Josh is on holiday, hence delayed reply from me as wasn’t checking.  Not sure how it differs from the other versions as we havent analysed their’s - we just needed it for our own site so thought we would build ourselves.

We have seen problems with the actual gateway not validating, we have adding in both standard http get and soap support so it tries both routes (if soap is enabled on your install), but it does seem that sometimes the gateway just falls over.  Obviously outside our control.

We are currently adding in some extra logic to the extension to make the customer experience better when validation fails. So will have a new release out next week.

Rgds

Currently using a VIE Eu Vat extension that works with box customer classes and customer groups.

I wouldn’t mind seeing what you’ve come up with.

The main problem for these extensions are admin created orders. If an order is VAT free, it normally doesn’t work in the admin :(
