Step 5 | Setting up tax

Make sure you comply with local tax laws by setting up the correct tax rules for your store. Most merchants are required to collect taxes only from their own country, or only from their local state or province. There are, however, exceptions to this guideline. Learn more about tax collection.
  • Different tax rules apply in different regions. Consult with an accountant or with your local tax authority for specific information relevant for your store.

Step 6 | Setting up a point of sale

By making your phone a point of sale (POS), you can sell and collect cash or credit card payments right on your mobile device - all without requiring your members to access your site or download Fit by Wix. 
Once you have the Wix Owner app, you can start accepting cash payments with no further setup. To accept credit / debit card payments you need to create a Wix Payments account and order a card reader.
