Why was I charged a VAT tax on my order?


We have had some questions about a tax being charged above the actual product price on overseas orders. We process all our credit card sales through ClickBank. They provide our customers with the security and simplicity we look for. Here is the most common reason you might see a tax charged on your order -


If you look on your ClickBank email confirmation you should see a line that says VAT tax.


Here is the information that ClickBank provides about VAT:

As of July 1, 2003, online retailers of digital products like ClickBank, are required to collect VAT taxes on digital goods. The value-added tax is a European sales tax, charged to customers in the European Community (EC).

This includes all downloadable material like software and ebooks. You can click through the following links for more information on VAT taxes for digital goods.

As you can see it is not something that we charge but is done because of the laws in place at the time of purchase.
