VAT & Cross border in eBay module

eBay refers to international sales as “Cross Border”, and classifies them in two ways: “Passive” and “Active”.

Here is the description of the 2 cases, and what to know for each.

1. Passive CBT: 1 eBay site from which international deliveries are activated.

The eBay module is connected to a single eBay site (as eBay France), and international delivery is enabled (to the US and Italy).

The products are presented on the 3 eBay accounts (FR, US & IT) with the same price including VAT: the price including tax that PrestaShop offers for France. In case of purchase, the VAT rate applied is that of the country of purchase. The VAT amount is recalculated from the TTC price.

2. Active CBT: Connection to multiple eBay sites.

The eBay module is connected to 3 eBay accounts (same example: eBay US, eBay France & eBay IT). The products are presented on the 3 eBay accounts (FR, US & IT) with a different tax price per country: in each country, the price displayed is the price calculated by PrestaShop for this country.
