The new 2015 VAT regulations of the EU are tough and Taxamo seems to offer a solution. The way it works is that Taxamo sits in the middle of the chain - between your site and the payment gateway. Taxamo integrates with payment gateways such as Paypal and Stripe.

The trouble is, then, to get CiviCRM talk to Taxamo. I don't know of any payment processor extension for CiviCRM that can do that. So I was wondering if anyone has an idea how to get a CiviCRM payment form work with Taxamo.

Thanks in advance!

P.S. The real need is to be VAT/MOSS compliant. I just don't know anything other than Taxamo that can automate that. If you know, please share.

This would be implemented as a payment processor extension. There is not a current extension written for Taxamo, but the documentation for implementing one can be found here.

They also say (at the bottom of this page) that you can contact them to see about getting plugins developed for additional shopping carts, the "cart" being a Civi payment page in our case here.

  • If you go this route, you may want to consider developing it as an Omnipay extension - this will work with CiviCRM and several other software packages as well! Jul 26, 2015 at 18:45
  • @JonG Unfortunately, it seems like Omnipay doesn't support automatic recurring payments, which is an essential feature in our (and I presume many others') case. Jul 27, 2015 at 10:28
  • @Borislav Talk to Eileen McNaughton - I think she's been working on recurring payments in Omnipay. Jul 27, 2015 at 21:21
