PayLink Learning Center

Creating Tax Rates

last updated May 5th, 2021


If your products require taxes, you’ll first want to create a Tax Rate in PayLink, after which you can assign to individual products.  When a customer makes a purchase, they will automatically be charged for the product + tax.

  • Note: multiple taxes can be assigned to a product, which is useful for applying special taxes to items (e.g., Recycling Fees).



The links section represents how many products the tax rate is assigned to. For example, “10 links” means that the tax rate is assigned to 10 different products, and “0 links” would indicate that the tax rate is not currently applied to any products. 

How to create a Tax Rate

   1. Once logged in, navigate to Products Tax Rates.

   2. Click on Create New.

   3. Enter a new name for the tax. 

  4. Enter a percentage. 

  • NoteIf you’re using room service and you‘d like to make the service charge fee taxable, then select the  Apply this tax to surcharges checkbox. 

  5. Click the Create button.

Your new tax rate will be displayed on the page at Products  Tax Rates
