Miwall Corp is a hybrid B2B and B2C business selling quality ammunition to individuals, wholesale distributors, and law enforcement agencies. Serving customers all over the country – including Colorado residents – they needed a way to manage the retail delivery fees required for Colorado shoppers.
Looking for a reliable, out-of-the-box solution for BigCommerce, they turned to the BigCommerce experts – IntuitSolutions and Ebizio.
The Challenge: Managing Retail Delivery Fees for Colorado Shoppers
Effective July 1, 2022, any tangible, taxable goods sold and shipped via ground transportation to a Colorado address are subject to a flat fee of $0.27 per order. Since this only impacts Colorado shoppers, online retailers need a way to charge the applicable fee based on the buyer’s shipping address.
The Colorado Retail Delivery Fee Requirements were introduced to online retailers with little advance notice. To keep their business aligned with the new regulation, Miwall Corp needed a fast and fully-integrated solution to collect the new delivery fee for Colorado shoppers.
