Paddle entirely handles VAT (sales tax) for all digital products sold to countries where this is a legal requirement, eg. EU member states, India, Australia and more.
VAT registered businesses who purchase products through Paddle will not pay VAT if the transaction is cross-border (they do this by entering their VAT ID at the time of purchase).
Paddle acts as a Digital Platform for the purposes of EU VAT. Put simply, Paddle acts as a re-seller of your product, meaning that we can collect the relevant information about your customer, charge them the correct amount of tax, and return it to the relevant authority. No additional work is required on your part.
Every transaction that goes through the Paddle system is allocated a fraud score. The score is dependent upon how likely it is that the transaction is a case of card misuse or fraud. This score is increased by a number different factors including but not limited to; recent fraudulent transactions on the card, recent transactions on the card under a different name, or a number of recent transactions on the same card at varying locations.
If the fraud score is deemed too high, our platform will flag the transaction. For more information on flagged transactions, see here
Beyond this, Paddle also uses various 3rd party anti-fraud softwares to ensure Paddle is secure, and to prevent fraud/malicious checkout activity.

When a customer purchases a product via Paddle, the country from which they are making the purchase may charge VAT. Paddle is registered and able to handle VAT payments for the following countries from the link,
By law, Paddle must apply VAT / Sales Tax to any transaction where it is applicable.
Vendors can choose how they want to handle sales tax in the Sales Tax Settings page in the Paddle dashboard. There are two options available to you as a seller;
- Include VAT in the price (VAT inclusive pricing)
- Add VAT to the price (VAT exclusive pricing)
By setting VAT inclusive prices, the price you’ve input will be the price the customer sees, and the sales tax will come of out this price. Whereas, if you choose to have VAT added on, the % rate of sales tax the customer is due to pay (eg. 20% in UK, 18% in Spain, etc) will be added on top of the product price you’ve set.
Absolutely. In case you are not satisfied with the plugin and it doesn’t suit your needs, get in touch within 30 days from the purchase and we’ll provide a full refund if we cannot provide a solution for you.
