Avalara tax calculation API call

This topic describes the Avalara tax calculation API call elements.

Method: Real-time call Avalara API

B2B Commerce Cloud will make a real-time call to the Avalara API during the transition between the Addresses Page to the Review and Pay Page, but only if the Order Simulation call is bypassed or not made. This will allow B2B Commerce Cloud to display a tax quote to the user before finalizing their checkout process. The call to Avalara will only be a quote call; nothing will be written into the Avalara system.
