How do I set up a default tax class for new products?

Zen Cart default tax class

Question: Is there a way I can get the system to select a certain Tax class automatically when I’m adding a product?

Answer: Yes - here’s how:

  1. Find out the tax class ID number in Admin > Locations/Taxes > Tax Classes. (It’s the number on the left hand side.)

  2. Go to Admin > Catalog > Product Types > Layout Settings for the product type you’re using (probably Product - General).

Choose Product Price Tax Class Default - When adding new products? and enter the tax class ID number you obtained in step 1 above.

Next time you add a product, the tax class is pre-selected.

Still have questions? No problem! Just head over to the Zen Cart support forum and ask there.
In your post, please include your Zen Cart and PHP versions, and a link to your site.
