Best Shopping Cart Webware

As most shopping carts are not mobile friendly, it is not an exaggeration to say that ours is the best available for small businesses in the United States. While most of our original webware is global in scope, this product is limited to American website owners.

It is intended for shopping websites that sell tangible products to be shipped, with a shipping origin point within the 48 contiguous United States, plus Alaska and the District of Columbia.

Trillium Shopping Cart can be installed as an integral part of a new shopping website; or as an add-on to an existing one. It is mobile friendly and feature rich. Zooming and horizontal scrolling are not required in portrait orientation on popular smart phones (but are required in landscape orientation). As with all Trillium webware, the user experience is simple and elegant both for you and your customers.

CCSZ Service

Sales tax management for online stores is not as simple as it once was. Online stores can no longer charge just one flat sales tax rate on all orders being shipped to destinations within their own state, omitting tax elsewhere. There are thousands of state and local taxing agencies in the United States, and they are all clamoring for their cut of growing online sales. Despite a tax reform movement lead by state governments, there is not yet any nationwide standardization in sales tax collection rules, nor any online support services to enable collection of uniform nationwide sales taxes accessible to small businesses.

So the prevailing sales tax rule practicable for small businesses is the one set by the US Supreme Court in 1992, “Quill vs. North Dakota”. (Please see your CPA or tax attorney for details.) Our shopping cart provides full support for sales tax collection and remittance under “Quill vs. North Dakota” rules, making collection and remittance of sales taxes as easy for you and your customers as it can be, while ensuring compliance with these complex rules.

Your primary “nexus” is your shipping warehouse or point of origin. Additionally, if you have “nexus” elsewhere (which could mean a home, vacation home, second warehouse, etc.), these taxing agencies may place liens against your properties for failure to collect sales taxes in secondary localities, too. Even if you have only one nexus, you still don't collect city and county sales taxes from customers across the state (only in your own locality), so it's appropriate to keep track of each taxing agency separately for both collection and remittance purposes, which—after initial configuration—our webware does for you automatically.

Keeping track of localities this way, however, requires an accurate database of every city, county, and zip code in the country. Databases of this type require maintenance, because new cities and zip codes come into being every month. Pay a one-time lifetime CCSZ licensing fee, and you do not have to maintain any database; yet you and your customers will benefit when other Trillium clients and their customers report new cities and zip codes. Your CCSZ license helps cover the costs of maintaining the centralized Trillium city/county/state/zip database.
