Project Challenges

Ensuring Accurate Tax Calculations and Auto-filing with Avalara

JustFoodForDogs encountered challenges related to tax calculations. The existing Avalara integration for tax calculation was unreliable, leading to concerns about overcharging customers and potential penalties. Accurate tax recalculation during order returns was also a pressing issue.

Payment at Settlement with Automated Returns

The payment process required customers to be charged immediately upon order confirmation, which often resulted in cash flow issues. Additionally, handling returns and refunds was a manual and time-consuming process that needed automation.

Notifications at Every Step of the Order

JustFoodForDogs aimed to enhance the customer experience by providing notifications at various stages of the order journey. They sought to keep customers informed about order status, shipment tracking, and other relevant updates.
