Configure your Braintree account


Once you’ve finished the Anrok & Braintree integration process, there are still a few additional steps you’ll need to complete within Braintree before you can start creating and editing invoices. This will ensure that your Braintree account has been properly configured for tax calculation.



Create a “Sales Tax” add-on

A “Sales Tax” Braintree add-on is required to manage sales tax on subscriptions. When creating a subscription in your checkout flow, override this add-on’s amount on your subscription with the sales tax amount calculated by the Anrok API.
