Can I sell food at the reduced VAT rate of 7%?
Yes, you can sell food through us at the reduced VAT rate of 7%. The prerequisite for this is that we receive proof from you. This must clearly show that your product can be sold at the reduced VAT rate.
Evidence for activation
We accept the following documents as proof:
the invoice from the manufacturer of the products
a confirmation from the tax office
a successful VAT audit certificate
a customs tariff information for VAT purposes
Example: You buy a food product from the manufacturer / supplier. The manufacturer/supplier charges you 7% (or 10% in Austria) VAT. This entitles you to sell your product through us at the reduced rate of 7%.
How do I enable the function?
1. get the authorisation showing that you are allowed to sell food at the reduced rate of 7%.
2. please send the proof to firstname.lastname@example.org. After successful verification, we will activate the function for you immediately. 3.
You can then select the category "reduced food" in your account under "Edit product".
In order for your account to be settled with 7% VAT in the commission statement, the affiliate commission "Adjusted" must be used in your account under "Edit product", regardless of whether you want to work with affiliates or not. The "slider" should no longer be used.
