Marketplace facilitator orders

If your organization is designated a marketplace facilitator by a taxation authority, then when you use the orders API to create orders, you can either:

  • Allow the Toast platform to calculate and populate the item prices and tax amounts based on the restaurant configuration.

  • Submit the item prices and tax amounts. You typically use this option if you have a tax partner that calculates the tax for you.

    The prices that you provide should match the menu prices from the restaurant configuration.

In both cases, you also indicate whether you collect and remit taxes on behalf of the Toast restaurant. Restaurant employees use Toast platform analytics and reports to get information about the tax amounts that a marketplace facilitator paid on their behalf.
