Integrating with Thinkific

Quaderno supports automated VAT & GST compliance for Thinkific. Any time a student enrols in one of your courses, Quaderno will automatically generate an tax receipt with the correct tax rate based on the student's location. We can even send that invoice out without you having to lift a finger, if you wish.

The only thing you have to do is connect the same Stripe or Paypal account to Thinkific and to Quaderno. That's all.

Each time you process a payment, Thinkific will send the details of the sale to Stripe or Paypal. Quaderno is automatically notified, and we'll send out the final invoice and update your tax summaries.

In the footer of this article you'll find two links with information on how to connect your Stripe or Paypal account to Quaderno.

Billing details

By default, Thinkific does not ask your customers for their full billing address. If you want these details to appear on the final invoice, just follow these steps:

1. From your Thinkific Admin Dashboard, go to Design Your Site > Advanced Settings > Custom Sign Up Fields.

2. Create a field called  Country (for the integration to work, it is important that this exact field name is used). You will also need to choose the field type Country list from the dropdown menu, and set the field as required.

3. Also create a field called Postal code. Indicate that this is a text field and mark it as required.

4. Save your changes and that's it! Thinkific will ask your customers for the country and postal code, and these details will display on your invoices.

Calculating taxes

Keep in mind that Thinkific doesn't allow you to seamlessly add taxes when a customer views the shopping cart. This means that the listed prices of all of your courses should already include taxes. When the final receipt is sent, Quaderno breaks down the price and taxes for your customer based on the country of residence.

If you want to add taxes on top of your prices depending on your customer's location, you can use Quaderno Checkout on Thinkific.
