This week I’d like to highlight an integration of the DOTS FastTax Web Service with the Ubercart 6 e-commerce package for Drupal. Drupal developer Ankur Rishi, along with Bob Hinrichs, CTO at ISL Consulting in San Francisco, implemented a real-time tax rate lookup using DOTS FastTax. The module helps Web sites calculate, in real time, the appropriate tax rates for online sales transactions. The code is posted on the Drupal site, under its modules section at http://drupal.org/project/so_taxes. The module is very simple to install and is compatible with Drupal 6 and Ubercart 2. If you are currently using the Ubercart e-commerce package and need real-time tax rate lookups for your sales, give this module a try. It only takes a few minutes to receive your Free 15 Day Trial Key for DOTS FastTax. If you use a common platform, such as Drupal or Joomla, and are interested in using DOTS Web Services to enhance your Web site, please let us know. We offer a wide range of services that can help you validate leads, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and email addresses. We’ll be happy to assist you in integrating our services with your Web site. Thanks for reading! Alex P.
Since the launch of our Service Objects’ new Web site, there are three questions that most customers and prospects still have on the tip of their tongues regardless of their interest: 1) How much does it cost? 2) What is a transaction? 3) What is my login? 1) How much does it cost? a) The price of each DOTS Web Service varies in regards to the number of transactions and the actual pricing tier that it falls under. b) Our pricing is based on volume discount on a Month-to-Month or Annual basis. This choice is entirely up to (you) the client; however we always try to work within your budget. We can also create a custom contract that will allow both parties to be satisfied. c) Please have a look at our Product Directory, which also includes a helpful pricing link for each DOTS Web Service. 2) What is a transaction? a) Service Objects defines a “transaction” as every time you call one of our DOTS Web Services, or ping one of our databases. Even on the odd chance that the call to our services is not successful, you are still accessing our database and it will still be considered a transaction. 3) What is my login? (three part question) a) Website login i) Create an account ii) If you are a current customer and have not created a Web site login you will need to do so. iii) This login is for your use only, each person within your organization can have their own secure login information. iv) Please go to our Registration Page to create your login. b) Client login to check usage You will need two items of information to check your usage: i) The original email used to create your account ii) Your license key c) To check your usage please use the following links: i) Trial Key Usage ii) Production Key Usage Thank you for reading and I hope that I was able to answer your questions.
