Regulatory fees

Understand how to create and manage regulatory fees.

Some jurisdictions require you to pay an additional fee for certain products. These regulatory fees attempt to reduce the environmental and economic impact of these products.

In the Digital River API, this additional fee is represented by the Fee resource and can consist of one of the following types: battery, packaging, copyright, e_waste, and WEEE.

You're required to know if your product has any required fees and, if it does, you're responsible for creating them. Throughout the process, our Tax and Compliance teams will work with you to manage your product's regulatory fees.

Note: This section outlines regulatory fee management for sites where Digital River is the reseller of record (ROR). If Digital River is not the ROR for a store, creating and managing fees, as well as the legal and compliance responsibilities, belong exclusively to the client, and the contents of this topic do not apply.
