Briefly, the basic concept is that the merchant system calls out to our system to post sales transactions and get back the tax amounts. The method of communication is a simple HTTP POST request, where you send an XML payload (using the Exactor XML schema) containing the transaction data and receive an XML response that contains the tax data. At the end of each period, we automatically generate the returns for all of the states where there are obligations. You can have multiple points of integration where Exactor touches the transaction, such as at the order management system or the Shopping Cart level; the system Invoice level, or bulk uploads etc.
