Requirements for certify invoice services

Introduction

The certification for goods calculations enables connectors to properly return tax results from Avalara solutions and allows users an easy implementation process.

Below are the minimum scenarios necessary to achieve certification.

Premises

The partner can be certified at any time, but will only be considered "Launched" to the market, after two customers in production using the connector.

The partner will be responsible for support customers in production and give the maintenance of the developed connector.

The partner will be responsible for providing training and a guide to support customers.

To present an SLA (Service Level Agreement) plan.

Present a schedule detailing development times, unit tests, and integration tests.

We inform the importance of our partners complying with the rules and determinations of the General Data Protection Law - LGPD (Law No. 13,709), not disclosing or exposing customer data.
