Notes:

  • When using Equals as a comparison, values such as Amazon and Amazon.com are not considered equal. Instead use Contains which, with the example of Amazon, would see Amazon, Amazon.com, and Amazon Canada as the same value and apply the rule to all three.
  • If you would like to remove tax from all orders, you can do so with a slight change to your conditions. By changing the comparison to IsNot and leaving the initial value blank, the rule will remove tax from any and all orders that have a value in the selling channel field, which should be all orders.2022-09-23_16-06-38
