Validate The Customer's Eu Vat Number in Shopify by Using
This automation will validate the customer's VAT number saved as a meta field to the customer during creation.
You can now import the ".arigato" workflow file you downloaded into the app.
- Open the Arigato Automation app in your Shopify admin.
- Visit the "Import & Export" page within the app.
- Scroll to bottom and upload your file to import the workflow.
This automation is fired when a customer is created and includes an extra meta field to include their VAT number. A common use case uses a registration form using the Customer Account Fields app, with a VAT text input field. Once submitted, the app saved the value as customer meta and fired the workflow.
The workflow uses the API Net VAT validation endpoint to confirm that the supplied value is correct.
Once confirmed, the workflow can then be adjusted to perform extra steps such as tagging the customer as "validated."
