With the move to our new PayPal payments solution, there is no longer a need for seller invoices. Previously, sellers could use these invoices as a detailed breakdown of their transactions from the past month. We are now offering a new functionality that allows sellers to access much of the same information. This .xlsx file includes the amount of tax assessed on the order, the amount of tax assessed on the Discogs sales fee (VAT, GST, or JCT), and the Discogs sales fee itself.
From the Export page, click on the dropdown menu under “What to export”. At the bottom of the list, you’ll now see “Monthly Platform Fee Statement” and “Marketplace Transactions”. For tax filing purposes, please be sure to select the option “Monthly Platform Fee Statement” and not “Marketplace Transactions“. This will give you a much more detailed breakdown and should meet the requirements of your local tax authority.
Clicking on this will make a .xlsx file available with the following information: Statement Date, Statement Period, and Statement Number, as well as both relevant Discogs and Seller information.
Additionally, you can find this information, including totals for all amount-related data. See the table below for a description of the columns.
Note: These headers are all available in the CSV version of the export. The Monthly Platform Fee Statement includes the most important columns as well as totals for amount data.
