Applying the Fixed Product Tax (FPT) is one of the tax options that is supported well by Magento 2. Unlike other taxes such as VAT or sale taxes that are calculated with a percentage of the order price, the FPT gives customers a fixed number for the tax. Therefore, instead of confuring the tax rates and the tax rules, from Magento 2 configuration, you need to set the conditions of the product attributes. With the help of attributes, the FPT is auto-added to the payment process.
