License Types

For sales tax purposes, Louisiana has three different license types. 

Remote Seller: Seller has no physical presence in the state but makes more than $100,000 in annual sales or has 200 or more transactions in the state. This is most common among Shopify merchants.
Direct Marketer: Seller has no physical presence in the state, Seller is not a remote seller or remote retailer, Seller voluntarily registered to collect tax.
Standard: The seller has physical presence (e.g. people, property) in the state.
You can learn more about the license type from the official remote seller site.
