Edit Countries


From the Configuration Menu, click Taxes → Edit Countries

On this page, store admins can set up tax rates based on the country the customer registers with. Taxes can also be based on the state or the zip code customers specify.

NOTE: If multiple levels of taxes are set up (ie state and zip code), the customer will be charged the cumulative amount.

To change the tax rates for a country, click the Edit button next to the line you wish to edit, enter the desired values for each column, and click Update to save the changes.

Adding a Country

The store comes preloaded with a list of the countries that do the most online business, but does not contain every country. More countries can be added, by clicking the 'Add New' button.

NOTE: The list of countries on this page is what is used to generate the Country dropdown menus customers see when creating addresses on the front end. If you need a new country to appear there, add it here. If you want to remove countries from those menus, delete them from this page.
