Hey, it's Daniella from Printful here.
We'll apply VAT to orders that are fulfilled in our European facilities and that have a delivery address also within the EU. You can read more about it in our FAQ on VAT here. In case of any more detailed questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our Customer Support by website chat or email@example.com—we'll try to explain this in greater detail—or consult with a tax specialist.
Thank your answer. I understand why you guys charge taxes.
As taxes are different in every states in the US or in EU (with VAT), I'm wondering how I can charge my customers for the taxes depending on where they're from ( I want to avoid raising my prices the same for everybody).
Anyone has found a work around?
I am also struggling with this. Has anyone found a solution? Basically, need to increase price by 21% just for customers shipping to the EU. Since Printful handles shipping, we can't add it as a "handling" fee. And since we're not registered to collect VAT, we can't add the tax directly and transparently to the customer (which would be ideal).
The only thing I've found are these apps, both of which cost $30/month and are not worth it given our volume of EU sales.

Actually, I think this is the request: Can Shopify please implement a tax setting for VAT to be included in the sales price when customer is in the EU?
