I am setting up a shopify site to sell products in the US. I am an Australian Business. How do I set up my tax settings?

Unfortunately, if you choose "my prices include taxes" in order to sell in Australia, then Shopify can't presently remove the Aussie GST from the export price to the US or other country. We sell in Aust, but want to sell internationally and its a huge flaw in Shopify. Look at other platforms.

Thanks for your reply .
I send products from China factory to US fulfilment house and then sell in the US.
Currently I use Amazon FBA.
I am an Australian and I run my business through an Australian Family Trust.
Are you familiar with bigcommerce?

In that case, Shopify could work for you as you just need a US shopfront. It was programmed by Canadians, so they have it working ok for a jurisdiction where sales tax is added on to the price. It's just for jurisdictions where the advertised price has to include the tax where it fails.

We're an Aussie clothing retailer, we sell in Aust and now in NZ. But the problem is that Shopify can't take off the Aust GST on sales to NZ or elsewhere. Very frustrating.

We're looking at migration options, BigCommerce included, but not yet familiar enough with it yet.
