I'm a new Shopify store owner, and that's a problem I'm having too with shipping calculation. Shopify automatically entered my address as the "shipping from" location after my registration. When I tried to change it to one of the suppliers, irobotbox on the oberlo app, and only the city / country / postal code fields, I couldn't find all the information for irobotbox on their aliexpress store. With only the city and country info, I tried to save it anyway, and it reverted back to my address here in the US after I left the page. I haven't marketed my store yet because I'm trying to figure this stuff out before I really open it. This is basic functionality that needs to be set in place prior to signing up for Shopify:
A dropshipping settings page that has built-in postal code sales tax rates. Those rates are determined during checkout after a shipping form is filled by the customer. The rates are figured into the total cost of the order, and a record of the data is passed to me (vendor) and the supplier who is shipping the order. It would facilitate smoother, faster transactions and data upkeep, and probably result in far less returns / refunds, and even be a deterrent to lawsuits and future tax / shipping mishaps and/or horrible new tax laws (small to giant business).
