Hi to everyone. I just recently start my dropshipping store in Ireland. 

Can anyone tell me what do I need to know about taxes? 

So far as I understand I have to pay sales taxes for some countries. 


Here is what I did:

I selected countryes where I'll ship my products 

I went to taxes setting

Select (Charge taxes on shipping rates)

Then under that was my Tax rate with all the countryes where I'll ship my products

For every country it was showing (Country Tax rate 0%)

I click on each of them and click on (Reset to default tax rates) after which I got correct % of sales tax for each country. 


Now on my checkout page is showing  PRODUCT PRICE + SHIPPING + TAXES = TOTAL PRICE

So is this right think to do? As well is it there anythink else that I need to know about them? 


How can I know when when my product get deliverd that they won't charge taxes again to my customer? 

I would really appreceate every single help and advice about this case.
