I’m planning on creating a niche eCommerce drop-shipment platform. The suppliers will be from aliexpress and the target market will be USA. I will sort only epacket delivery suppliers. Currently I reside in Europe(Bulgaria) without any registered company.
I have a few questions about taxation and regulation and will be very happy if someone tries to give me some lights in the tunnel:
1. What about the taxes? Do I need to calculate local (Bulgarian) taxes and pay them here (in Bulgaria), or I should calculate some kind of USA taxes and pay them in USA. The goods will not be physically here in Bulgaria. They will be dropshiped from China to USA, so I dont have any connection to the Bulgarian market. The only tax nexus with the USA market is the customer.
2. Do I need to register a company? In Bulgaria or in USA?
3. I am planning on using only paypal as payment option. Would that be ok for the customers? Is there any payment standard for online business?
4. As I don’t have USA address what the return policy would be? Address in Europe for returns will not be OK , I guess.
Sorry for my long message. I will be very happy if someone comments on my topic and gives me some info.
Many thanks in advance
