Shipping - 'Zone Rate' Blues

Recommended Posts

I'm having a little trouble setting up International Postage rates with oscommerce.

 

I'm based in the UK and have installed a contribution to deal with postage within the UK. Now I'm looking at International delivery. Using the 'Zone Rates' module that comes with oscommerce I set up three zones. The EU, North America and Australia/New Zealand. However, I need to charge VAT on the EU delivery but not the other two but there is only one global drop down selector for all three choices (Tax Class).

 

Is there a contribution that lets you set tax rules for each class?

 

Thanks for any help,

 

Ben.

Hmmm... well I duplicated the zone.php and the enteries in the configuration table so I could setup another 'zone rate' module for the eu so I could set a tax class for eu countries. It worked... However then I noticed some of the countries weren't getting tax charged to the P&P... some were.. some weren't. Then it finally dawned on me. Only the countries setup in with a 'Tax Zone' in the locations/taxes section were getting vat charged! So this was entirely unneccessary and it would appear oscommerce was already sorting it. :(

You would probably need to charge VAT on all P&P, unless you can get P&P VAT free from your shipping agent (who ever they are).
