Edit Countries

From the Configuration Menu, click Edit Countries 

On this page, store administrators can set up tax rates based on the country with which the customer registers. Taxes can also be based on the state or the zip code customers specify.

If multiple levels of taxes are set up (e.g. state and zip code), customers are charged the cumulative amount.

 

To change the tax rates for a country, click the Country name, enter the desired values for each field, and click Save to save the changes.
  
  

Adding a Country

The store comes preloaded with a list of the countries that do the most online business, but does not contain every country. More countries can be added, by clicking the Create button.

The list of countries on this page is what is used to generate the Country drop-down lists customers see when creating addresses on the front end. If you want to enable customers to choose a new country, add the country on this page as shown below. If you want to remove countries from your site's drop-down lists, delete them from this page.
