eCommerce is a growing field. Many eCommerce stores start with a small inventory and they end up being an international brand. But, with the growth of your store, you also have to take care of the tax rules in different countries. For example, right now you are doing business in the USA and you want to expand to India or Canada.
You can’t just start selling in a different country. You also have to set up tax rules according to the country you are expanding in. Every eCommerce platform will allow you to manage tax rules. If you are using Prestashop, it is easier to manage and apply tax rules according to the location of your customer.
