Other related discussions, like this one
, have brought up questions specific to Canadian stores but I'm still confused as to a yea/nay. A direct question may help me and other Canadian based persons. Even if the answer in some cases is initially no, I hope by the end of this thread they'll have all changed to 'yes'. Fact is I think Foxycart is great and it would hurt my feeling if I couldn't use it!
Sales Tax: It looks like canadian sales tax calculations can't be done sufficiently at this point, meaning Canadians can't use Foxycart - true/false?
I'm lucky because my store is based in Alberta, which (if I understand correctly) means I only need to worry about changing GST to everyone, which wipes out a bunch of complexity. So for me, I *think* I can skirt this one at the moment. Am I right/wrong?
Shipping: What are the options for shipping from and within Canada? At the time of this posting, it appears that UPS *may* be the only "live shipping rates" option for shipping in Canada. But there seems to be confusion on this (as discussed in this thread
) as to prices being US or Canadian, or if its accurate.
So, It appears then that canadian stores can only offer a flat rate shipping? If flat rates are the only option, can we offer multiple flat rate options? E.g. radial/checkbox to choose "Canada Post: $15.00" or "Currier: $30.00" (i.e. FedEx, UPS, etc)?
