Hey Everybody!
I am extremely new here, first of all, and I intend to start out selling items online using the dropshipping method. I have read several of the entries about all the methods of selling and I feel that this method best for me.
My question is about sales taxes. I have been advised by some sites that I need to set up sales taxes for every zone I intend to ship to. Is this correct? I live in Alabama and I plan to start by only shipping within the Continental U.S. only. Then later, once I get more aquainted I will expand into other areas. If anyone can help me out here I would really appreciate it. I want to get as much right as possible to start with so that I will have fewer problems, especially costly ones, in the future.
And I have to say that I have been so very pleased with the customer support from the Salehoo staff. They have answered my emails so much more quickly than I ever could have expected. I am really glad that I chose to sign up with Salehoo!
Thanks again!
