First off, Mentora Provides a SaaS iPage hosting service in US, any body is aware of this? Thanks for any answer. Second question.. Hello, friends,.

, I recently would like to make a modulation or install a contribution, which that allows me to take off some percentages of my customer's total price before including with their shipping fee, "AND ONLY" when my customers are from other countries except Canada!.

Is it right that when you charge taxes, you only can charge in the country where you are selling products from????????.

...say I am selling things in canada, so I can only charge taxes within canada???..

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

There are several discount contribs. Some discount by customer others accross the board. I don't know one way or the other if any of them utilize zones to qualify the customer for the discount. Unless someone else knows, you may have experiment with more than one of them..

As for taxation, while it is different in the European Union, in North America it is true that you only tax purchases from your own country (and here in the U.S. only from your own state)..

If your discount question is related to taxes, it would be far simpler to use the built in tax handling capabilities of osc. For more on how to use that go to:.

Hello, thank you so much mike, yes it is perhaps purely for the tax problem, perhaps I will play the osc built in tax function first........sorry, but also would you happen to know if I could also do the same thing as for shipping as well??? Like the shipping is free for US customers and then when they go from checkout to the shipping selection page, there could be a page just showing like "You are qualified for free shipping" something like that, instead of the normal shipping page?????????..

YES!!!!!!!!!! Now only canadian customers will be charged with taxes!!!!!!!.

..................(I know this shouldn't be as excited as it seems.......

)......

Now only this question left to go......

I have given your shipping question some thought. The best I can say, it looks like you may have to get some custom code written to do exactly what you describe..

It might be possible to set up something more subtle to accomplish the overall goal of free shipping to a given country. I seem to recall in the contributions that there is a mod to set up a free shipping option. I haven't worked with it, but if it has the same configuration options as the other shipping modules, then it would allow you to restrict it to certain zones (countries). This would achieve a free shipping option for the countries of your choice, but it wouldn't make any kind of announcement...

I don't know but this sounds a proper way to go now......

I will try it and see how it goes....

Thanks..
