    This was a suggestion by @Brett Chitty

    Essentially we want that when selling to members from countries which require international sellers to collect VAT, the vat tax should be added to the sales amount.

    This feature is under active consideration and may be released in an upcoming version of PemBer.

    To achieve this, we need

    1> Know the buyer's country
    2> Know the VAT rate for that country.

    For 1, we could potentially do GEOIP based targeting but that is prone to error and also buyer may be buying from a separate country. It is not really a good idea. The only other alternative is to ask the user his country, which would mean adding one extra step when the user clicks on "Buy Now" for buying a product.

    For 2, we can either create a new feature in PemBer which allows us to define VAT rates for countries or alternatively let paypal auto calculate VAT for us on checkout. That would be simpler. This video shows very well how to add VAT rates in your paypal account.
