We want to ensure that any applicable taxes and shipping charges are calculated correctly, and that both the customer and store owner receive accurate notifications about any orders. Be sure to test these processes thoroughly—the last thing you want to do is hurt your business by keeping customers uninformed or by under or overcharging for taxes and shipping.
