For digital stuff ... we used to use the scubbly service. And then one day the VAT police showed up and took two months of my income and said there was nothing I could do about it. And all of scubbly closed.
Apparently, most countries in the world do this VAT thing. And it is something like 20% to 25%. And it sounds like you have to fill out a fuck ton of paperwork for every fucking country. So for a $10 item I would need to add on $2.50 for the tax plus $40 for having to fuck with the tax. Making the item priced so high that nobody would want it anyway - so it is just easier to not sell digital goods outside of the US.
If you are angry about this, I suggest that you kick a politician.
Here in Montana, USA, we have no sales tax. (nor VAT). Tax crap is processed once a year with income tax stuff (which, I'm pretty sure, all states also do).

I have I've got an allotment which I have 2 Hugelkultur beds on and use the Ruth stout mulching method. I keep bees on my kitchen flat roof and grow a lot of my fruit and veg. My 3(about to be 4) children all love planting, and growing and eating what we grow. I don't use slug pellets ()instead I use slog gone) and plant more than I need to account for pests etc. I look to chop and drop weeds and share any glut of produce withe the local community via local churches. I'd be glad to hear if there were other permies users close to me.
Regards to all
