    Default Country selector

    If a customer is outside of the UK then our prices are shown as zero rated for VAT. However, this is only displayed once the customer chooses their delivery region, not something folk generally do until they're ready to buy.
    Is it possible to have a little "Choose Your Country" box in the top banner, so once they select it they instantly see the zero tax pricing?

    Cheers,
    T

    Bluepark does have a drop-down currency selector block (known as 'Location') which becomes available once more than one currency is selected within the admin console. This block can be applied to either the left or right side columns. Is that what you was after?

    We only sell in GBP and don't convert to local currencies.
    That's the kind of thing we're after, but just want it to apply the relevant tax, rather than change the currency.

    We're fine with it being manual: Default to UK, then customer selects the appropriate country from the dropdown.
    This would then be "checked" when they provide their delivery address. eg If someone in the UK selected "Sweden" then they'd see the ex VAT prices, but VAT whould then be applied when they provide their UK delivery address.

    So I contacted BP about this, they said it's something they don't currently offer but if there's interest they may look into it. So if anyone would like this feature, drop 'em a line.

    I'm bumping my own post from a while ago becasue it's something we REALLY need, so if anyone has any further suggestions they'd be appreciated.

    All we want is a drop down at the top of the site: "Select Your Country". When they select outside of the UK the products show with the VAT removed. Thats it.

    At the moment the customer has to put something in their basket and then select the delivery coountry and only then does the VAT get removed, which isn't very intuitive.

    We have regular international sales, but the arse has dropped out of it since Brexit so not worth the time and effort of a seperate site.It's just this one issue of diplaying prices ex vat when required that we need to sort out.

    I JUST WANT A GOSH DARN COUNTRY SELECTOR BP!!
