Can I manually adjust the currency conversion?

I have a shop and let say there's a product on it for €30. There's a currency convertor but my question is, is there a way that I for example can say that €30 is $30 ?

anyone know how you can trigger foreign currency?

I was wondering if anyone had a quick tutorial on how in shopify you can offer multiple currencies, ideally defaulting to the user's location.  Something that you can switch maybe up top that will trigger a conversion throughout all the pages maybe?

Deducting tax for international orders

Hi there, could someone please help me. I am based in Australia and have to include the 10% tax/GST in the displayed prices. However, when we get an international order it does not get deducted from the price. e.g: We display a tee shirt for $10 (which includes 10% tax/GST). If someone from the states buys the tee it is still showing as $10... but should be $9 without the GST.  Do I need to...

Set Taxes on my store

Hi! my store is www.forb.tv.   I work without a designer (he left me alone). At the moment I have some issues to understand ... one the main things is taxes. If a non-european buyer purchases an item from my store should not pay the Italian VAT, automatically getting a 21% "discount". I read this article: http://support.shopify.com/customer/portal/articles/663599-how-to-show-one-price-wi...

NYC Tax Exemption + Discounts

As listed here, NYC recently changed its tax law. There is a way to get around this, both by making the collection or by going into the individual products and de-selecting "charge taxes". This works for all the items that are under $110. My store has several items that are very close to that $110 threshold and could pass below it depending on what discount a customer enters. Is there a way to...

Hey New York, how do you guys handle the $110 clothing tax excemption?

I'd really like to know how other apparel retailers in NY handle the $110 clothing tax exemption: http://www.tax.ny.gov/bus/st/sales_tax_clothing_exemption.htmFrom what I've read, it looks like I don't need to collect the State Sales Tax, but I do need to collect the non-exempt County Sales Taxes.  How in the world would you do this in Shopify?

Unfortunately, the information you have currently provided does not match IRS records. In order to avoid fi...

I can't seem to get the right answer for this and I need to know how much I paid them each transaction for tax purposes. Any help would be great! And yes, I have contacted them about this but was advised to extract orders. Which I have ...

Accounting Software

I'm wondering what software people use for accounting, and if there are any non-subscription solutions that integrate with shopify?  My store is very small ATM and $20/mos is more than I want to spend for what I need.  I downloaded the trails for QuickBooks and Simply Accounting, but it seems like a lot of retyping to get the information in and I don't need the invoicing or IM features.  Sugges...
