Question: Whats a “vat ID”? Something like the UstIDNr in Germany / Europe?
I’d like to be happy to see the following as well:
An internationally WORKING rate-based shipping table! Weight-based, size-based, etc.
All currently available implementations, whether it be free or premium plugins, are next to unusable in countries which actually HAVE a VAT on everything, eg. Germany or the rest of European countries!
To be rid of this issue for a client, I’ve even gone so far to build one myself, using the regular shipping table, and a very simple plugin, which standardises the shipping rate titles and uses them to detect which rates to disable and which one to leave alone. Essentially turning the base contents of the tutorial WooCommerce: Shipping by Weight (Without a Plugin!) into a plugin.
Building this workaround was next to harmless compared with the thunderstorm headaches, aka HUGE PITAs, I’ve been having for ages with self-proclaimed “working” solutions for the table rate shipping plugins … and I tested ALL of them. Thoroughly. Its a nasty mess - apparently when you never have to use constant VAT rates, you are allowed to build those shoddy excuses AND EVEN HAVE THE GAL to charge money for it!
