I'm thinking about doing flat rate shipping also... but I'm not sure how to calculate aproximates costs for what I ship for that.. is there a tutorial for that?

Thanks!

Hi,

Destination zones can be used for shipping methods and for taxes. At that you can assign different zones to shipping and tax.
As I see you want to apply the tax to New York only and assign USPS shipping method to the whole USA. In this case, you need two zones:

1. Country USA, States - New York
2. Country - USA

Then you will assign the first zone to the tax rate (in Ecwid control panel, System Settings -> Taxes), and the second one - to the shipping method (in System Settings -> Shipping).
As a result, customers from US, NY will receive the tax rate and this USPS shipping method. And customers from any other state won't be charged the tax rate.
