Till now, I sold my book via Gumroad. They had told me they’d add support for VATMOSS.
So I was very disappointed when I got an email saying that their support was, basically, don’t sell to Europeans(seriously), or get an Excel file with country of sales, leaving you to do all the tax calculations yourself. This is very disappointing, and it means I’ll have to dump Gumroad (as I just can’t sit there doing VAT for 200 countries).
I liked Gumroad because of how easy they were to setup, but now have to find a new seller.
I looked through @rachelandrew list (http://rachelandrew.github.io/eu-vat/third-parties.html) to see if I could outsource the Vat collection.
They’ll probably ask me to fax my company details to them next, or send a horse rider with the contract. “Hear Ye, hear ye, here be thy contract to sell via FastSpring, thou farmer”.
The next one, Avangate, are similar, though they ask a lot more questions for even registering (and again the salesman will all you back), so I didn’t even bother.
In the remaining list, PayHip and Paddle looked the best. PayHip was the easiest to get started with, but don’t offer recurring solutions yet (they are pure eBook sellers). Paddle do. I’ve registered with both of them, as they both look good.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
