So I am wondering.... Where are people located. Are there
locale-specific issues you are facing? If so, what are they?
"Issues" are basically tax and procedural kind of issues.
Some things are pretty easy to work around and basically involve better
default setup of the system for the UK (nothing rocket science). Others
are a bit more difficult such as the current VAT system not *quite*
compliant with what we have over here. Invoice printing is also
slightly non-compliant and at least in SL it can't *quite* be made to
print a completely legal invoice (but it's good enough for most people...)
There are some niggling issues which can be worked around such as VAT
rounding the wrong way occasionally. Also tax being tied to the
customer or the "part", whereas for most jurisdictions it's based on the
delivery address, etc.
Also I noticed that it's not easy to handle second hand sales where the
VAT is based on a margin basis, ie you pay tax only on the amount of
profit, not on the total sale price
Nothing major for the UK, but it would be nice to get some of the above
smoothed over a bit.
