How do I change shipping and tax for international customers

How do I change shipping and tax for international customers


We have a German based multilingual website serving domestic and international customers. Domestic customers pay a set amount of shipping and tax which is reflected on the cart page and the confirm page (I am thinking of taking these amounts of the cart page).

Depending on which country is selected, the customer gets redirected to the respective success page (domestic or international) from the confirm page.

Instead of redirecting the customers from the confirm page, I would like to redirect them from the checkout page (that way international customers would not have to confirm taxes and shipping cost that don't apply to them).

The redirect on the confirm page is set up in the store cart details behaviour like this:
$WA_redirectURL = (((isset($_POST["shipping_country"]))?$_POST["shipping_country"]:"") == ' Deutschland')?"checkout_success.php": (((isset($_POST["shipping_country"]))?$_POST["shipping_country"]:"") == ' Germany')?"checkout_success.php": (((isset($_POST["shipping_country"]))?$_POST["shipping_country"]:"") == ' Allemagne')?"checkout_success.php": (((isset($_POST["shipping_country"]))?$_POST["shipping_country"]:"") == ' Alemania')?"checkout_success.php":"checkout_success2.php";

If I applied this code to the checkout page, how would I have to wrap it?

Could someone help me with this?

To make things a little more complicated, we also have a branch in Canada. In Canada every province has different tax rules, and some customers are tax exempt. Can eCart accommodate that?
