Sunny,

As I understand the rules, merchants are not required to collect taxes in states where they don't maintain a presence. This may change (see a different thread that had Jeff Bezos' name in the title), but at the moment it should still be how it works.

great topic,

for the QA portion, i have client right now that is experiencing problems with the tax rate of the 50 states.  also ensuring that it works if item is shipped out of state.

look for good extensions if you are using magento to tackle that.  
- Logistics - check that the rates are correct with the items being shipped, otherwise there might be need for customization of the extension.

Hi newtechies:

I'm advising an entrepreneur on a new ecommerce startup and I thought this would be a helpful thread for other people starting ecommerce sites as well.

- Are there any things outside of PCI and chargebacks that you can think of that he and I should watch for?
- Any tips/pointers on what to look for when QAing the site?
- What are some other best practices that you can think of?

Thanks!
