We’re currently coordinating with the developers of all our existing and future shipping extensions regarding our next release – which will include better handling of multiple tax classes – great news for areas such as Canada.

And we also hope you had a great Christmas and New Year! We’ll be doing all we can to help you continue to build your Jigoshop business in 2014!
