What is a default shipping address?

You may have specified more than one shipping address in your account information. The default shipping address is the address to which your order will be shipped unless you select another shipping address for this order.
NOTE: If you are going to have a different shipping and billing address please make sure that the shipping address is added with your credit card company as an 'Alternative shipping address.' That is to say, that you have authorized online companies to ship your orders to an address other than your billing address. For any orders that have a different billing and shipping address, our shipping department will call the credit card companies to verify the shipping address. If this step has not been completed, your order might be delayed until we can have this verified.

Why do I have to select a tax zone with my billing address?

The taxes on your order depend on the tax zone that you belong to. You must select the tax zone that your billing address falls in for this purpose. If you live in the USA, the sales tax levied on a customer depends on the tax jurisdiction he comes under. For instance, if you purchase items for use in the State of Kansas, USA, you would be charged Kansas Sales Tax. If you live outside the USA, the taxes you pay depend on the country you live in. The tax zones are the various jurisdictions under which you could fall. If you would like to add more shipping address, please make sure they are added with your credit card company.
