Am I really EU VAT compliant selling with Payhip?
YES! We know how much hassle VAT MOSS has created for digital content creators and we thought we would do something about it.
What are the changes on January 1, 2015?
From January 1, 2015, suppliers of broadcasting, telecommunications and electronic services (BTE) to customers in the EU will have to account for VAT based on where their end customer resides.
Does it affect U.S. sellers?

What information does Payhip collect?
