Shopify allows you to collect tax from your customer as you see fit. When Lulu xPress fulfills an order, we must charge applicable taxes for printing and shipping costs, as required by law. You should always consult with a tax professional in your area who can advise you best on how to manage your taxes.


We are subject to the same tax collection requirements as any other retailer. Lulu collects sales taxes and VAT (value added tax) in the following ways:


  • In the United States, sales tax is calculated based on the current applicable rates of the order’s destination, the total selling price of each individual item, and the shipping charges of an order. As of 10/1/19, Lulu collects sales tax for orders delivered to ALL US states EXCEPT the following:
    • Delaware DE
    • Mississippi MS
    • Montana MT
    • New Hampshire NH
    • North Dakota ND
    • Oregon OR


  • Canadian Goods and Services Tax (GST) are applied to items with destinations in Canada. Provincial Sales Tax (PST) or Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) or Québec sales tax (QST) may also be applied, depending on the item(s) and destination.


  • In accordance with the laws governing members of the European Union, we are obligated to charge VAT on all applicable goods or services delivered to destinations in those member countries where thresholds have been met.
