Hello everybody,
I´m a little lost setting up the GlobalTaxModifier. I can´t find any documentation about that.
I want to be able to have different tax rates, based on the country that the users selects for her address.

I added the modifier to Order class in my config.yml:

Order:
  modifiers:
    - 'GlobalTaxModifier'

Then I tried to setup my tax rates per country by adding the following t the config.yml:

GlobalTaxModifier:
  country_rates:
    Switzerland:
      rate: 0.08
    Germany:
      rate: 0.19
    Austria:
      rate: 0.20
  defaults:
    Rate: 0.08

But every order jus uses the default Rate of 0.08.

How is the GlobalTaxModifier picking up the country to assign the correct value? Is that done via the CountryDropdownField in the order process - where the user selects one of the allowed countries?

Can somebody provide me some info about setting this up correctly?
