Ok so, currently there's nothing on sale on the e-shop in south america, but if i change the settings to north america i get the store and stuff, the problem is that it asks for a zip code, which i don't have, and from what i'm reading, its to factor in taxes...

Can someone explain this to me... we don't deal with zip codes here :<

Look up a Zip code for the state of Alaska. There are no sales taxes anywhere in that state.

It's more a personal moral belief.

Some zip codes will charge you tax on your purchase.

You might be charged with fraud.

Just saying.

Who's going to prosecute? He doesn't even live on the same continent.
