Zonos considers an order placed by a shopper shipping and billing to an address in the same country as your business as domestic. Additionally, country groups are considered domestic. For example, intra-EU shipments are considered domestic because the import/export rules are standardized across the entire EU and aren't applied at an individual EU country level. Enabling domestic orders on Checkout will allow you to handle these situations, and can be a good option depending on where your shoppers are located.
