All-in-One Solitaire for BlackBerry Playbook and Z10

After third attempt, I was finally able to release All-in-One Solitaire for BlackBerry.
There were (still not fixed, as BB Vendor support doesn’t reply) some problems filling Payment Info, and there are still a problem applying Canadian taxes (GST/QST) correctly to the game price.
Here is a nice table, I have, on who processes the payment, when you buy something at BlackBerry AppWorld:

BlackBerry Product and Payment Method

Merchant of Record

Digital River

Bango

BlackBerry Commerce

BBOS App World <4.0 (credit card or PayPal)

X

BBOS App World <4.0 (Carrier Billing)

X

BBOS App World 4.0+ (credit card or PayPal)

X

BBOS App World 4.0+ (Carrier Billing)

X

BlackBerry PlayBook  (Credit Card or PayPal)

X

BlackBerry 10 (Credit Card or PayPal)

X

BlackBerry 10 (Carrier Billing)

X

So, while BlackBerry Commerce applies Canadian taxes with no problems, both Digital River and Bango don’t apply anything.
I’m now trying to contact them to solve this problem, if it’s actually a problem, cause they might be not required to do that.

UPDATE:
Reply from Digital River:

Please be reassured that you are not liable for collecting GST/HST on your app sales. From a legal standpoint, BlackBerry is the retailer, so they’re responsible for any sales tax.
