Could you direct me towards information about what it takes to make a US software product available and work in countries like Mexico, Brazil, Argentina?

So my company wants to make a product available in Central and South America, and to start with we need to figure out how to deal with logistical issues like:
-collecting payment (both front end like Paypal and back end like what do we do about local taxes)
-csv file exportation when people use commas instead of decimals in numbers
-local helpdesk/call centers for support
-I am sure I am missing issues that I don't even know to think about yet
Are there any helpful resources you can point me to so I can learn more about these things and what other companies have done to make this work?
Websites, books, your own personal tips are all welcome. Assume I am starting from square one.
