Not to diminish answers here but start with Google search to gov sites that will inform u and also ask seller for what he/she knows about it

U may not need to pay it if buyer maybe he does? It could be 10 scenarios

Good luck.

Hola Pedro,
El VAT viene a ser el IVA. Las empresas o autónomos pueden pedir darse de alta en el registro de operador intracomunitario, o algo así, en la Agencia Tributaria. Para poder facturar a nivel internacional. Con este numero de operador intracomunitario, que es el número VAT que el vendedor te esta pidiendo, y viene a ser el CIF o NIF con alguna variante, no pagas el IVA de tus compras fuera de España. No sé si sólo funciona a nivel europeo, o tambien en EEUU.
Si no eres autónomo o empresa, me temo que tendrás que pagar el IVA de tu compra, simplemente le dices que no tienes número VAT y el vendedor añadirá el IVA a tu presupuesto.
Espero que esto te sirva de algo,
Saludos y suerte
