    When exporting you must choose either Gif transparent or Png transparent. When you choose Gif transparent you will see a square with a color in it....move the eyedropper to the background and it will remove that color. White can be a problem if there is white in the design and that is when you would use a slightly different color as a background.

    I think the problem may be the file type you are saving as, if you try to export as JPEG then this format does not support transparancy, to have transparency you must save as a GIF or PNG as KD suggested in the post above.
