    Adding sales tax to order form

    Asked by dcueba on April 04, 2014 at 06:44 PM

    How would you make the sales tax a percentage of the order total?  Eg I need to add 9% California sales tax on a multiple product order form?  Further complicating things, 2 of my products should not have tax added at all.  Thanks.

    Please refer also to this guide

    1. -What-is-Special-Pricing

    2. -How-To-Add-Options-In-The-Payment-Form

    Base on your description on what you wanted to do, I think adding special pricing to the items with already a computed value of addition 9% tax should work.

    Please take note that you must set the actual computed price already (orig price + (orig price * 9%)) -- as you cannot use a value in % unit.


    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance to this.
