We have a little problem in our checkout.
We are testing our Paypal implementation and for Paypal orders we want to add a surcharge (3%).
The surcharge should be calculated over the subtotal.
The subtotal: €549,10
€549,10 / 100 * 3 = €16,47
The surcharge should be €16,47 but it is €24,12
What it should be
Surcharge: €549,10 / 100 * 3 = €16,47
VAT: €549,10 + €16,47 = €565,57
Our shop is in the Netherlands, so the tax rate is 21%
€565,57 * 1,21 = €684,34
The other problem
When I was writing this article, I came across another problem. Behind the 4 products, you see another amount. This is the amount including tax. If you add up the amounts behind the products, you get: €532,88 + €23,24 + €90,14 + €18,15 = €664,41
€664,41 / 121 * 100 = €549,10. This means those amounts are including tax. This might confuse customers. Is there any way I can display those prices EX tax?
Anyone knows what the problem might be to those problems?
Thanks in advance!
Hmm, that is strange.
Would you be able to share your configuration settings for tax calculation and the paypal surcharge please?
I can get to the 24.12 surcharge amount if tax at 21% is applied twice to the 3% surcharge so that could be where this is going wrong.
