Tax (VATorGST) not passed to 1st page of Paypal


Recommended Posts

I have spent 2 days serching for this and installed the updated IPN package from Judebert dated 6 August. I mentions that is fixes the


"- itemized cart improvement: "Move Tax to Total" now adds a "Total Tax" item to the cart, where it is properly calculated at the PayPal welcome screen"


I installed the mod but the VAt/Tx is still not being reflected on the Paypal Welcome/1st screen.


So for instance on my cart I have

Sub-Total: ?130.00

Table Rate (Best Way): ?2.99

EU VAT rate at 17.5%: ?19.36

Total: ?132.99


When I get to the 1st page of Paypal it has it as:

Amount: ?110.64 GBP

Postage & Packing: ?2.99 GBP

Total Amount: ?113.63 GBP


Therefor it's quoting the product price with no VAT.



The weird thing is that the payment appears to be for the full price. (?132.99)



I do have the Credit/Discount Voucher mod installed and this apparently does not like it if you want individual items in the Paypal checkuot. I have therefore changed it to "aggregate". But it still happens.



Could someone let me know if this is the way Paypal handles this? Is there a fix? Even if someone can confirm that they use the IPN mod and the Credit/Discount and Gift voucher mod and the display is correct?


Thanks in advance
