Problems with Specials


Recommended Posts

I am having problems with the specials area. I deleted the product that was there currently, re-selected a product, priced at ?137.50 in the catalogue, and entered a special price of ?95.00.


While this displayed fine in the admin area, when I look at the site normally as the user would see it, the product is displayed with a starting price of ?161.56 with a reduced price of ?111.63. The 161.56 is 137.50 + vat, but since I didn't enter a percentage reduction for the special price, I actually entered ?95, the system must have calculated what percentage reduction ?95 was of ?137.50 and applied that to the ?161.56 and arriving at ?111.63.


Can someone please shed some light on this?

It sounds like it's just because your prices are displaying with VAT added to them..... isn't your 111.63 the result of adding VAT to the 95.00?


If you have 'display prices w/ taxes' turned on, the tax will be added to your specials also -- you could either turn off the 'add taxes' or calculate what figure you need to enter for your 'special price' if you want it to display as 95.00 (incl. VAT) rather than 111.63
