Charge Percentage and Flat Tax Based on Category HELP!!!


Recommended Posts

We have searched the forum and have not found a solution for this problem.


We have to apply a 5% export tax to the whole store. We have no problem doing that. We also have to apply a $1 flat tax if the order contains items from certain categories, like alcohol or cigarettes. If the order does not contain these items then the flat tax is not applied.


For example, our store contains the following items:


Items from category A: Only taxed 5%

Items from category B: Taxed 5% + $1 flat tax.

Items from category C: Taxed 5% + $1 flat tax.


If the order contains items categories A B and C then the customer should be charged:

Subtotal + 5% export tax + $2 flat taxes


However, if the order only contains items from category A then the customer is just charged 5% export tax + Subtotal.


Any help/input/feedback would be greatly appreciated.
