The e-commerce.

UK VAT and delivery charges


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I thought I would put a post up and see if anybody has solved any problems like these, before I start trawling through the Contributions section to look for a solution.


I am building an OSCommerce store for my charity which sells low cost health development books and other teaching materials worldwide. We have an existing mail order catalogue I need to duplicate the rules for tax and delivery charges in order to keep things consistent. They are a little complicated so I don't know how feasible this will be:


For simplicities sake I will divide up the goods we sell into books and accessories.


1) UK Vat - we need to charge VAT on all accessories shipped to Europe, VAT is not charged on Books delivered to Europe or on books and accessories delivered outside europe.


2) Delivery charge to UK is 20% of total order, minimum amount purchased is ?2.75 and the maximum delivery charge is ?20.


3) Delivery to the rest of the world is 40% of total order, minimum amount purchased is ?3.75.


4) We also have some accessories that have a fixed rate for delivery, ?1 for UK and ?2 for Worldwide.


Please help, I don't know where to start with this...
