Complicated Question for the prices in the front
« on: April 05, 2017, 15:35:30 pm »
Hi guys,

VirtueMart 3.0.18, Joomla 3.6.5, PHP Version 5.6.30

at the moment we have enabled in the vm configuration

Baseprice with Tax, but without discounts
Final salesprice

and we have

rule for tax
rule for discount
rule for profit markup


The problem is that my client wants in the front in the (deleted) Baseprice with Tax, but without discounts field when he has the rules for profit markup enabled the change in the price to be shown only in the Final salesprice field and NOT on both fields.

I hope u understand what we want to achieve here.

I mean to have in the front 2 prices as it is now , that is
1. the deleted one which it will have the Baseprice with Tax, but without discounts and without the profit markup as well (here is the problem)
2. the Final salesprice with the tax , the discount and the profit markup (this is ok)

is this possible??

Please some help guys we dont know what to do  :'(


Thank you in advance

The problem with this pricing plan is that the modifier for profit markup is automatically applied to the cost price of a product to give the base price. Then tax would be added to that base price. You cannot show that price without it already including the profit markup.

So instead of using the profit markup rule you may have to use 2 tax rules. I don't have time to play with this, but it certainly is a strange business model.

Thank you  jenkinhill for the quick post,

when you say 2 tax rules

you mean,

1. 1st tax rule for the normal VAT percentage
2. 2nd tax rule for the profit ?

so this can be accomplished by adding a new (2nd) price in the Product pricing?

1. the first pricing will have the 1st tax rule for the normal VAT percentage
2. the 2nd pricing will have tax rule for the profit ?

please advise

thank you in advance
