TaxModifier? TaxCalculator? Which one? How do you add tax? What actually happens if Tax works? Has anyone actually implemented Tax - ever?

Please answer above questions because it just does not seem to work!

In the ecommerce documentation it says to add:

TaxCalculator::set_for_country("UK",0.175,"VAT","exclusive");

to the config file but when accessing the site it throws:

Fatal error: Class 'TaxCalculator' not found in /var/www/vhosts/xxxxx.co.uk/httpdocs/mysite/_config.php on line 48

In the ecommerce folders under modifiers there is no TaxCalculator but there is a TaxModifier and the site does not throw a funny if I put:

TaxModifier::set_for_country("UK",0.175,"VAT","exclusive");

but nothing seems to happen?

Thanks

Hi,

In the new Ecommerce system, we have removed the code for Tax And Shipping and put them in what we have called "OrderModifier" structure.

To add a modifier to your order structure, you need to execute this code in your _config.php file :

Order::set_modifiers(array('TaxModifier'));

You'll probably want to update the documention on these new features somewhere, Romain.

Perhaps a new ecommerce wiki page, for the new upcoming version?

Help. I just added to config:

Order::set_modifiers(array('TaxModifier'));

and on returning to the shopping cart I get this fatal error.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function IsExclusive() in /var/www/vhosts/mysite.co.uk/httpdocs/ecommerce/code/modifiers/TaxModifier.php on line 64

What is wrong?

Should I still have

TaxModifier::set_for_country("UK", 0.175, "VAT", "exclusive");

in the config file?

Its because you havent defined the function IsExclusive() - check your code.

I got this working, but sending the order to paypalpayment doesnt include the modifier items, how do i acheive this?

hey dont worry, figured it out myself, add this below the foreach for items (this is for PayPalPayment.php)

// 3) Items Informations
...

// 3.1) Modifiers
      if($modifiers = $order->Modifiers()) {
         foreach($modifiers as $modifier)
         {
            $inputs['item_name_' . ++$cpt] = $modifier->TableTitle();
            // item_number is unnecessary
            $inputs['amount_' . $cpt] = $modifier->LiveAmount();
            $inputs['quantity_' . $cpt] = 1;
         }
      }
