I have been having ongoing difficulty in setting up the ecommerce module.

My clients wish to add tax to their orders and so i added this snippet of code word for word from the ecommerce documentation to the mysites/_config.php:

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

However I get this fatal error:

Fatal error: Class 'TaxCalculator' not found in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 38

Why does it not work!!?

If i put:

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

the fatal error goes but nothing seems to happen

Help please

Ok i still have had no luck with implementing the TaxCalculator.

The only workaround that I can think of now is to include tax in the prices and then show the net prices in the product description.

Unless someone knows otherwise.
