How to Display Part Prices with Tax

We are using Netpoint to setup an ecommerce site in Australia for Australian consumers. Here in Oz, we have a Goods and Services Tax (GST) on most items and services sold, and end consumers are used to seeing and being quoted prices inclusive of tax (in our case GST). It appears that netpoint by default shows all part lists and detail pages with prices exclusive of tax, and then adds the tax as a lump sum to the order at checkout.

How can netpoint be configured to show prices for items and parts inclusive of the tax throughout the site.

thanks in advance for any help

    You might add a control to the page that basically just multiplies the shown price times 0.18 then some text to say, "Price includes GST"

    Partdetail.aspx, and partlist.aspx display item prices, so you could hide the control that is autopopulated and write your own that gets the price then multiplies it.

    Then when the user checks out if the taxes have been set on the items and the destination of the order is within Australia, the taxes for the items will be broken out on a seperate line and the items will display the price without GST.

    Just some thoughts, I'm not .Net saavy enough to tell you how to code it 😉

    I think the easiest way to set this up would be to create a pricelist that includes tax and use that as the default pricelist. However, this only works if your situation allows the tax to be the same for everyone .. unless you have B2B customers with their own pricelists after they log in. The alternative will be custom coding to display a new price including tax and hide the price netpoint usually displays but that will require other coding like overriding the subtotals, netpoint tax totals, etc.
