First I want to thank you all for all the great suggestions, tips and ideas that you have been sending to us.
On analysing the feedback from you guys and girls, the issue of how DukaPress handles taxation has come out as one of the main areas that needs to be addressed. We hear you, and we’re now prepared to get our hands dirty and, finally, fix this. Thank you for your feedback!
Here are the features of the new taxation system that we hope to build into DukaPress:
- The ability to turn taxation on or off on a global level i.e. to remove taxes completely from your shop
- The ability to choose whether tax is applied before or after discounts are deducted. This will be on a global level.
- The ability to turn off taxes on a per-product basis
- The ability to set a different tax rate on a per-product basis
Now, the BIG question is, will this make DukaPress taxation work for you? Yes? Good! No? Why not?
Please do note that this represents what we believe will work for the great majority of our users. We choose not to build into the core of DukaPress features that are not useful for everyone, or nearly everyone (we do not want it to be as bloated as other carts out there).
However, please make your suggestions freely as we do listen and we are very eager to work with you to make DukaPress better for all of us. I’m hoping for some good comments to this post so that we go forward together. Thank you!
