Basically, when applying a coupon, the tax is calculated based on the initial amount, not the discounted amount, which is wrong.

Also, when entering the coupon code at checkout (public cart), it automatically sends the user to the next screen (address or whatever), which does not give the user a chance to see the discount be applied and see the amount they have to pay.

Maybe add a button “Apply Coupon”, update the info on that page, but don’t skip to the next step.

Secondly, that page needs to have a better breakdown of how the coupons impact the items in the cart (since more than one coupon is allowed to be added)You should have it as

item 1 original price ….. xxx

Coupon XYZ 5% OFF

item 1 subtotal ……. xxx – 5%

Similar breakdown for item 2,3,4 etc.

Subtotal…………………… $$$

Tax………………. $$ (applied on subtotal above)

Total …………………………. subtotal + tax.

Thanks,Sebastian

Hello Sebastian,

There is already a config variable at

Corals/modules/Ecommerce/config/shoppingcart.php

called ‘discountTaxable’ and its setup by default to false, which means doscounts wont be included in the tax

for "Apply Coupon". Thank you for suggestion, we will pass it to the dev team and add it to the backlog
