Easy Digital Downloads version 1.3.3 was released early this morning and brings an entirely new system for collecting sales tax. Along with the taxes upgrade, a number of significant bug fixes were implemented and also several other improvements across the plugin.
The tax system will now allow you to apply a set sales tax percentage on all purchases. You can choose whether to apply tax to all customers or just those in your local area. A new reports page has also been added for calculating year-end sales tax totals:
Full list of changes below:
  • Added new Tax system for calculating simple taxes on purchases

    Hi Pippin & Team,

    thanks for the update. Just a minor issue. The update changed the price-formatting on my store pages (using re-stored theme). Prices are displayed in a bigger font-size and don’t match the boxes anymore they should fit in.

    Oh and btw. how did you display the Discount message on the EDD-page? I like that! 🙂

          Thanks. That’s actually caused by the theme. Luckily, Jake (the theme developer) is sitting right next to me and he’s going to send out an update for you.

    When I use a discount code the tax is still on the full amount instead of the discounted amount. Is there an easy way to fix this?

    1. Pippin Williamson

      I think that’s a bug. Are you seeing the amount on the checkout page? If you go ahead and place the order, which amount is the tax based off of when you go to “View Details” in the Payment History?

        Here is what the Paypal checkout says:

        Descriptions Amount:
        ABC Get Fit: Home Workout 1
        Item number: 73517b7743d731c461132946a3c7619f
        Item price: $0.95
        Quantity: 1
        Item total $0.95
        Tax $5.19
        Total $6.14 CAD

        Here is the Payment Details on the order:

        Discount used: ABCDISCOUNT
        Subtotal: $0.95
        Taxed Amount: $5.19
        Total: $6.14

        Thanks for looking into this.

        Ok thanks. That is definitely a bug. I’ll add it to the list and get it fixed up as soon as possible.
