Multivendor Marketplace: Digital Storage Plans

You can now manage the VAT (tax) calculation on the commission you set in the app. Simply choose whether you want to include the VAT on the commission or you want to make it exclusive.
You can visit the Invoice Configuration menu under the Configuration menu to configure the settings.
Let’s understand this with an example:-
Tax Inclusive Case:-
Suppose, Product Price is $100. Admin’s Commission is 10% i.e $10.
Let’s say Y is the commission in $10 earned by admin and 18% is the VAT So, now Y + (18% of Y) = 10. This comes to 1.18Y=10 So, Y is 8.47. The commission is 8.47 in the invoice and the remaining 10- 8.47 = $1.53 is VAT in the invoice. This is the maths applied to such tax-inclusive calculations.
Tax Exclusive Case:-
Product Price is $100. Admin’s Commission is 10% i.e $10.
Now, suppose you charge 10% VAT on commission i.e. VAT=10% of $10 (commission)
In this case, the admin’s earning will be $11 ($10 commission + $1 VAT) and the rest amount $89 ($100- $11) will be the seller’s earning.
This VAT on commission will be visible on the order invoice that you send to your customers.
Moreover, a new section is added to the commission listing section in the app.
Add Header & Footer to the Mail Templates
You will now have the option to choose if you want to add header & footer to the mail templates of the mail send to sellers and the customers or not.
