The commands in this section are used to define the parameters for currency, VAT and coupons for the E-commerce Cart.

The following options are available for the Currency Settings:

Currency: you can specify the currencies that will be accepted in the shopping cart. A drop-down menu shows a list of currencies: click on the button to open the Currency List window and edit the list.
Price Format: you can define how the products' prices are to be written. Click on to open the Price Format window, which gives the following options:
Decimal places: this defines the number of decimal places to be shown (from 0 to 3).
Digit grouping: this indicates the separators for thousands and decimal places.
Decimal separator: this defines whether the decimal separator is a full stop (for example, £1.00) or a comma (for example, £1,00).
Show Currency on the right: if you select this option, the currency symbol is shown to the right of the price (for example 100£ instead of £100).
Leave a space between currency and price: if you select this option, a space is included between the currency symbol and the amount (for example 100 £ instead of 100£).
Show zero as: this option defines whether the zero is to be indicated as a number (0) or by the - symbol.

The following options are available for the VAT settings:

Type: this option defines if the prices reported in the shopping cart are VAT included or excluded, or if the VAT isn't present.
Settings: you can set the different kind of VAT rates which can be applied in the shopping cart. By selecting the button, you can open the VAT Settings window which reports the Product Groups for the different VAT rates as well as the following options to manage them:
Add: you can add a new Group on top of the default one.

The Default Group is automatically created according to the software installation language: for instace, 22% if you selected Italian. This Group can be edited but not removed.

You need to report a Group for each VAT rate you want to apply to your shopping cart: for instance, provided that the products whose VAT rate is 22% already have their own Default Group, if you have Products for which you need a 10% VAT rate, you will need to create a new Group for the 10% VAT. the Group which is added to the list can be defined with the options available in the Settings window.

Remove: remove the selected Group from the list.
Duplicate: duplicate the selected Group. You should duplicate a Group only after having defined alle the settings, so that afetr having duplicated it you just have to edit the necessary entries.

Once you added and selected a Group, you need to define its settings:

Add: open a dialog window on which you can report the tax name (for instance, IVA, VAT, TVA, etc.), the rate (for instance, 22%) and possibly and for the  Pro edition only, the list of Countries it should be applied to (for instance, Italy).

Still working with the  Pro edition, you can add more settings set for each Group. So, for instance, if an Italian online shop sells in France as well and exceeds the €10,000 threshold, you can report both "IVA, 22%, Italy" and "TVA, 20%, France" for the same group. In this way you will be able to comply with the new EU regulations introduced in July 2021 and apply the French VAT rate for the purchased coming from this country.

You can also report more taxes for a single nation within the same Group, so they can be  added up.

Remove: remove the selected settings set so to remove the tax from the Group.
Edit: open the dialog window so to edit the tax you selected among those reported for a single Group.
Default: set the selected tax as "default". The tax you set as default is the one which will be applied if the customer chooses a Country which isn't available among the ones you manage.

With the Evo edition you can create more groups and set a tax name and a rate for each, but you can't select the Countrues the tax should be applied to nor report more tax rates for the same Group.

The following commands are available in the Options section:

Allow minimum order value: if you select this option, orders for less than a specified minimum amount will not be accepted.
Minimum total amount: this option is available if Allow minimum order value is selected. You can define the minimum total value that the order must reach to be accepted.
Activate discount on Order total: it activates one or more discounts, even with Coupon Codes, which Customers can use on the online Cart to enjoy a discount on the total amount of their Order. Click on the button to open the Coupon Code window, where you can check out and manage the active discounts using the available options:
Add: to add a new discount/coupon. The newly created discount/coupon will be displayed in the list and can be managed with the options reported in the Settings section.
Remove: to remove the selected discount/coupon.
Sort order: to order the discount/coupon list by a selected criteria.

You can define each discount using the following Settings:

Activate the discount with: it defines whether the discount is based on the order amount or on a coupon. In the first case, you will have to report the Total amount above which the discount will be applied. In the latter case, you will have to report the Coupon Code, namely give the Coupon you want to create a name or an ID code.
Fixed Discount: to set the discount/coupon value as fixed discount on the Order total, equal to the amount specified in the appropriate field.
Percentage Discount: to set the discount/coupon value as percentage on the Order total, equal to the percentage specified in the appropriate field.
Valid from / Expires on: to set the time and the date date, using the given calendar,  to define the period of time the discount/coupon will be active for.
Include Shipping and Payment Cost in the discount: this option is available only if the percentage discount option is active and you can use it to apply a discount/coupon on the Order total, including shipping and payment costs.

How the discount coupons work  in the Pro edition:

You can use an alphanumeric sequence, symbol, a word, or a brief phrase as your coupon code. There are no particular restrictions, but we recommend using simple codes to make them easier for Users.
The field for entering coupon codes in the shopping cart is case sensitive: this means that using capital or lowercase letters will differentiate two otherwise identical words.
When you create the shopping cart, you can define coupons for a discount on one or more specific products, or a discount on the total order. Coupons are not cumulative: only one coupon can be used per order. If the customer has more than one coupon, he will have to decide which is the most convenient to use.
If the order contains Products for which there are active fixed/specific percentage and/or quantity discounts, Coupons for the total value of the order will be applied on top of these previously discounted prices.
Enable Facebook and Instagram integration: if this option is active, a .csv file is generated reporting the list of the Products added to the catalog. This file will report only the Products you acactivated the creation of a Product Page and for which you reported the following information: title, description, price, 500 x 500 px image. This file is necessary if you want your products to be sold on Facebook shops as well as with the Instagram shoppable posts. The filed reports the link to open the .csv file which is generated.

After having generated the .csv file, you need to export the Project. Only after the online publication, in fact, you will be able to integrate the catalog on Facebook.
After you update the Products, you need to export the project again both to update the online store and the .csv file for Facebook. The Facebook shop will automatically be updated according to the set schedule.
Update available quantity on order dispatch: if you enable this option, the number of available products is updated according to the orders that have actually been processed via the online Control Panel. Otherwise, this number is updated according to all the received orders, regardless of whether they have been processed or not.

Use the options in the Availability section of the Product Settings window to set up product availability.
