This was a huge miss in BC, and I think it needs to be addressed in Treepl. Other providers such as Shopify, do it the right way.
- Client wants to offer free shipping to any order over $150. In BC, you would just add a minimum order total of say $150, so that when it met that threshold, it would allow the free shipping.
- Unfortunately BC (and in Treepl), this minimum amount includes tax - so, if a customer at a 5% tax rate, spends $145 (subtotal) at a 5% tax = $152.50 this would apply the free shipping. PROBLEM: it technically hasn’t reached the threshold, as the client wanted it to be $150 net (before tax), so the customer is getting free shipping even though their order was less than the $150 minimum.
- For the shipping MIN $ / MAX $ this should be set before tax (SUB TOTAL / NET TOTAL), or at least give us the option to add a toggle/boolean, under the Price Limitations, that says "Apply to Net Total (before tax and shipping). https://prnt.sc/v053ck
I have a rather large client site I have been hesitant to pitch because of this small thing, and they brought it up again in on their site currently on BC.
