    Price Table Based Shipping, Percentage and PayPal Commerce bug

    I've been working with a site that is having issues where customers cannot checkout. After touching base with Miva Support it turns out that the Price Table Based Shipping which is configured to use percentages at certain ceilings will trigger an error with PayPal Commerce which cannot accept over two decimal places.

    This is what triggers that error.

    Example (this is just the numbers, not a basket/order):
    195.33 (basket total) 0.45 (PTBS rate) = 87.8985
    I was informed

    We consider this a PayPal bug and have filed it with them.
    This means there are no plans to update the PTBS module.
    I'm also dealing with an bug related to vat / non-vat tax issue with another site - again it looks to be related to PayPal Commerce not being able to handle more than 2 decimal points.

    Since these are both known bugs, there's no reason for me to post this info there too.

    Both these modules are included in the LSK. A good developer should be able to easily create versions that produce charges with only 2 digits after the decimal point..

      Understood. That might need to happen with the Price Table Based Shipping module. I was hoping that Miva might have jumped in and offered up a fix on this one.

      There are too many moving parts involved with the VAT / Non-Vat tax issues. From what I understand Germany for a while required tax calculations out to like 5 decimal places - not sure if that still applies. But if anything more than 2 decimal places is required it is going to be the PayPay Commerce module that needs to be fixed. As I understand it, both of these bugs have been reported to PayPal.

          Thanks I had been informed that too, but that it was a PayPal issue and not a Miva issue.

            That's possible, I'm not sure on that, I just asked QA and they were aware.

              Thanks. LOL, has QA seen what else I broke (not PayPal Commerce related)?
