On which attributes does taxes_included apply?

I'm retrieving an order via the API, which has `taxes_included` set to true. The API docs state that this applies to the order subtotal. Does this also apply to the `price` attribute in `line_items`?

If not, how do I know if the price of a line_item has taxes included?

Hi Stephan,

The taxes_included field applies to the line item price, and thus, the subtotal. It simply means that the price of each taxable item includes the taxes. For example:

If a line item is $11, and the shop has 10% tax that is inclusive, the subtotal will be $11 with $1 showing as the tax amount. Whether you look at it from a subtotal or a line item view, it still works out the same.

It would be highly appreciated if this was better explained in your documentation!

It was also not straightforward for us when consuming this data.

 

tnx
