Debut Theme - Show VAT prices on product pages.

New Member

I'd like our shop to display prices with and without VAT (tax) throughout the store and on checkout: We're EU based but have numerous worldwide customers.

I've gone through the tutorial https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/products/show-vat-prices though this refers to the Minimal Theme and doesnt seem to apply to Debut.

So, it seems possible to do, but can anyone help with where the code is I need to find and replace?

Cheers
Tom

Hi, I have read this tutorial https://help.shopify.com/themes/customization/products/show-vat-prices

but I dont have almost any code on my product page, only about 15 lines. Also I dont find that 

{{ product.price | money }}

on homepage, cart, or anywhere else. What can I do?

This is a big problem for me also, does anyone have any idea how this can be done? Losing a lot of sales because of abandoned carts and the number one reason why: "We didn't expect there to be additional cost when we went to checkout" ... Very frustrating!

This is a massive deal for EU stores using Shopify so I am stunned there is no simple was to do this as with other ecommerce platforms. At the very least, a guide to showing VAT on product pages for a few of the most common themes should be essential.

One option I recommend to my customers is to add an extra currency.

Example: https://uniformsandhomewaresonline.com.au/collections/aromatherapy-personal-wellbeing/products/taiko...

This is an Australian shop so the base currency is AUD, which is represented as "AUD ex.GST" in the currency switcher and GST in AU is 10%. So a new currency "AUD GST inc." was added,  which is basically the base currency*1.1.

It was done by modifying the switcher code and the "GST inc." option is made default.

I guess it's a reasonable solution, because if you're selling only locally you may simply change your settings to not add tax in checkout, but if you're selling globally, you'd want to have a currency switcher anyway.
