I made a request about a year and a half ago about this idea
My client needs regional taxation capabilities applied to the billing section of Guru. - I was thinking that we could make the calculations similar to the the the current Discounts/Coupon system, only as opposed to a discount -
allow for a fee to be added - and make it conditional to one of the custom user fields in Jomsocial(in this situation address).
So basically if country & state = (whatever region) then +% would be applied to the bill and display on the final invoice.
Is there anyone at Jomsocial/iJoomla/Joomlart that would be interested in doing a customization, which could easily be added to the roadmap & core software moving forward.
If so please let us know the fee you guys charge... I want to avoid doing this type of customization myself/outside of the main Guru project as this feature NEEDS to be added to the core
To be totally honest - I am astonished this is not on the Guru road map as all other e-commerce platforms have this enabled out of the box.
Please let me know thank you in advance
Thank you for contacting us.
As much as I'd love to help, your request is beyond what we're able to do for customers.
We don't provide developing services.
But I'll pass your feedback to our developer ;)
Hi Micahl - Thanks for the reply
So this has to be added one way or the other- My team can do it, but a core function like this would seemingly be better developed closely with your team.
Can you put us in touch with your dev team to see if we can partner on this function?
We build joomla components, modules & plugins from scratch so it will be no problem to complete, we just want to see this feature added to the core.
Yes, we can add that code to the Guru core! this is clear.
Please use the latest Guru version we released yesterday (have some calendar data picker fixes) and do the code. Then just send me back all the component with some details and where the code was changed. I will review it and if all is ok then I will release it right away!
Thanks a lot for collaboration on this!
We are going to be beginning the customization this week.
Can we PM you credentials for our demo server so you can see how things are coming along.
Also can we get a communication channel open with you in case we have any questions?
I will have the edits illustrated out an posted here later today/tomorrow.
Hi Alin, here are my thoughts on the taxation customization below:
We are going to build this on 1 of our demo servers, and we would like to give you access to both the demo site & ftp so can we pm this to you some how?
1) Create New Database Thread For Taxation
It appears as though the easiest way to make the taxation work, will be to mimic , as closely as possible the current Guru 'Promo Codes' function, beginning with the database structure.
We are planning on creating a new database thread, called jos_guru_taxes, and for the most part mirror the current jos_guru_promos db thread.
The new database thread will include the following database points:
Please check the demo site we have the taxation scripts working
although you asked us to do on v 5.06 so we have some catch up to do with you
my lead developer is right now listing out all of the core changes required to pull this off so we don't get lost
