Allows customers to see prices including or excluding tax dynamically.

By default Magento allows admin to select whether prices will be displayed including tax, excluding tax or both, however it does not allow customers to change this setting in the frontend.

This small yet effective extension for Magento adds a simple dropdown menu in your frontend allowing customers to change the way prices are displayed in the site.

They can select if they want to see the prices including tax or excluding tax. The selected option becomes persistent while the customer is on the site or until changed once again by the customer.

You can also set tax display settings per customer group. It can be used to incl./excl. tax in price display for each customer group individually.

Overview

By default, Magenot allows for displaying prices including or excluding tax or both, however this setting is adjustable in admin only and cannot be changed by frontend customers. The Magento Tax Switcher extension enables frontend customers to decide whether tax should be included in price display.

 

Key features

  • Allows customers to select whether prices should include or exclude Tax/VAT
  • Allows customers/store owner to share store URL with predefined Tax/VAT display setting
  • Allows tax display setting per customer group

How it works

Customers can effectively browse the site and see prices with or without tax included and this can be changed on demand via simple dropdown added to the header of your site (automatically) or in any other place through XML layout update.

Adding tax switcher to your site

By default, the extension will render the tax switcher select dropdown automatically in the header section of your site. However if you desire to place it on a different position in the theme, this is also possible. There are 3 possible ways to show tax switcher on different places in your design. See below:

  1. 1. Automatic
    The extension will insert the tax switcher select automatically
  2. 2. Via XML layout update
    Add <block type="taxswitch/switch" name="tax.switch" as="tax.switch"/> in your page.xml and/or local.xml as a child block of header or any other block
    Then in your theme templates insert <?php echo $this->getChildHtml('tax.switch') ?>  where you want the tax switcher rendered
  3. 3. Via static block
    To insert the tax switcher via static block, create a block with the following code: {{block type="taxswitch/switch" name="tax.switch" template="taxswitch/switch.phtml"}}

 

Displaying text in pages and static blocks depending on tax settings

In static blocks and pages

{{helper module="taxswitch" method="phrase" params="Text is tax is included, Text if tax is excluded, Default text"}}

In templates via direct PHP call

Mage::helper('taxswitch')->phrase("Text if tax is included","Text if tax is excluded","Default text")
