[SOLVED] priceDisplay and tax included

Recommended Posts

I keep seeing this around the default theme

{if $priceDisplay} tax ecluded {else} tax included

, but I can't find any setting in the back office that relates to that variable... how do I set it? At the moment, it's set to show tax excluded, I want it to show tax included.




EDIT: Sorry, probably posted this in the wrong area.

Look here:


in frontcontroller, you have the following line:


  'priceDisplay' => Product::getTaxCalculationMethod(),



in product.php there is the following line:

public static $_taxCalculationMethod = PS_TAX_EXC;

(initializing the value to TAX_EXC)


and those two functions:



public static function initPricesComputation($id_customer = null)
 if ($id_customer)
  $customer = new Customer((int)$id_customer);
  if (!Validate::isLoadedObject($customer))
  self::$_taxCalculationMethod = Group::getPriceDisplayMethod((int)$customer->id_default_group);
  self::$_taxCalculationMethod = Group::getPriceDisplayMethod(Group::getCurrent()->id);
public static function getTaxCalculationMethod($id_customer = null)
 if ($id_customer)
 return (int)self::$_taxCalculationMethod;


Doing the work of returning the right value. Apparently it depends on any (previous) customer, what group he's in...


For you to dig some more in this...


My cents,

Thank you both for your answers, but indeed Vekia has the answer I was looking for.


Where can I make suggestions for future Prestashop builds... I would expect to see a default setting for all groups tax setting in the preferences area of the back office.

This is what I came here for:


{$priceDisplay} can have this values:

1 (means Tax excluded)

0 (means Tax included)


The variable is read from an option named "price display" of the group of the current customer.
