Vantage and taxes in Paypal
Canadian taxes are too complex to be handled by the Vantage theme. Unfortunately, because of that, I am limited to using Paypal as my only payment gateway. I did setup the taxes properly on Paypal's side and it's working great.
Problem is that even though I'm using IPN and PDT, my orders remain pending because the amounts are different after Paypal applied taxes.
Here's the message I get in admin panel:
Order attempted to be modified, but gave the following errors
Given amount did not match order.
Unfortunately customers don't see their listing (draft or pending) and nothing happens until I complete it manually, which can sometimes take days if I'm away... so some customers panic and think they got screwed... not a good first impression for a site that tries to be professional. Now I believe the invisibility of Pending, Draft and Expired listings is a huge problem with Vantage but already addressed it here: http://forums.appthemes.com/help-usi...-65149/page-2/
But back to my problem, this is a problem that I will face for each and every order since this particular site is a local directory.
Do we really have to validate the amounts matching with Paypal? After all there's no option to change the amount on the user's side. Is there a way to disable it?
