Hey guys, been a while. So basically these days I'm part time Staples worker, part time electronics store owner, full time money maker.
My girlfriend Sierra and I have been together for 2 years, and are expecting our first child, a girl, in May. We're hoping our lovely corgi Zoey and the cats Sébastien and Seymour will love her.
Neither of us have had COVID to our knowledge. I had a sore throat a few weeks back but as soon as I felt a tickle (before it even got really sore) I took some OTC medicine. Stopped whatever it was before it got worse.
Still working hard on my coding. Been working on point-of-sale software for over 3 years now. Once this software is done, I will have what I need to get out of Staples, get funding, and open a store. Sure, I could just use Square or some out of the box solution. But if your Square account gets suspended or terminated, you have 0 access to any features, even the POS for cash transactions. That is why I am working closely with Stripe to create the perfect experience. And if I experience the nightmare that many others do where my Stripe account is terminated I can still take cash and perform sales. I don't plan on getting shut down by them though. I'm very much aware of what I can and cannot sell with their card processing. Most of Stripe's BBB complaints are answered and actually SAY that the complainant was being unethical or using Stripe for non-approved services/products.
I've already integrated stripe for my site, www.xbit.llc. The POS will use a countertop card reader certified by Stripe that I can communicate with over the web with PHP. This POS will be great though. I'm nearing completion once I figure out how to do math....Maybe someone can help?
You go to do an exchange at a store. You bought an item for $1. With PA tax it's $1.06.
To keep things simple, say you exchange the item for a different one that is $2.
I was told by a friend to apply refunded sales tax to the subtotal for the new purchase.
So you take the full amount for the original purchase, $1.06 and subtract it from the new $2 purchase.
So $0.94 for the new item. Apply new tax on the $0.94. $1.00. That is what is currently happening in this screenshot: https://imgur.com/a/f1nIgtp
But if I add a coupon for 20% it messes with it and subtotal goes down to $0.80 (OK) but grand total with tax is $0.79 lol.
Does this sound right? I have no idea.
