MarketPress Pro. When you have VAT inclusive prices, why doesn't it send the VAT value to PayPa

When you set up a product with a VAT inclusive price, it correctly shows the VAT (taxes) on the checkout page before you go to PayPal. When you go to PayPal purchase screen it doesn't show the VAT - just the total price including the VAT.

If you have VAT exclusive pricing. It shows the VAT on the checkout screen and then shows the VAT in PayPal purchase screen.

Why is this?

    Hi there @david

    I hope you are well today and thank you for your question.

    With inclusive VAT, PayPal doesn't break that down on the checkout like MarketPress does as it's all within the one price and doesn't show the breakdown of VAT with the purchased items, if that makes sense?

    But then when it's exclusive of VAT the price that is, PayPal then treats the VAT as a separate item if that makes sense? So then you have, product + VAT, rather than just product inclusive of VAT.

    So basically the VAT amount on inclusive VAT isn't passed to PayPal to display as a separate item.

    Thank you!

    Kind Regards
