Product options

Cart products module options

  • Show taxed prices : This option enables you to display either the prices without taxes, or the prices with taxes, or both.
  • Show price in original currency : Based on how you configured your store, HikaShop might have to convert prices dynamically. When doing so, it can add the original price to the converted price.
  • Show discounted price : If HikaShop needs to apply discounts to the prices displayed in the module, it can also show the price before the discount was applied as an incentive for your customers to buy the products.
  • Price display method : When you have several prices in the same currency for the same product, the system needs to decide what to display. That will be the case for prices based on the quantity. Show you will either be able to display the lowest of all the prices, or display the price for buying only one item, or the lowest and highest prices as a range of prices.
