Hi all,
I am very new at OSCommerce and can not figure out which file(s) need(s) to be modified so that a 10% discount is calculated on the total before taxes and not on the total after taxes as it is on my current install. I thought this would be an easy task and tried to locate where the calculation is done in order.php, order_total.php or the files under modules/order_total but no success. I would be extremelly grateful if someone could give me some pointers as this needs to be fixed urgently.

Thank you for any help or ideas,
Freddie

Look for the coupon code component that is freely available.  http://addons.oscommerce.com/info/4269  You could create a coupon code and then use a hidden field to input it at order time.  Additionally look under the modules > order totals and sort your discount in that area if you already use a discount one.  Hope this helps.

Installing the module provided the solution I was after.
