With the full support of gross prices, Billomat is ideal for the B2C market. We will explain why this was not always so and what has changed in the following article.
In the early days of Billomat, the main target groups were freelancers and creative workers. (Freelancers, agencies, journalists, photographers, programmers, etc.) Only under very rare circumstances, would they work directly with consumers, but rather in the B2B category. Such circumstances allowed for net price calculations.
In the meantime, the target group saw an increase with Billomat opportunities: Online-retailers, specialized manufacturers with direct sales, household service providers, and many others who wanted to bring their product and services closer to the B2C market. And that’s why you needed l a reasonable price such as 1.99 or 9.95 – including tax.
The problem: Since Billomat was initially designed for net pricing, all quoted prices were calculated as net price. Of course, at the end of the bill, the correct gross price came out, but this could lie one cent over or under the physical price.
The Solution: Now, you can decide for yourself, if you would rather use the gross price or the net price. This is found under Settings > Taxes gross net wizard.
Once configured, the annoying conversions of gross prices without tax are omitted from the equation. Billomat takes care of the rest!
