  • admin2008/08/22 21:48:57
    dont forget the cashback is only priced against the unit price ex gst and doesnt apply to shipping or pre discount code etc.

    To figure it out you do this.

    Cashback Amount = cashback rate * (unit price - (unit price * 10/110))

    So you buy a hard drive.

    Hard drive price = $100
    Shipping = $10
    Discount coupon = 5%
    Cashback rate = 12%

    Total Price = (100-(100*0.05))+10 = $105

    To calculate the cashback you need the actual price you pay for the hard drive. In this case you are applying a coupon so you first need to multiply the hard drive price by the coupon $100*0.05, which is five bucks. That means your hard drive is going to cost $95. Remember the hard drive price includes gst which you dont include in calcualting cashback. So to figure out how much of the $95 is GST just multiply 95 by 10/110 which gives $86.36.

    So the cashback applies to the $86.36.

    $86.36 * 0.12 = $10.36 in cashback so just take that off your total price.

    If your confused just plug figures into the following formulas

    No coupon use this
    cashback amount = cashback rate * (unit price-(unit price*10/110))
    total price = unit price + shipping - cashback rate

    Coupon use this
    cashback amount = cashback rate * ((unit price*coupon rate)-((unit price- coupon rate)*10/110))
    total price = (unit price-(unit price*coupon rate)) + shipping - cashback rate

    looks complicated - its not - just plug figures into the forumulas
