Adding a simple percentage

    I'm trying to make a simple addition of 12% to my items total.
    Im assuming I make my item (45$) a "Calculation", then I "Insert a Merge Tag" in the formula section.
    I'm not exactly sure what that merge tag should say in order to have the Total field add the 12% and have it show up.

    Any tips...in english?

  2. That is not the easiest way to do it. Please add a product with a price of 45$. Then add another product and make it a calculation (select from the drop down), and in the formula area, insert the merge tags from the down down: for your 45$ product price, multiplied by the merge tag for your product quantity, then add * .12 . That will make this product price equal to 5.40$. Then add a total field to your form and the total should be 50.40$ for a quantity of one.

    This is my merge tag:
    {Leather Gloves (Quantity):2.3} * {Leather Gloves (Price):2.2} * .12

    Here is the form: http://gravity.chrishajer.com/calculate-vat/
