Best of luck with the website guys - however not including. VAT in the display price is a pain in the neck (you've gotta click on the item)... not good page design.

Keep it simple lads... list the full price (incl VAT).

Thats great, about time. Would agree with mikekilo about the VAT and page design all the same.

Ditto Microheavy; it's about time. Transair are great and all, but the P&P always kills me.
The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no.

It takes time to get a web site right, and I guess we still have some work to do. Adding VAT is a pain, the shopping cart software was supposed to do it automatically but ... :roll: it will now be a huge job going back over every item and adding 21% (there would also be the added problem of reviewing/changing prices at budget time as well).

As for the P&P. This is a difficult one to get right and I am open to suggestions! The original setting meant that I lost of every transaction :( and the latest one penalised the customer. Now I am trying to get something reasonable and I was thinking of a ?10 handling fee with the option of adding additional postage if it went over ?5 (say).

Hello Again,

A quick note to let you know that there is a special offer for groundschool materials with discounts ranging from 10% through to 30% as well as a more reasonable P&P charge (thanks to your feedback). If your school uses materials that are not covered by our discount, send me an e-mail and I will try to do something for you.

Also, in December we will be offering discounts on all Transair manufactured products.
