- DEC has three order value adjustment options to help you manage customs values on commercial invoices.
- It is recommended that you declare the total value of the items and that the total of the line items adds up to this declared value.
DEC supports several order value adjustment functions to change declared values based on line item totals, tax, shipping and discounts.
From your eCommerce or inventory platform we will try and import the below fields (if available) to be used in order value adjustment:
- Total Value paid by the customer
- Sub total
1. Set your order value adjustment setting
- Go to Settings
- Click Platforms from the Settings menu
- Scroll down until you see the Order Value Adjustments section
- Select one of the four radio buttons (Information on options available below)
- Click Save
No Adjustments: With no order adjustment DEC will use either the total value or sub-total depending on the platform.
Adjustment based on Total Value: DEC will always take the total amount paid by your customer and use this as the master value. Working backwards DEC then adjusts the item values (on import) to ensure that all items add up to this master value.
Adjustment based on Total Value - Tax: This works the same way as Adjustment based on Total Value, except tax is subtracted from the total amount paid, before adjusting the line items.
Adjustment based on Total Value - Tax - Shipping: This works the same way as Adjustment based on Total Value, except tax, and shipping are subtracted from the total amount paid, before adjusting the line items.
Note: There is also an option to apply the actual cost of shipping (see this article to set this up), if you have this option enabled, then ensure you select Adjustment based on Total Value - Tax - Shipping.
