Re Tax setting and payment information Contributor: Ochanoko/Kawakata / Date: 19 July 2011 / Time: 16:56 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #185 URL

Hi, mayumi!

Kindly set tax rates in [Basic Settings] > [Tax Rates] to calculate the total amount based on it.

Please see the actual status in the PayPal My Account page.

3) Invoice ID in the Order Details page is a unique id that was assigned when the transaction is transmitted to PayPal.

Re Facebook app tabs Contributor: Karl Street / Date: 12 February 2013 / Time: 13:04 (JST/UTC+9) / Post #261 URL

Hi, is there any way to add a tab on your facebook app to show "All items"? or something similar to that.

Currently there are only "New Items", "Recommendations" and "Item Ranking". It seems strange (and extremely time consuming) to add all of our listed products to one of these tabs.

Thanks,

Thank you for your request.

We will consider improving our app to show all items on the Facebook page in the future.
