Ok, I had a customer that wanted to pre-pay today for their two properties for applications. Since they were a chamber member they got a 10% discount off the price, and also since they pre-pay I give all pre-pays a 5% discount. Now follow closely, or I might lose you:
$28.13 (10% member discount)
$253.12 Total Price for Property 1
$18.76 (10% member discount)
$168.88 Total Price for Property 2
$422.00 Total Price for Both properties
$21.10 (5% Pre-Pay Discount)
$400.90 Final Total Price for both properies
Now this is where it gets confusing. I wanted to show both discounts on the customers invoice. I figure that I should show a 15% discount (10% for member discount, and 5% for pre-pay). But this is the problem that occurs.
$468.89 Total Price for Properties before discounts
$70.33 (15% discount total: both pre-pay and member)
$398.56 Total Price
Now compare the two prices $398.56, and $400.90. What happened here??? How come I can not get the same price when applying the discounts two different ways?
