VAT/IVA - Sales taxes (value added tax)...
In case, in your country, you need to apply a sales tax, please note that the prices you specify in the WebTV are final prices; therefore, for you accountability, keep in mind that -to all effects- is like all prices already include any applicable tax.
Payment gateway fees (PayPal)
PayPal -as well as other payment gateways- applies fees on every sales transaction (check their Website for more info).
Make sure that either:
1) Your individual prices already contemplate the fees.

Here is an overview of the screens your Users (buyer) will see when interacting whith this extension.
On Sale Content (Clips with trailer)
When playling back a Clip on sale which has a trailer/preview, the WebTV will display the trailer with a banner underneath (and a purchase button).
On Sale Content (Lists)
When a Channel or Clip is "On Sale" it will display a "Purchase" button on lists (Clip lists, Channels lists, searches, etc.). The Purchase button will direct the User to the product info or login page (see below).
When an User is not logged in, and tries to access a restricted content which is "On Sale", it will see a login screen with basic information about the conent on sale.
The Product Info Page
When an User is logged in, it will be able to see the product info page. This page contains all information related to the content on sale; additionally, from here it is possible to add items to the Shopping Cart.
Besides the "Add to Cart" button there is also a "Quick Purchase" one. This button is only visible when the User has enough credit to purchase the product, without needing to go through the checkout process.
The Shopping Cart
After adding an item to the Cart, the User will be directed to the Shopping Cart. On this page it is possible to place the Order, remove items and empty the Cart.
Since WS.WebTV 1.7.5+, the recurring payments feature is available for Subscriptions. If the feature is enabled and a Subscription has been added to the cart, the Buyer will be able to select whether to use the recurring payments option or not.
Shopping Cart vs (Unpaid) Order Details
After placing an Order, if it is unpaid, the Shopping Cart will display the Order details page, which is similar to the Shopping Cart but does not allow to add/remove items from it. The Order details page only allows to Cancel or Pay the order.
NOTE: If an User needs to add/remove items from an already placed Order, it will need to cancel the current (unpaid) Order and place a new one.
Shopping Cart/Order Pending Payment Indicator
When an User has added products to the Cart, or has placed and Oder (and it is unpaid), it will see an button next to its Alias (at the top of the page); this button will direct the User to the Shopping cart/Order Details page.
This is the page where Users will find all the information related with their purchases.
NOTE: If an User has placed any order, any time, it will have a shortcut to this page into the User menu (at the top of the page).
Below you will find the purchase workflows for WebTV Users (buyers).
