Automatic calculation of gross / net product prices

When creating or editing a product in the backend, prices (gross price using net and VAT or net price using gross and VAT) are calculated automatically. Use the symfony command shop: computeProductPrices to recalculate product prices. Please check before calling the script whether your store is a b2b or a b2c store. You can find this setting in the TypoScript constants for your store under:

themes.configuration.extension.shop.basket.displayType = b2c


The symfony command shop:computeProductPrices is called using two arguments:

  • pageUid the page ID where the product entries are stored.
  • direction calculation path. The argument can take 2 possible values:
    • net: Calculates net prices from gross prices and VAT. Choose this mode if your store is a b2b store.
    • gross: Calculates gross prices from net prices and VAT. Choose this mode if your store is a b2c store.


The Symfony command can be called in 2 ways:

  1. Call in TYPO3 scheduler:
    • In the Scheduler backend module click on Add Task (the + symbol)
    • In the Class selectbox select the Execute Console commands class
    • Select Single in the Type selectbox
    • Select shop:computeProductPrices in the Schedulable Command selectbox
    • Click on the Save button
    • Fill out the argument fields and save the scheduler task again
    • Now you can execute the command as a task in the scheduler module
  2. Call in the console:
    • ./vendor/bin/typo3 shop:computeProductPrices <pageUid> <direction>
    • Example: ./vendor/bin/typo3 shop:computeProductPrices 2 gross
