A lot of the prices at the check out do not match the prices quoted on the site. Otherwise I would have made a few purchases.

For example the 13127 Vizner vase is quoted at 14 euros on the site but becomes 34 at the checkout. Out of four things I chose three of them jumped in price at the checkout.

Also some of the add links actually add other items to your cart!

The price on that vase is €34. Had you changed the display currency (Bottom left, select a currency and hit Change Currency)? If so your cart on the left will show the total as well as prices in that currency. But when you open the cart the price reverts to Euros... appropriate notices do appear when you add to cart and when you open the cart.

No not the case her - tried various currencies and none priced it at 14....

So I tried various list views and found the problem, it is a problem I have to admit as having anticipated it but so far not been able to change it... obviously I will need to try a bit harder. The layout was designed for 90 pixel icons and I used 200 so it stretches the space between the text.

As the image shows in a Rudolfova Hut list view:

1. At top you have description and price.
2. Image is at the right while on the left a big white space.
3. At the bottom left you have the dimensions, a link to full details (and more images), The quantity select (Only 1 of any piece though) and the Add to cart button.
4. Immediately below this is the name and price for the next piece and this is 13139 which is indeed 14 Euros.


If you click on product details you will not have this confusion and can also read the condition report.

You say it is a Vizner, do you have a source for the attribution please. I thought this was one that gets confused with a very similar Vizner. Getting attributions will not affect prices just add to the reference value.

Sorry for not having addressed this problem before opening! :spls:

I still cannot get the text to move up but I have managed to put a horizontal line between products which should make it clearer.

The reason I said it was Vizner was because I clicked on Vizner as a designer and it was the first vase that came up.

I will take another look and see if I can make sense of things now. I am using Google Chrome and a widescreen monitor if that has any relevance.

Edit

I made an error in my original post, it should have read the 13139 Vizner vase. Which explains the attribution confusion, sorry about that.

However that seems to be working fine now. Showing as 14 euros and then 14 euros in the checkout so whatever you did seems to have worked.
