I'm trying to customize the transactional emails for new Order and new Invoice. For "New Invoice" I want to show something like this

For your Order from (date without time in european format) you will find our invoice for the consignment below:

    Totals(incl. Taxes):      € 13.97

            Incl. Tax 1:       19,00%     €0.31     €0.05
            Incl. Tax 2:        7,00%    €13.66     €0.89 

Payable within 14 days. etc etc

So I only want to show the order total including the taxes and the taxes themselves. Is there a way to f.e. get the order object within the email template file, to be able to get all the infos out of it?

You would be better using the Magento settings options already in place for this in the system area of your Magento admin area. So System > Configuration > Sales > Tax > Orders, Invoices, Credit Memos Display Settings

And then edit the settings you want from there. Hope this helps?

  • thanks, this pointed me in the right direction. This way I was able to solve another problem as well. Jul 23, 2014 at 8:55
