Episerver Commerce Purchase Order Conversion Issues (Commerce 11.8.2)


A good while ago I posted an issue I had with Money fields causing issues with converting to a PO and was told that the Purcahse Order classes because they are the old classes do not support it and to use a decimal for the value store instead.

I've just found out that when converting to a puchase order all my decimal values are being rounded and loosing all their precision which is breaking key parts of our calculations...

Can someone explain this or give me a work around other than yet again changing all our meta values to say a short string so they don't loose the precision,.

What are the Order Meta Fields Data precision?  I thought the default was 9 digits.  Could be something in SaveAsPurchasOrder in the SerialiedCartProvider.  Which fields are losing precesion?

Yes I'd suggest to look into the precision of the metafield. By default it's (18,0), so you would need to change it to retain the required precision

Yeah it looks to be the deciaml settings that was the issues, I used the defaults and assumed these would have a resonable scale out of the box (as it's a decimal) and also wasn't seeing any scaling issues with the cart but I guess the serializable cart doesn't care about this? I changed them to short strings in the end and it's working fine now. Thanks
