During Order Review, the total appears at the bottom of the order, with any adjustments for
discounts, gift cards, shipping charges, store credit, and tax. The order of each item determines
the sequence of the calculations, and is set by a number that is assigned to each item. for
example, the Subtotal is the first item in the section, and is assigned a value of 10. The Grand
Total appears last, and is assigned a value of 100. All of the other items in the totals section
are assigned a value between the first and the last.
