We were developing an e-commerce project for a client. They had many items sold at a discount so their e-commerce system would show a label on how much the discount is in percentages. For example, if a regular price is 100 EUR, and they sell it for 85 EUR, the label automatically shows “15% off.” Makes sense, right?

Then they came up with this request:


Client: We want the label to show a “percentage of the original price”.

Me: - What do you mean?

Client: Instead of saying “15% off,” we want it to say “85%!” Customers will think it’s 85%  even though it’s only discounted 15%.  

Me: So you want to trick them into buying your product?

Client: Exactly!
