HI BaconFries,

You are a true friend, a brother. Thanks. I did leave the sandbox checked by mistake on those two. However, I just fixed and I still can't select light, medium or dark on the one item.

So I still have a problem.

Thanks so much!!!

I am trying to figure out how to make the shipping and handling work out. I would like for products that are 1 to 7 ounces charge $7.00 for first item and $3.00 for each item after that on same order? for 16.9 ounces will be $13 for first item and $5.00 for each item added on same package?

Is there a way to do that?

thanks

Ok bry lets try this...
In the cart button go to Shipping
Shipping and Handling
Set the Base shipping to 0.00 (This wont be called)
Extra shipping set this to 3.00 (this is the secondry hadling cost you need)
Now we need to add a "New Variable" here we are going to set the "First" handling cost, so we go to
Extra Variables in the Edit Hidden Field we set as follows
Name: handling_cart
Value:7.00
Click ok to close and this will give you the effect that you are wanting. If the buyer only adds 1 item to the cart, the total shipping would show as 7.00, 2 items would show as 10.00, 3 items would show as 13.00 and so on. Hope this is what your meaning....

Hi BaconFries,

I follow you until you say to "need to add a "New Variable" here we are going to set the "First" handling cost, so we go to
Extra Variables in the Edit Hidden Field". I right click on PayPal ADD TO CART" and see under Shipping Base shipping and Extra shipping. But I do not see the others. Here is a snagit showing Options tap open but you can see the other tabs I see. Where is what you are suggesting?

thanks

Does it matter what is written in the variable? Can it be "handling_charge"?

thanks

No from memory it must be handling_cart as this cost of the handing for the cart ie the PayPal button which is related to this line of code from the cart
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value=" _cart">

My image looks different as I am using Windows 7 Premimum.

My client tells me that when 4 items are ordered, it requires a box that cost $17 to send to US. Is there a way to make PayPal charge $17 for 4 items?

thanks

This may be possible but will require programming. I believe that this is something that you or your client will have to setup via the PayPal account. Please dont quote me on this the following is from PayPal themselves looking for •Total item quantity (flat rate)
To set up shipping calculations:
1.Go to the PayPal website and log in to your account.
2.Click "Profile" at the top of the page.
3.Click the "Shipping Calculations" link in the "Selling Preferences" column.
You can configure domestic or international shipping methods with these options:
•Total order amount (flat rate or percent rate)
•Total order weight (lbs or kg)
•Total item quantity (flat rate)

As BF said customizing programming is needed. But you try this ready made template with your WB
