Hello again wonderful authors of this plugin!
I have a major problem with this whole shipping business because my client is on an Australian paypal account, and that doesn’t allow us to use the International Shipping option.
Is it possible for me to hardcode a dropdown of maybe 5 countries and price at the cart, make send that amount to Paypal?
If yes, how do I go about doing it (or could you give me quick pointers?)?
Thanks in advance!August 21, 2010 at 2:01 am #23522IvyMember
Hi, Why not use the variation option in eStore and put your shipping variations in there.
Variation 1: Shipping
Country A $10.00
Country B $15.00
Country C $20.00
Or just have a flat rate International shipping rate for all countries.
Variation 1: Shipping
International Shipping Rate $18.00

Hey Ivy – If I’m not mistaken the variation option is available per item in the products right? I actually need this to be at the cart itself.
If I were to implement the shipping in the product, wouldn’t it charge $10.00 extra per product?
Correct me if I’m wrong about this.August 22, 2010 at 1:17 am #23524wpCommerceModerator
I think you might want to use the base shipping with the shipping cost to avoid charging extra per product.
Say, You have a physical product of $10.00 and you are using a base shipping cost of $10.00 for this product. As you are using a base shipping cost, you don’t need to specify the full shipping cost for country A, Country B, Country C, Country D and Country E in the variation. In the variation You will specify the extra costs (which together with the base shipping will make the full cost) that you need to charge for different countries. Have a look at the following variation example –
Variation 1: Shipping
Country A $2.00
Country B $5.00
Country C $7.00
country D $9.00
country E $11.oo
In the above variation, if your customer choose country A it will charge extra $2.00 per product for shipping cost with a base shipping of $10.00 ( base shipping $10.00+ $2.00 = total $12.00 shippping cost for country A). Now if that customer add 2 products to the cart , the total shipping cost will be $14.00 ( base shipping 10.00+2*2 = $14.00). If you’ve used a flat $12,00 shipping cost in the variation it’d add $12.00 everytime you add the product in the cart. Hope this makes sense.
You can also have a look on the following post to clarify this –

Oh no, that’s totally not what I’m looking for.
I’m actually looking for this –
All my products, no matter how many you add on into the cart, will be charged a flat rate based on the country, regardless of the total quantity.
So let’s just say I have 2 products in the cart
Product A $10.00
Product B $5.00
Ship to <select>
<option value=”$12.00″>Australia ($12.00)</option>
<option value=”$15.00″>New Zealand ($15.00)</option>
Final Total $xx.00
I want to be able to select which country I’m shipping to from the checkout itself.. is there anyway to manipulate the variations to work this way?
Thanks for the feedback so far!August 24, 2010 at 1:07 am #23526IvyMember
The eStore only has simple shipping options as it was designed mainly for digital products. You can use the basic shipping option that the eStore has or PayPal Profile Shipping. These are the only 2 options for shipping.

Yeap, am totally aware of that, that’s why in the first post I was asking if there was a quick and dirty solution to hardcode it and make sure the shipping values get posted to Paypal as well.September 27, 2010 at 6:59 am #23528surfingartMember
I also require a basic option like this as I am in Australia and don’t have the paypal profile shipping option.
Were you able to tweek the code to do this? Just 3 options would be a good start.
thanks for a great plugin.
