I am sharing a PayPal account with a business that requires a $10.00 shipping fee for all items purchased, but I don’t want any shipping added to any of my purchases. Is there any way I can override that PayPal setting from within the plugin? I know the easy answer is to get my own PayPal account, but that’s not possible. Help? I love this plugin, but won’t be able to use it if it can’t override PayPal settings. Thank you!February 27, 2014 at 6:48 am #61158mbrsolutionSpectator
Hi Bdesign, make sure that in the plugin you don’t enable the following settings.
WP eStore >> Settings >> Payment Gateway Settings >> PayPal Settings
Use PayPal Profile Based Shipping <====Don’t enable this.
Check this if you want to use PayPal profile based shipping that you have configured in your PayPal account. Using this will ignore any other shipping options that you have specified in this plugin.
Let us know if that helps you.

I’m having the problem, even with this setting disabledFebruary 27, 2014 at 11:35 am #61160mbrsolutionSpectator
Hi bdesign, have you added any shipping charge any where else in the plugin i.e under
WP eStore >> Settings >> General Settings >> Shipping & Tax Related Settings?February 27, 2014 at 7:33 pm #61161
WP eStore >> Settings >> General Settings >> Shipping & Tax Related Settings
Base Shipping Cost: 0.00
Enables Tax Calculation: checked
Tax Rate: 0%
When that didn’t work, I also added these settings:
WP eStore >> Coupons/Discounts >> Manage Coupons/Discounts >> Automatic Discount Settings
Use Automatic Discount Feature: checked
Free Shipping for Sub-total Over: $1.00
And I also later added:
WP eStore >> Manage Products >> Product ID 1 >> Shipping & Tax
Item Shipping Cost: $0.00
Item Weight: 0
Item Specific Tax: 0%February 27, 2014 at 11:55 pm #61162adminKeymaster
Tell your partner (who own the account) to enable shipping override in the paypal account. If shipping override option is not enabled in the paypal account then the plugin won’t be able to do it.
Read the following post that will tell you where in the PayPal account to look for this shipping override settings:

They sent me a screencap of the shipping settings. “Use the shipping fee in the transaction instead of my calculator’s settings” is already set to yes. Their shipping calculator charges by quantity, if that helps any.March 3, 2014 at 11:36 pm #61164adminKeymaster
Okay please share the URL of a page where I can go and add an item to the cart then do a checkout. I will be able to see if the cart is submitting shipping data correctly to PayPal or not.
What version of eStore are you using?March 13, 2014 at 12:05 am #61165
All fixed! We got them to remove the shipping settings, and the plugin works great. Thanks for your help.
