I’ve entered a basic shipping fee, it shows up in the shopping cart but when I checkout it’s not transferred to the Paypal screen.
Can you please help?

Are you using PayPal profile based shipping? Are you using the latest version of the Simple shopping cart (v2.6)?
Can you please post a link to the page where you have the “Add to Cart” buttons so I can check it out?February 4, 2010 at 10:02 pm #17725
here is the link [www.theweddingstationerystore.co.uk/store] – i am using v2.6.

Sorry to be a pain, but i’m quite eager to get this sorted to get my site live – i’ve redesigned my site and really need to get this sorted.
Could you please let me know asap what the problem is

You can specify shipping options in your PayPal profile (known as PayPal profile based shipping).
I had a look at your site and the shopping cart is sending the shipping value to PayPal but for some reason PayPal is ignoring it (it kind of indicates that you have some setup in your profile thats doing it)February 6, 2010 at 11:18 am #17728
Do you know what sort of settings that need changing, i’ve tried it with another paypal account and it works perfectly.
I checked the postage settings and they are all on default.
I don’t really know where to go from here – is there anything you can suggest?

As you mentioned that it works with another PayPal account so it isolates the problem being in your PayPal profile. I would recommend contacting PayPal and asking them something like the following:
“I am using a simple shopping cart software. When customers check out, PayPal seems to be overriding the shipping value. What profile settings should I change so the shipping value do not get overridden?”February 7, 2010 at 11:42 am #17730
I want to say thanks for all the help you’ve given me.
I’ve been in touch with paypal and this is what the replied with –
“If you are passing shipping from the shopping cart through the code of the website you will need to enable the shipping override within your PayPal account Profile. To do this:
Log into your PayPal account receiving the payments
Select the Profile
Select the Postage Calculations
Check the box to ‘allow transaction-based shipping values to override the profile shipping settings’ for your override to work.
This will allow your cart shipping settings to override anything set in the profile for shipping.”
I hope this may help any others that have the same problem.
Thanks again and keep up the good work.
