I recently bought the WP Photo Seller plug-in and it seems to cover all the functionality I need. However, the shipping rate is so basic it cannot cover what I need. For selling prints of my pictures, I use different photo labs in different countries (basically: US, France, Switzerland) depending on where the customer is from. Therefore, I would like to customize the shipping rate for each country individually and not just “local” vs “international”. Is that possible or will it be possible in the future?
Same issue with the currencies. Can I use a different currency depending on where the customer is from?
Thanks for your help!

We are rapidly improving and adding features to this plugin and the shipping functionality is one of the components we will be adding more flexibility to in upcoming releases.
In the meantime, you can use paypal profile based shipping to achieve what you are after.
See this video for setting up PayPal profile based shipping:

At the moment no but thanks for the suggestion and we will seriously consider implementing something for this in a future update.October 2, 2013 at 1:42 am #58054BeuchatPhotographyMember
Thanks Peter for the prompt reply! I will look into the PayPal profile based shipping in the meantime

I, too,am looking for a more customized way to charge shipping for prints. The PayPal options (weight, amount, number) are not really applicable to various size, mounted vs unmounted or metal photographic prints. I noticed that this post was listed a year ago. Is there anything new? ThanksNovember 24, 2014 at 12:24 am #58056
Just a follow-up to my question – is there a way to use the WP eStore shipping app with Photo Seller?November 24, 2014 at 11:40 pm #58057
We haven’t yet had a chance to tackle this feature. It is still on our radar but we have other higher priority features we are currently working on for the photo seller.

No because the plugins operate in totally different ways and they are not in any way related or connected.November 25, 2014 at 2:04 am #58058
Looking forward to it.June 17, 2015 at 5:18 pm #58059seantech1Member
How can you sell a shopping cart with just one shipping and tax rate and no option to create others? Most people selling products and especially photos have different needs when it comes to weight and cost of shipping. This is very inconvenient,there has to be an option within a shopping cart to create different shipping rates to accommodate all products or you cannot call it a proper shopping cart. There should be no need to go into PayPal as some people don’t even have a PayPal account. When is this feature going to be sorted?
I may have posted this in the wrong place so I am posting it here now as well it is definitely appropriate here. This seems to be an issue for a long time now and has not been addressed.

Implementing shipping functionality can get quite complex.
It might be best if we do it in small increments.
Can you please give me a description of a shipping scenario which will at least cover most/some of your needs? (This will help us get a clearer picture of what what customers actually want)
