What I am doing is selling hard cover books, sunglasses and related aviation products. I have looked at my PayPal account and the shipping preferences for both domestic and international shipping via USPS will be just fine.
However, what I need to do is be able to put in a value for the weight of a book in order for PayPal to calculate the correct USPS shipping cost.
As an example, one of the books I sell weighs 5 pounds when packed. Under Profile > Shipping Calculations I have selected Priority Mail for All States and Territories and the Basis is weight.
So, a 5 pound book being shipped via USPS Priority Mail would cost $ 16.05.
Of course, I can actually create my own schedule of shipping charges within the profile.
I hope this is clearer. I assume all that needs to happen is for there to be a field for each product where you place the weight which then is carried over to PayPal for calculating shipping.
Thank you so much.
I am not using the simple shopping cart, I am using the WP eStore plugin with its shopping cart.
In the documentation it shows that the shopping cart will integrate with PayPals profile based shipping, but – again – where does it pass the weight to PayPal in order for PayPal to calculate shipping?
I will give this a try; however, how/where do you place the weight of the product so that value can be passed on to PayPal to calculate the correct shipping?
It seems to me that an additional field to place the weight of the product in and then pass it to PayPal would be a fairly easy solution.
