As setup when I buy a quantity greater than one when more than one is available, the item price is multiplied correctly but the shipping price remains unchanged. Is there a way to have it change along with the item price?
Interesting what type of paypal account is this? Reason I ask is we definately are passing the correct shipping amount. Its right in the page source 45 bucks. But your saying paypal says 0 for shipping?
It's a standard business account. It is looking for just a total figure as far as i know. The PayPal account itself is not set up to add on shipping as a separate charge. If you enter a quantity and then click on the Proceed to Payment button you will see exactly what is brought over. You can then cancel out from there.
Okay now if you elect in paypal settings to allow shipping what happens? I am just trying to understand why paypal is not letting you pass shipping
I do not have any of my three PayPal accounts setup to calculate shipping for me because two of the three do not sell anything that requires shipping and the other uses Zen Cart which has it's own setup with both USPS and UPS. This particular ad is linked to the Zen Cart equipped PayPal account. So in all cases, we do not want PayPal to calculate shipping for us.
What is wanted and expected, is that if the advertiser fills in $15.00 in the shipping field, that it will be picked up and calculated into the price passed onto PayPal for straight payment. Quantity x (unit cost + shipping cost) = Price to PayPal. If I have a PayPal account and want it to calculate shipping for me, I would expect that this would be an optional setting in uploadproduct.php or buy.php and that instructions and fields would be modified to handle the difference. I would expect that if I had a site setup with PayPal doing the calculation and adding it in, then I would need to be passing along weights to PayPal and I would not be filling in anything in the shipping amount field.
But I definitely do not feel it is reasonable to expect that all advertisers with a PayPal account will want PayPal to handle their shipping calculations for them.
