I use the standard Paypal cart on my site, and
love the service provided. I sell comic books.
My only complaint concerns the shipping calculations
section on my user preferences area. I am currently
using the flat rate method of shipping fee calculation,
but the available selections for pricing variance does
not have a wide enough field.
IE: $0.00- $10.00
$10.00-$49.99
etc
etc.
I ship items free over $50 purchase price, use media
mail rates to hold down shipping costs and would like
some education on breaking the shipping fee that is
calculated into small increments. Something along the
lines of : $0.00 - $9.99 = $xxxshipping fee
$10.00-$19.99 = $yyyshipping fee
$20.00-$29.99 = $zzzshipping fee
etc
etc
I confess to only knowing basic html, I wrote my own
site, actually had fun learning something new, but
am now an employed 'blue hair' without the time to
devote to learning java, perl, etc, etc.
I need reccomendations on a cut and paste that could
be included into my shopping cart. ?????
Feel free to peruse my site and email me ideas or
post them here. If nothing else, perhaps I've provided
you with some entertainment.

Best,
Phil

This would be difficult without using a third party cart.

Hey, You may want to use Javascript. It is free everywhere and can do what you want. You can go to my site and see some shopping cart javascript code that is free and can do what you are asking.

I have certainly noticed the dificulty.
Sorry guys and gals, I've shied away from
javascript simply because I do not know what I
am doing. When time permits, I cut and paste, but
things never seem to work out. HTML is easy XML
difficult for me.
My end result would be::
Sell item A for $ 1.00 add $ 3.00 for shipping.
Sell item B for $ 1.00 add $ 0.15 for shipping.
Sell item C for $ 1.00 add $ 0.15 for shipping.
Sell item D for $ 1.00 add $ 0.15 for shipping.
End result 4 items sold for $ 4.00 and $ 3.45 for shipping.
Sorry AM, but you page is still un-decipherable to
this old blue hair. BUT, it has given me a place
to start.
Kudos,
Phil

when all else fails,
read the instructions...

We introduced a new variable cart_handling which applies one amount to the whole cart no matter how many different products are added.
