I am currently working on my website that sells images on canvas and I am using PayPal through Yola as my check out facility.

I have managed to put a £9.95 postage tarrif on all orders however I would like to vary this cost depending on where the order is to be shipped. The beauty of being able to sell online is so that I can reach a global market however I need to suitably charge so I am not out of pocket.

Does anybody know how I can set this up through Paypal
(I know this is a PayPal issue and I have tried getting the answer from but they never understood what I meant even though its quite simple)

Thank you in advance

Hi Stewart,

I've managed to find a detailed guide on using PayPal (it's a downloadable PDF) and it has a lot of information on how to setup your shipping. If you go to https://www.paypal.com/us/standard and click on "Website Payments Standard Integration Guide (PDF)" in the bottom left (this is the link to the actual PDF: https://cms.paypal.com/cms_content/US....

I hope that helps!

Hi
Thank you for these Marije but unfortunately the PDF Document has only tutorials for the US merchant and not a UK merchant - it seems such a simple thing to do but PayPal will not allow me to set up international shipping rates..

Can anybody help?

Hi Steward,

I found the UK equivalent on this link: https://cms.paypal.com/cms_content/US... (which is on this page: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cm....

I did download it and there doesn't seem to be much info on shipping. Perhaps you will find it interesting though.

If PayPal isn't living up to your expectations, you can try other services like Google Checkout and Alertpay. I'm not sure on their shipping details but they are an option.

Thanks for your help on this - its seems such trivial thing international shipping it should be their forte I can’t understand why its so difficult to setup.

Is it possible to change check out facilities through Yola as it seems to be setup with PayPal by default.

Thanks

I agree - it does seem like something that should be setup on their side!

I can recall another UK person using Mal's: http://www.mals-e.com/ - perhaps you would like to check them out. Here's a link to Alertpay too: http://www.alertpay.com/

Unfortunately we don't have a payment system in place on Yola.
