is there a way that i can set a percentage rate for shipping costs, for example, say someone purchases 150.00 worth of merchandise and i want to add 10% shipping cost to the complete order instead of a set shipping price per item the customer purchases. Or say if the customer purchases 100.00 worth of merchandise or less set a shipping cost of 10.00 to the whole order?

If you are using the online store widget you would have to come up with a flat rate for each item and have it as part of your cost....If you go to your account on the PayPal site and use their Add to Cart Buttons you create you can come up with shipping options there.

I was kinda hoping there was an easier way. my site will have thousands of products on it when i am finished with it. Using paypal i havent found a way to do percentages of the Total purchase cost. Is there another shopping cart that might have it? and if paypal does can someone tell me how to get to it to set it up?

Hello Savannah,

Another thing you can try is Google Checkout. This will allow you to set shipping charges.

Here is a link to our Knowledge Book: Adding Google Checkout and here is a link to the Google Checkout help page where they discuss setting up shipping: Setting up Shipping.

Possibly this will be a better solution for you.
