Hi zoegell,

Just a quick add on the really great advice that Ed has already shared with you-

You would need to add the cost of shipping to the price in the description field or include it in the total cost of your product. We are hoping to add more functionality (like this one) to the PayPal widgets in the near future.

We have a tutorial that explains how to create an online store: Creating An Online Store, that you can look at for more information.

An alternative is to create your buttons and customize the shipping rates on For information on how to add shipping to your products, please view PayPal's Website Payments Standard Integration Guide PDF (5.8mb PDF). Once you've customized your settings on PayPal, you can copy the HTML embed code provided and add it to your site using the HTML widget.

Hope this helps!
