Hi Zoegell

Unfortunately the Yola Online Paypal widget doesn't yet offer this feature. However, you can add it to your site by visiting a thread I started here...

Shipping and postage are the same thing to Paypal... ;)

As to the product size part of your question the Yola Online Store widgets don't yet offer this feature. However, you can add to your site by visiting PayPal and customizing the code so that you can have a size selection (or other) on your site. Here's how:

1. Sign into your PayPal account.
2. Click the "Merchant services" tab in the horizontal menu.
3. Click the "Buy Now Button" or the "Add to Cart Button".
4. Choose button type and enter name and payment details.
5. Check the "Add drop-down menu with price/option" box half-way down the page.
6. Add the details of your selection.
7. Click "Done".
8. When done editing click "Create Button".
9. In the next window and in the (Website) code box click the "Select Code".
10. Right click on the highlighted text and click "Copy".
11. Open your site editor and drag an HTML widget where you need it.
12. In the HTML widget paste the code.
13. Then Update your site.

Happy site building

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!
