Hi Michael,

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.

Hi njoynlife - does this work with the widgets on Yola? If it does, would you mind giving us some more info? That would be great!

Hi Marije, No it will not work with the widgets on Yola as of yet but I know they are working to make paypal more compatible with websites everyday. I watch their program grow all the time. Just a month or two ago they didnt have a handle on the inventory through links created on the paypal website. Now they have this set so that it works perfectly. I am watching as the shipping is being put into play, it still has quite a bit of problems with it so I just check it each day and watch it kind of grow.
A few phone calls back, I asked them if there was a way to create a complete shopping cart with inventory control and shipping calculations through html only. They told me that this was not something they had put together yet and wouldnt for a while but that it was possible and to contact the creator of my website. I laughed and said I was the one creating it. So, while I dont know how it is done, I am told it can be done.
One of the newest intros is shown here:
It is evidence that paypal acknowledges the change of online merchandising outside of ebay. Not all customers want to set up a paypal account, they just want to pay from their blackberry and move onto the next thing. All really exciting news, kind of frightening at the same time.
Setting up the shipping and inventory inside of paypal is not really hard but it does take some studying. Right now they have shipping set up three different ways adn the final option has glitches which will confuse a new user.
