    Hi. I have a form that I have a PayPal widget in. I need the widget to calculate shipping but I need to have it set to do special shipping rates for USA, Canada, Mexico, and International. Also, I need it to prorate based on the items total. 

    This is what I want to charge for shipping:

    United States
    $3 for 1-2 CDs. 
    $5 for 3 or more.
     
    Canada
    $5 for 1-2 CDs. 
    $10 for 3 or more.
     
    Mexico 
    $7 for 1-2 CDs
    $12 for 3 or more.
     
    Anywhere else
    $9 For 1-2 CDs. 
    $15 for 3 or more.

    Hi @wyattdesigns!

    Unfortunately it is not possible to add shipping options for various regions in PayPal Integration. A workaround would be to create shipping as a New Product item and add options in the Product Settings. Please clone the following form to see if this suggestion works for you: https://form.jotform.com/90996589225980

    Please let me know if you have any other questions. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    Okay. Is there a way to make it to where shipping is not calculated in the widget but let PayPal’s shipping options overtake it? We thought we had it set up like that but when we go to PayPal, it still doesn’t add shipping.

    Yes. If you have the shipping method configured in your PayPal account, you may enable the option 'Use the shipping fee in the transaction instead of my calculator's settings:' in the Shipping configuration of PayPal.

    The shipping cost shall be automatically applied to total cost once the form is redirected to the PayPal page.

    Hope this information helps!

    This is on the PayPal side…not JotForm?
