    For shipping I am wanting to use the USPS "flat rate" service. The items being shipped are videos tapes, which means different sizes. Here is my reality:

    1 VHS = 3 VHS-C

    1 VHS = 6 Mini DV

    So there are basically three different sizes of tapes.

    There are 4 different flat rate boxes.

    Box A can hold 1 VHS

    Box B can hold 6 VHS

    Box C can hold 10 VHS

    Box D can hold 15 VHS

    If a person has a mixture of tape formats, I am wanting the form to be able to calculate which Biox is best for their shipping needs.

    Any way to do this.?

    Thanks in advance.

    Can you please share to us the URL link of your form so we can properly identify a resolution needed for the actual form.

    We need to check the current form to formulate a suggestion / workaround.

    Thank you for updating us and providing us with the requested details.

    From what I see, you will have to use custom payment configuration instead. You will need to use the basic fields and not the payment field for the calculations on the items/products.

    The flat rate Shipping Cost is just not possible to formulate in your current items/products configurations.

    Allow me some more time to create a demo form with the idea of the custom calculation payment form base on your form.

    I will update you here as soon as available.
