    I want to sell DVDs on my site and want to create a form that will take orders. I see the gateway to PayPal and have used that feature before on a previous porject. I can't see how to add shipping and handling to the price of an order before it gets passed to PayPal. Is there something I am missing?

    Hi David,

    Unfortunately as of this moment there is no option to add shipping and handling
    to the items for sale. However as a workaround what you can do is to include
    shipping and handling cost within the price of the items for sale.

    For example, if an item costs $50 and shipping is $10, the total item price
    in your form will become $60. Just indicate in the product notes that the price
    indicated already includes shipping.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    We hope you find this information useful.

    Thank you for using JotForm.

    We have just released the shipping option for Paypal integrated forms.

    You may now specify a cost for shipping each item, or set a weight value for each item to have the shipping cost calculated using the profile-based method you have set up under your Paypal account.
