    How to add a paypal handling and shipping fee

    Asked by inspirable on May 07, 2014 at 03:16 PM

    Hi I was wondering if we could create a section on the form where a user could input the amount they wish to pay. And then the form would also charge a $4 dollar handling and shipping fee.


    I see where we can make a donations (type your own amount in) style paypal form but cant find the handing / shipping fee part.


    Again, the client needs to be able to type a custom payment amount in then the shipping/handling fee gets added.

    - Add a standard product.

    - Set the product price to 1 USD and add a custom quantity.

    Then, configure the shipping and handling part.
