    How can I add specific shipping cost?

    Asked by artsustudios on July 25, 2014 at 05:16 AM

    Hi. I do printing business. I do not ship to any other states, even no other countries because I'm a just retailer, and local customers only. Also all prints are so heavy. No one wants to pay for regular shipping fee such as USPS, UPS because they also charges by weight. Basically I tell customers to pick up only, but I do free deliver by myself for good customers or local area if they can wait. I don't mind to go little bit far away, then I'll have to charge some kind of delivery fee for the gas. The new shipping option has only 2 options, even paypal does same..... I could add as "shipping fee" on the top widget but it'll be added by sale tax calculation. Shipping fee shouldn't be calculated the tax....

    I just need to more control shipping option, include free section. Example: Local(within 19 miles)-FREE, within 20 miles-$10, within 40 miles-$20 

    Does anyone have any idea to fix my issue?

    Adding shipping to your Paypal Account should do that, I think. Please follow this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/188-How-to-add-Shipping-to-your-Paypal-standard-account. Otherwise, using our calculation is a good workaround. Check Paypal and let us know if that won't work for you.

    Thank you, but it's all about total amount or percentage, but I'd like to add by area....
