    How can I set it up so the shipping for the first item as a flat rate and then each additional items (regardless of the item type) is $1 more?

    Asked by bkbtv on February 29, 2016 at 03:53 AM

    I have another question...
    I have multiple items for sale. How can I set it up so the shipping for the first item is a flat rate (ie $7) and then each additional items (regardless of the item type) is $1 more?
    Thanks again,
    Barr

    Hello,

    You can do it through PayPal wizard, when you add your items and on the Shipment page you can set up how the shipping will be charged:

    So you can set up the price for the first item and select the price that will be for each additional.

    Please let me know if this can work for your set up.

    Best regards.

    Thanks for your reply.
    Unfortunately, that method did not work for me. For each "first" item it charged the full amount.
    For instance...If the first item amount is $10 and the additional items are $1, and I ordered one test1, test2, test3, and test4, I would get charged the full amount for each ($40) instead of $13.
    Thanks for any assistance.
    Barr

    Hello,

    I hear you, that's because you need different types of products. That will work for one only, you order one: 7$ and any additional, of the same type, is 1$ each.

    The set up that you need is somebody orders any four items, and it calculates 7$ + 1$ + 1$ + 1$.

    I'm not sure it is doable in that way, since PayPal is integration, so you can not change a lot there.

    Maybe we could create some multiple conditions and use them to populate shipping field that we can add later to total field and send to PayPal, I'm thinking in that way.

    How many items would you have, approximately?

    Best regards.

    Hi, 

    Unfortunately, Paypal integration in form does not support this kind of logic, you can only use settings provided in the Paypal integration wizard. 

    Please let me know if i can be of more assistance to you.

    Best regards.
