    You can easily setup the shipping cost along with the cost of your products using our Paypal or Google Checkout tool

    Here I have prepared a guide using Paypal in order to help you

    1. Select the Paypal form , find it in the Payment tools section,   and then click on the Paypal wizard as shown below

    2. You will see a screen like the one below, then enter your email address registered with Paypal

    3. Choose "users can select multiple products" and click on next at your lower right hand corner


    4. Click on Add new product at the bottom left corner

    5. Add the name of the product and the price (with no symbol), Click on  "Save product" (lower right corner)

    6. Then Add the shipping cost.

    -Click on Save product
    -Click on "Next" and then on "Finish"

    - You can add as many options as you want.

    - Below you see the final result . You can even set the Paypal form as Required, by choosing this option from either the toolbar or the properties button, as shown:


    Hope you find this guide useful

    Hi Jeanette,

    I have a further question. How can I make sure that customer mark the option "shipping cost"?
    In general I could imagine that customer will only mark the product. Another problem you have often when shipping charges change due to shipping in different countries.  How can I make sure this process?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Hello Christian.  The feature that you're looking for is not yet available at the moment.  Although, we already have received numerous requests for from the past, what you can do for now is get the source code of your form which is available when you: Edit your form > Setup & Embed tab > Embed Form > Source, copy and paste the code on your web page and modify it there.

    As soon as we have this feature for variable shipping cost (and taxes), we'll sure to let you know.

    Thanks for your qualified and helpful response.  I have a further question. Is it possible to occupy the shipping cost with a hook?

    Thanks in advance. Christian.
