How to Add Shipping Cost to Payment Forms?

Last Update: March 25, 2016

With our shipping feature, you may now specify a cost for shipping each item or set a weight value for each item. Assuming that you have already added the product items to your form, clicking next will take you to the "Other Options" in Payment wizard.

a. Simply click "Shipping" button



b. Another popup window will appear to choose a Shipping Option:


Note that Weigh Value is only available for Paypal based payment forms. Shipping Cost will be automatically loaded for the other payment integration such as Stripe and Authorize.net. 


c. Clicking "Shipping Cost" will bring you another window. Charge bases are "Per Product Item" and "Per Transaction or Flat Rate".

For Per Product Item, you have to specify the cost of shipping each item. Do note that if "Additional Item" is left empty, buyers will be charged a flat rate based on the "First Item" cost.



For Per Transaction (Flat Rate), your buyers will be charged for the shipping cost you specify regardless of what item they choose from your payment field.



d. For Paypal based forms, you can specify a weight value for each product. These values will be used if you have a weight-based shipping method configured under your Paypal account.


You can also specify the "Weight Unit", either "pounds" or "kilograms".


That's it for adding shipping rates to your payment form. If you have any questions, feel free to add it as a comment below or head on to our support forum.

I have weight based shipping configured under my Paypal account and have done everything in your instructions but shipping fees are still not showing up when an order is placed. The issue is not from Paypal because my other Paypal orders are showing shipping fees. Please help. Thanks

Hi, is there a way to change the 'shipping' text to something else such as 'service fee' if we're using that module for something different? It seems that even if we change the text it is showing up as shipping on the Paypal receipt. Thank you
