Buyers enter their shipping address during checkout and that's when PayPal calculates shipping and taxes.
You therefore define your shipping profile at PayPal
not at Zhibit.org.
PayPal's wizard that will guide you through the process of defining your shipping policy.
Start by pressing the Start
button in the Domestic Shipping
As an example, press Add >>
to include All states and territories
to your shipping calculator.
If you'd like to differentiate between states (for example, charge extra to ship to Alaska and Hawaii),
you'd have to choose state by state those states you wish to create the rule for,
and create separate rules for each group of states.
. You'll end up on this screen which is the main screen for defining the shipping rule:
Select a name from the top drop down (for example, choose Economy
Select the delivery time from the bottom drop down (for example, 2-7 business days
Make sure you select either the Total order amount
or the Total item quantity
checkboxes as the basis for calculations
because Zhibit.org does not support weight-based calculations at this time.
Next, click on either Fixed Amounts
to specify if shipping fees are a fixed dollar amount
or a percentage of the total order amount.
The next section is somewhat confusing. There are 5 rows that allow you to specify ranges (price or quantity, based on your basis of calculations)
and the cost associated with that range. So for example, you can define a fixed amount rule such as this:
The amount in the rightmost column will be added to the order based on its total amount.
So for example, the shipping rate for an order in the amount of $80 will be $10.
You can also define a percentage rule like this:
In this case a percentage of the total order amount will be added as shipping cost.
So for example, the shipping rate for an order in the amount of $80 will be 10% of $80, or $8.
Press the Create Another
button when you're finished defining the rule.
Then, repeat the process for other shipping options. For example, you can define Express Domestic
with 1-2 business days
when you're done, review the rules, then Save
When buyers add an item to your cart on Zhibit.org, and proceed to checkout at PayPal
they are prompted for their shipping address and their preferred shipping method (e.g. Economy
or Express Domestic
Shipping rates are then added to the transaction accordingly.
