  • Setting up Paypal

    Okies.. I need help again, lol. I'm just starting to set up paypal payments on my site, and have a question that I can't answer myself.

    With postage, is it better to do it separate from the button creation? When you create the add to cart button, you get a chance to add postage there, or should I wait and do it later? I've only done a couple of items, so it's no biggie to change it.

    Another reason is because of international postage... it will, obviously, be more expensive.

    I set up a different paypal account for this (business), and am integrating the buttons into the html with the code that's created. So far so good, but I won't go any further until I get a little feedback if that's okay with you all. The only bummer about this new account is that I need to move my bank details from my personal one *sigh*, and it won't let me use the same credit card, but that's okay. I just really want it for payments.

    Oh the complexities of it all, lol!

    Payments

    Hello,

    I've always found it more useful to have the payment for the item and payment for postage as separate things.

    For example; you add the item to the cart and possibly another then there a button which lets you see how much the postage would be. (you would have had to have previously entered which country you were from).

    This way you can cater for all the different pricings relevant to UK, European and International postage costs.

      I've not gone back to look yet, but I'm presuming paypal has a section where you can calculate postage rates etc..? Or am I just praying for a quick and easy way? lol.

      Thanks for that.

      Out of curiosity, I see you use protx payments too... how do you find them? Easy to integrate with your site and paypal too?

        Hi Rachel

        When I set up paypal I used the

        "use setting saved in your paypal profile" button for postage

        and the only set up the postage once. I did go the simple option of a flat rate of postage (£2) on orders under £15, free postage above £15 and didn't offer any overseas postage.

        Probably not much help, can't remember exactly what I did as it was way back in October, do know, tho', that I have just added an extra 50 items to the shop and didn't have to worry about postage as it defaulted to my original settings.

          Okay, in the process of doing paypal again, and boy do I need a break, lmao.

          Anyway, I'm getting things sorted for this country, no bother... but I do need to consider things being sent abroad. I don't know if I should add this as a separate purchase? I can't seem to figure things out in paypal with regards to adding international postage at all.

          *sigh*

          I need to go hide somewhere.



          Maybe I should ask them to add something (separate purchase) if they want insured postage for international sales? Or to email me for other options?

          *runs screaming into the distance*
