adding shipping to store using pay pal

  1. I need to use pay pal with my store and cannot figure out how to charge shipping. Is there anyone I can talk with about this problem. I hired someone to do my web site and they are not familiar with process either.

    The blog I need help with is storyplay.wordpress.com.

  2. Are you referring to this free hosted WordPress.com blog?
    http://storyplay.wordpress.com/

    Our free hosted WordPress.com blogs cannot be equipped for eCommerce transactions.

    There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins.

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/

    There is no upgrade you can purchase that changes anything at all stated here http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    FTP access, plugins and third party themes are available only for VIP bloggers http://vip.wordpress.com/our-services/ or for those with WordPress.ORG installs.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org are completely separate. if you require plugins, a shopping cart, etc. then you must hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting/ and set up your own WordPress.org install. http://wordpress.org/ Then you can move your content from the free hosted WordPress.com blog into the WordPress.org install. http://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-blog/

  3. Just pick a number for shipping and display it alongside the price, eg "add $5 for shipping in the continental USA, $15 for shipping elsewhere" and include that in the price on the Buy It Now button.

    That's assuming you're talking about the empty blog http://storyplay.wordpress.com/. Otherwise, Paypal has built in solutions for ecommerce sites.
