    Is it possible to automatically determine a shipping charge, for UK only based on a simple formula, say …

    Value of goods up to £50 goods, add £5 delivery

    £50.01 – £100, add £2.50

    over £100, free delivery

  • Hello, please can you try and help me out. I am using the latest version of iWeb and everything about the shopping cart works absolutely fine on my website except for one thing.

    When I go to change the currency from $ to £ it stays in $. I have changed the HTML code in the right place I believe but, it either says that the page doesn’t work when you go to pay via paypal. If the page works then the currency is $.

    Do you know whether there is anything I can do?

  • Hi Ali Baba ! Can you tell me that is the code for a “space” please ? I’m trying to align an image in a certain place but Dreamweaver only lets me to align it to the left,right or center, not anywhere in between. Is adding spaces using codes the only possible way to do this ?

  • Hi, great video! I have two questions :
    Do you know how to remove the googlecheckout from VIEWCART?
    I have multiple items in the same page, and I created different buttons for each, but problem is : if I put them inside the same form box, all buttons put the same item, regarding of being different buttons on the page. OR, like I did, placed each button in a different form, it works correclty, BUT the shipping cost are not combined, means I add item A, and later item B, the shipping is duplicated
