Recomended Approach for Domestic vs. Internations Shipping

Can you give me a recomneded implementation approach for implementing the following?

We are using the free version of paypal, so should I put a dropdown on the check out page to select whether this is domestic or international?

Do I create two different checkout pages the dropdown would jump to in the event someone does select international?

Here are the rules:

For Domestic: If the purchase is:

$.01 to $40.00 = $3.00 shipping

40.01 - 80.00 = 5.00 shipping

80.01 - and up = 7.00 shipping




Can you set the price for International shipping.

.01 to $40.00 = $12.00

40.01 to 80.00 = $15.00

80.01 to and up = $17.00


Please guide me on the correct way to implement this as Im not quite sure the approach?

Thank you!

I would recommend using PayPal Express Checkout for this and not PayPal Standard.


With express checkout, the user goes to the paypal site to enter the shipping and billing information, and is then returned to your site to confirm the order.


the shipping country will be stored in a session variable named "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_Country"

you can use this session variable value when creating the shipping rules.

You'll need to create 6 shipping rules, 3 for domestic rates and 3 for international rates.

for the domestic rules, the triggers will be:

"Based on session Variable Value":
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_Country" is "=" a value of "US"

then add another trigger for the price breaks:
AND
"Taxable Total For the cart"
if the taxable total price for the cart is ">=" a value of "0.01"

AND
"Taxable Total For the cart"
if the taxable total price for the cart is "<=" a value of "40"



the international shipping rules will be set the same way, except for the session variable triger will be set as:

"Session Variable Exists"
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_Country" exist

AND
"Based on session Variable Value":
if the session variable "eCartCheckoutForm_shipping_Country" is "!=" a value of "US"
