Additional charges calculation

from a previous thread, i am trying to add a charge to a cart when a person chooses an item to be monogrammed.
see a page here

Ray showed me how to add the $6 charge by using calculations formula in the ecart object.
Problem when testing using Paypal standard, it does not carry the charge to Checkout.

I would like to add the monogramming charge by using the charges tab in ecart object but i am not sure of the settings.

You probably just have to update your hidden form elements on your checkout page that goes to paypal to refer to "TruePrice" calculation instead of the "Price"

thanks Ray,

i figured out how to use the Charges tab to do what i wanted; mainly because i wanted the Monogramming charge to be added at the bottom, as a separate charge. Since monogramming is the only charge added, i changed the text to 'Monogramming Charges'.

And shipping rules are based on the cart total and since the client did not want monogramming to be counted as part of the total for shipping, i could make the shipping rules be figured on the cart subtotal to exclude monogramming charge.

see the page here

add an item or two to the cart with monogramming info filled out to see charges.

eCart4 is a GREAT PRODUCT!
