Webassist & ecart

I have both Webassist & ecart for the current project that i am working on, i want to upload a file with some orders. I have inserted the button & programmed it in webassist File Manipulation & it does select the file but when i add the product to the cart the file disappears can you explain the best way to do this?

I also want to have a button that when it is selected it will add in a value eg:€90 to the final cost of the purchase can you explain the best way to do this?

Finally i will have different charges depending on the product selected can you explain how i link a product to a specific delivery charge? I am a complete novice & only purchased the software a week ago so im pretty raw so please be nice & in depth where possible. You can find a sample of the cart at:

The file upload behavior will create a server file name variable that contains the name of the uploaded file.

in the add to cart button, select the column to save the file name, click the lightning bolt next to value, and expand the WA Uploaded Files (File Field Name) binding group and select the server file name binding.

The button to add the delivery charge you would probably add to the checkout page. that will post to the confirm page. on the confirm page, add a set session value behavior to save the selection in a session variable, then create a change in the eCart object that uses the session variable trigger to charge a flat rate of 90.

for the per item charges, there are a couple of different ways to go about this, probably the best way is tyo add a column to the cart for shippingCharge.

in the add to cart button behavior, set the shippingCharge column to the charge for that item.

on the calcualtions tab, add a new calculation set the name to totalShipping. and set the calculation to:

[shippingCharge] * [Quantity]

on the shipping tab, ,create a shipping rule using the trigger number of items in cart is grater than 0

for the calculation, use Subtotal for column shippingCharge.
