International Shipping with eCart 6 and PayPal Express Checkout

International Shipping with eCart 6 and PayPal Express Checkout

I am trying to set up eCart to handle free shipping in the USA, but $1.00 per item for international orders. When a buyer reaches the checkout page, fills in the shipping address and clicks the 'Continue' button, they are taken directly to PayPal. There is no calculation of shipping done, no confirmation page showing shipping tax, etc. My question is: how does PayPal Express know to calculate shipping for international orders? Shouldn't that be done in eCart before the transaction is handed over to PayPal?

Please help, thank you.

Shipping calculations are done on that page via AJAX before sending it to paypal. You should just have to set up the appropriate shipping rule in your cart object and the shipping will be charged.

I'd just save the shipping country into a session variable on the confirm_cart.php page and then use that to set up a shipping rule in the cart object and that should take care of it.
