Customization single price option

Customization single price option

Can someone tell me if it's possible to add a single fee for customization to an item. Example: I am selling tote bags for $8 each, but I want the customer to be able to add their name for a single extra fee of $10. So if they order one bag it's $8+$10 for customization, if they order 5 bags it's $40+$10 for customization. The customization I've seen so far wants to add the extra fee to each but I really don't want to do that. If it's possible, how??

You could just have the customization be an additional item, this way it would retain the same price for the customization regardless of how many the user wants to buy. If you would like to have it like this then you would need to define how you would like your user to choose this customization option. Probably one of the easiest ways would be to have a checkbox and use that as a trigger for a second add to cart server behavior. So if the user checks the box then you have an add to cart server behavior that will occur and set the price in the cart as well as any other aspects of the customization you would like to include.

Please post back with any questions that you have about any part of this and we will be glad to help get you going.

Eric,
Any and all help is appreciated. I definitely want the easiest solution and your idea sounds like exactly what I want. I'm reading as many tutorials and the "recipes" that go with this to try to figure it all out, but as a novice some of it is greek. Basically I will have 6 Items available for starters, each item has 5 color choices and the option of adding a personalized name. If you could help me out in how to make this work properly that would be AWESOME!

With the eCommerce Toolkit I think you will need to create a new add to cart or buy now button for this. Then you just need to have the option for the name or whatever the customization is. When you are setting up the item you can set a sample value for the option name and value. When you create the button and the form you can update it by changing the option value element to be a text field for the user to enter their name. Then when the user adds this item to the Paypal cart they will have the charge of the option and its value, the name entered into the text field.

If you get the extra option item setup like this and have any troubles with it please post back with a link so we can have a reference for the current configuration of it.

It looks like the action for your forms on this page are not going to PayPal. You will need to ensure that the forms are posting to the correct location. The action should be a PayPal page, the default buttons that are created should have the proper action specified in the form.

Thanks, back to the drawing board! I'll post an update once I get it done.

I think the action of these forms should be like this:

action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr"
