Paypal not adding shipping charges


Recommended Posts

When a customer checks out through Paypal the shipping charges aren't being added in the total costs.

Here's my config code.

Can someone help please?


I tried to change:

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'eglobal-mart.com');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'eglobal-mart.com');

and added "www", however when I go back in (after I save the file) the "www" is gone.

I don't understand.




/ Define the webserver and path parameters

// * DIR_FS_* = Filesystem directories (local/physical)

// * DIR_WS_* = Webserver directories (virtual/URL)

define('HTTP_SERVER', 'http://eglobal-mart.com'); // eg, http://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('HTTPS_SERVER', 'https://eglobal-mart.com'); // eg, https://localhost - should not be empty for productive servers

define('ENABLE_SSL', false); // secure webserver for checkout procedure?

define('HTTP_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'eglobal-mart.com');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_DOMAIN', 'eglobal-mart.com');

define('HTTP_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('HTTPS_COOKIE_PATH', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTP_CATALOG', '/');

define('DIR_WS_HTTPS_CATALOG', '/');

define('DIR_WS_IMAGES', 'images/');

define('DIR_WS_ICONS', DIR_WS_IMAGES . 'icons/');

define('DIR_WS_INCLUDES', 'includes/');

define('DIR_WS_BOXES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'boxes/');

define('DIR_WS_FUNCTIONS', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'functions/');

define('DIR_WS_CLASSES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'classes/');

define('DIR_WS_MODULES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'modules/');

define('DIR_WS_LANGUAGES', DIR_WS_INCLUDES . 'languages/');


define('DIR_WS_DOWNLOAD_PUBLIC', 'pub/');

define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/home/richard/public_html/');

define('DIR_FS_DOWNLOAD', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'download/');

First your file needs to be read and wrightable to make changes. ftp to your site and right click on the configure file and make sure you can wright to that file. ftp up a fresh copy with the changes you need and then right click on the file and make it readable only again.


I doubt that having a www or not has anything to do with shipping charges. What shipping module do you have set up in your admin area?

Do you have pay by check or money order enabled?


If not go to includes/languages/your language/modules/payment/moneyorder.php and change the wording (take check part out of line 13) so it reads money order only. Sign in with your test account and go through the order process. If you are or not charged shipping with the money order purchase let us know.

The shipping charges show up fine with a check or money order.

If I do as you say I won't be going through Paypal, which is where the problem is. The shipping charges don't show up after I click "confirm order" and it jumps over to Paypal.


Am I missing something in your recommendation?
