Allowing PayPal to Calculate Shipping


Although we do not recommend it, and offer no support for this, since we do not have access to your PayPal account and cannot rely on third party services to always perform well, you can allow PayPal calculate shipping instead of Wazala.

Please note this is not for the first timers, and you're only advised to do this unless you know what you are doing. Wazala does not offer support for these issues, and we strongly suggest using Wazala to calculate your shipping.

Want to know more? Here are the details.

Only PayPal Standard can calculate your shipping for you. You can choose to use PayPal Standard if you wish to allow for PayPal to calculate your shipping.

None of the other payment methods apart from PayPal Standard allow for this! So you cannot use Stripe, PayMill, Authorize or any other PayPal methods like, PayPal Pro, PayPal Express or PayPal Advanced.

To allow your payment gateway to calculate shipping and override shipping calculations in Wazala make sure you follow these steps:

  1. Set up your products within Wazala and state whether they are shippable or not
  2. Set up your shipping regions within Wazala and set up complete shipping rates for all your regions and products. You can estimate as much as you can.
  3. Go to Manager > Payment tab and click on PayPal Standard. You will see and advanced options link. Once clicked you have the option to allow your payment gateway to override Wazala's shipping calculations. Select that and save
  4. Set up your shipping calculations in your PayPal account.

We recommend you test your cart before going live to make sure all calculations are correct.
