How to add State Sales Tax

There are 4 ways you can add shipping charges.


Add a Set Percentage

This is accomplished by editing your Paypal Settings in your FASO Control Panel as follows:

  • login to your FASO account Control Panel
  • click Commerce icon (upper right, shopping cart icon)

  • for Standard Shipping Percent, click the down arrow
  • select one of the preset options
  • IMPORTANT: Select No for Use Paypal Shipping (Disables all FASO Shipping Amounts) otherwise your shipping percentage will NOT be added
  • click Save Changes

Add Shipping Charges in PayPal Based on the Buyer's Location

This procedure will dynamically calculate shipping costs AFTER the Buy Now button has been engaged and the buyer is in PayPal completing the transaction.

To set up this option, edit settings in your Paypal account as follows:

  • login to your Paypal account
  • click Tools/All Tools (upper row)
  • click on Run your business (left menu)
  • for Shipping calculator, click Open

  • click on Start below
    Set Up Domestic Shipping Methods
    or below
    Set Up International Shipping Methods
  • follow the PayPal prompts

Info from Paypal's FAQ: How do I calculate shipping costs on my site?

Notes on International Shipping

Domestic and International are 2 separate options in PayPal.

If you want to offer free shipping in the USA and only charge for International shipping, you would choose Set Up International Shipping Methods.

Paypal will know the difference between a Dometic order and an International order when the order is processed.

For additional questions please contact PayPal support. They know more about their system than we do.

Also keep in mind that international shipping can be complicated and expensive. Many carriers charge by weight, size, and distance. There are also customs fees to consider. 

Another option would be to add a statement to the artwork Description field. Something like:
I require that buyers outside the continental USA contact me first for shipping information.


Add Shipping to Retail Price Field

This is accomplished by editing individual items listed in your FASO account Artwork Portfolio, as follows:

  • login to FASO account control panel
  • click Artwork icon
  • click the image or the word Edit for a particular piece
  • scroll down to Retail Price field
  • enter selling price including the shipping costs
  • then do one of the following:
    (1) provide a breakdown in the Description comment box section in the editing page for the artwork
    (2) mention that shipping is free in the Description comment box (this works great in this day and age of free shipping, Amazon, etc).
  • Save Changes
  • repeat for each artwork

Example: If your artwork is $1,000 and shipping is $150, you would enter the retail price as $1,150.

Under comments you could add:
Artwork: $1,000
Shipping and Handling: $150


Flat Handling Rate

Add a flat fee that will be added to each order (ie. per order, not per item).

For example:

Flat handling fee $10

1 item: $100 + $10 handling - Total $110
3 items: $300 + $10 handling = Total $310

To add a handling fee:

  • login to your FASO account Control Panel
  • click Commerce icon (upper right, shopping cart icon)

  • for Per Order Handling Amount add your dollar amount (no decimal or cents)
  • click Save Changes

Add Sales Tax In Paypal Based on the Buyer's Location

Tax calculations must be set up in your PayPal account.

  • login to your Paypal account
  • click Tools/All Tools
  • click on Run your business (left menu)
  • for Tax calculator, click on Open

  • click Add New Sales Tax below either
    • Set Up Domestic Sales Tax Rates
    • Set Up International Sales Tax Rates
  • follow the prompts

Note: Please keep in mind that PayPal changes their database without notifying us. Hopefully the above info is up to date when you need it.
