hoping someone may have an answer for me.  i have tried both the kasoweaver and web assist extensions and neither seem to have one functionality.  i would like to be able to add multipiple items to a cart but only have one flat shipping rate and not have it add all the shipping rates of each item.  any ideas?

    Key line of the code is :         <input type="hidden" name="handling_cart" value="4.95">

    It set the standard handling fee for the cart.

    Full code below (All the details are provided by paypal for the different fields you can send to the payapl cart.)

          <form target="paypal" action="" method="post">
            <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart">
            <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="background papers &raquo; blue gingham background">
            <input type="hidden" name="business" value="">
            <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="BP016">
            <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="0.35">
            <input type="hidden" name="return" value="">
            <input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
            <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="GBP">
            <input type="hidden" name="add" value="1">
            <input type="hidden" name="handling_cart" value="4.95">

    You have a cart button for every item, include the 'handling_cart' with all of them, and you will get one flat shipping rate .
