If it’s a dynamic price i.e. not fixed, then you will need to do this in JavaScript or a server side language and amend the price to the paypal button

from what i can tell you can setup a shipping account but its not added till checkout, you may want to just tell the user the shipping fees before checkout and let them add it?

This is just rate, that depends on amount of shipping product,
I need distance calculations for UPS.

I have struggled with various 3rd party scripts for this exact thing and I recommend just using the UPS API

Thanks, looks like I coming to the same conclusion,
I subscribed to the service, but didn't do anything to use it on my site.

Can you tell me, please, what kind language do I have to use to integrate
UPS API, is it advanced programing?

There's some UPS information here. You need the tracking tool, I believe

http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/bussol/offering/technology/automated_shipping/online_tools.html

Register here:

http://www.ups.com/e_comm_access/gettools_index?loc=en_US

choose the tracking tool. As the first page says, you need HTML and XML. XML is so simple, it's really only half of a programming language. A good tutorial is here:

www.w3schools.com/xml

Let me know if you run into any difficulties.

Yes, I figured with html version - simple, but I don't have
any experience with xml ( know javascript, php, ...) - wondering if you
can refer to some example specific to ups/xml.

Thanks.

UPS has email help once you are registered and have a developer's key. You can register here:

EE has a topic area for XML. They would be more helpful. Here's the link: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/XML/

Let me know if that helps.

XML is simple enough to learn. You can probably learn what you need in an hour or two. I had trouble finding code specific to UPS but I'm sure this is because this is not my area of expertise.

The w3schools link I gave you is good.

If any other experts have something to add, feel free.

A pointer question in the XML topic area would probably good.
