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?

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.
