Paypal Website Payments Standard in the UK

I was messing about with the Paypal “Website Payments Standard” yesterday, looking at a possible small scale trial on a site. Really easy to set up, but then I tried to do two more things, specifically, restrict orders to “home country” customers only, and calculate postage by weight.

After a lot of reading of help files and Googling, I eventually find that both these options are only supported for US customers – the “shipping by weight” despite it being all over the help pages and even giving you the option on screen – which then has no effect.

Thanks Paypal…

Useful? Interesting? Leave me a comment

I've yet to find a way of allowing code snippets to be pasted into Wordpress comments - so if you're trying to do this you'd be better off using the contact form.
