Hi everybody, I'm hoping somebody can help.

I would like to have a non-hosted PayPal add to cart button with a drop down box for multiple color options (green, blue, red). I would like the first of these added to cart (example: green) to be $4.00 S&H. Then, I'd like any additionals (for example red), regardless of what color, to add only $0.50 to the total S&H.

Right now, I'm using the variable shipping2=0.50 in the button's form code, but this does not work right. The $0.50 shipping only applies when more than one of the same color is added. So, for example if I select one green, then one red, from the same button, the shipping ends up being $8.00 instead of the $4.50 I want.

If this is not possible with PayPal's standard button code, is there a small javascript or something of the sort that can calculate this without being too complex?

Thank you for any help!

PS: I definitely do not need a full cart system or anything of that nature and I am not able to use the automatic "Shipping Calculations" override from inside my PayPal profile in this specific situation.
