      Hi Carlos,

      This is not currently possible with the shop tool. You will need to ensure tax is included in the product price.

      Cheers,

    Hi guys,
    I need some help – I’m pretty new to all this and I’ve taught myself so far…
    I have my site up and running (paid for an external domain as I didn’t realise you offered it as I have the lite plan) and I have a shop page,
    I want the postage to be automatically applied now, depending on weight. How do I do this? I think it looks amateur at the moment where I have to write on my description choose option A for postage.

    Thanks
    Vicki

      Hi Vicki,

      Unfortunately it is not currently possible to set shipping by weight – sorry about that. As a workaround I would usually encourage the postage for heavier items to be incorporated in to the cost of the item if possible.

      Cheers,

      Steven

    Hi Steven, just wondering if Moonfruit are planning to upgrade the shop function at some stage to include more payment methods (specifically eWay), shipping options (adding variables such as weight), etc? I currently use a 3rd party shop on 4 Moonfruit sites but it would be nice to keep it all with Moonfruit.
    Cheers

      Hi Michelle
      Apologies for the delay – I’ve asked for an update from our development team on shop features and will post when I’ve heard back.

    Hi, If you buy one of the packages that offers 5 websites. Do you get one shop only or do you get a shop for each website?

    If you only get a shop for one website, are you able to purchase additional shops like an add on for the other websites that you can make as part of the package?

    Thanks

    Hey,
    How can I find out what the notification looks like when someone buys a product? I want to know if the shop option is going to be suitable for me, but this is obviously a key element that I can’t find anywhere!
    Thanks

      Hi Chris. You get an email from PayPal with the order details. You will need to fill out the SKU codes for your shop products before you set it live though so that you can identify what was purchased. HTH.
