    My client has 3 sizes of painting that will have a flat shipping fee of $5, $10 or $15.00. She doesn't want to add the shipping to the cost of the item(DRAT!) and wants the shipping to show as a separate amount. My thought is to use Option 3 and assign 5.00 per unit so I can assign 1,2 or 3 units to the paintings. I've always set this kind of cart up in pulldown menus so I need a refresher on how to assign units to a buy now link. Do I just add &unit=1 to the link?

    Also is there a better way to do it?

    1) Almost. It's &units=
    2) No.

    I assume that 2 or the smallest will cost 2*5, and a smallest and a largest will cost 5+15..
