    We offer shipping in bands by value. We send most of our posters rolled up, but we would like to add an option such as "Send my posters packaged flat" for an extra $5. Is this possible. It's roughly equivalent to offering an express upsell. Any ideas?

    I would add it on the product page as an extra product in the form.

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    The best place may depend on your product page layouts. If the offer would be obvious you might include it with products. If it might be missed, then your upsell suggestion seems reasonable although the offer will be visible in the cart whether or not posters are there. So word it carefully.

    I suggest some tests to see whether the 'product' affects your value bands. It appears that the upsell can be on the cart page or the payment page and the treatment might be different. I haven't done any experiments so if you do some your conclusions would be welcome here.

    Depending on your treatment of the bands, you may be able to have another table with charges simply being $5 higher.
