PayPal Bug: PayPal Shipping Calculator does not work when using PayPal Preferences option
Issue: If you are selling items using the PayPal cart and your items are set to use the Shipping Calculator preferences in your PayPal account, items added to your cart may not properly display the Shipping and Tax options for your items in the PayPal Cart window.
Workaround: Log into your PayPal account, then click Merchant Services. Edit your "Shipping Calculator" preferences as follows:
Edit each of your shipping preset to toggle the default setting:
"Use the shipping fee in the transaction instead of my calculator's settings:"
Set it to "No".
Then Save your presets, and your PayPal buttons should now work again on your website.
