Deb, I never use the calculater so I can't offer help there...BUT.....ebay "live" is great.  There is a link on the home page of ebay for you to chat through a pop-up box with an ebay rep.  They'll be able to tell yo how to do it.

Things change so often on ebay it's hard to keep up.  I just heard that they will be removing "bear and dolls" will be placing all bears under "childrens toys".  I don't know.

Dear Deb,  When you get to the shipping part of the listing there is a box that offers calculated shipping or flat rate shipping, first decide which one you want, then there is another box that you pick the shipping service you want.  If you have chosen calculated by buyer location you put in the weight and when the buyer looks at the item there is a calculator at the bottom of the page, they put in their zip code.  If they are using an account that is set up with their zip code it should automatically do it for them in shipping cost at the top.  I checked some of my listings and in the place for carrier there is UPS.

I've never used the calculator since I just charge a flat fee....I just wanted to wish you Good Luck with your first ebay auction.

Good luck!
