Hiya jkirkerx,
 
I can appreciate that shipping calculation is complex, yet I was under the understanding that the best option to calculate shipping was to take the most common shipping companies ie UPS and DHL (to name two) located within the geographical areas of the sellers and then possibly to register with them for updates on price changes or to write a script that would crawl their website pages (the pages contaning the fee's) and them to save those details in an sql table or xmlrepository and use those figures based uponthe buyers selction of preferred couriers/shipping agents.
 
Having said that, I must admit I'm not that up on IT and developing having never gone to college or university for formal training. Whatever limited knowledge i have i have gained from hme study after work hours (when employed) or during freetime, from books purchased in the highstreet stores. I must admit I like the mental stimulation of having a problem and trying to resolve it by coming up with your own solution.
 
I must also admit my solutions arnt always the best hahaha, though I do try. Generally as can be expected I feel the best route is usually the tried and tested text book method, though sometimes its mind-bending to say the least, and now i'm getting older (47) the old brain isnt what it used to be!
 
As you so rightly stated in your last post, ultimately someone somewhere has to enter the data into the SQL repository (usually the seller i would assume). Alternatively the seller could choose from a predetermined list of shipping charges based uponthe couriers (DHL UPS etc).
 
As for languages, I'm not very sure but assume that the no one language is universally spoken in all of europe, your bound to find a largeamount of people who dont speak a given language and that the MOST common ones (to my knowledge) are English, German, French and Spanish. I would think if you cover those four then you have close to 70%-90% of the bases covered.
 
From the way you talk I have no doubt your knowledge of prgramming/devloping is far superior to mine and no offence was taken in your last post where you stated the obvious (that i have no idea of the complexities of shipping etc).
 
As for letting you knwo which option I choose, I'm still undecided, and unsure what to do next. This is mainly factored to funding being unemployed and (hopefully) between jobs though I dont want to get my hopes high hahaha.
 
My initial thoughts were that the seller would enter the shipping rates for shipping his/her/their goods to the buyer in a similar fashion to ebay and therfore releasing me from the tedious issue.
 
I chose website payments standard because its free to begin with apart from the transactional fee's which in all honesty is more or less an everyday thing, what with the way Pay as Go for everything is available now including cable tv and mobile phone coverage and even car insurance can be bought on a daily only basis (though i would imagine its quiet expensive)
 
I'm still chewing over what route to take, the easiest way out is to obviously purchase a third party product and implement that but its not something i can afford i should imagine.
 
EDIT:
I guess in the meantime i will keep trawling the net to find a sample that even idiots can implement hahaha
