I've got both the UPS & Fedex real time shipping addons running and I added a surcharge of 5$ to the ASP for both of them... Works great! Unless of course you order more than one item from my store, in which case you get to pay the surcharge for each item!

So.. if I were to add three items to my cart, weighing a total of 11 lbs, and I clicked on Fedex real time shipping and brought up the menu to select the rate, the calculator would go off to Fedex, grab a rate (lets say 15$ for ground), and then add the surcharge to that in triplicate...giving a result of 30$!!! Aieeee!

Does anyone know how to make this surcharge deal apply only once per shipment rather than on a per-product basis?

Alternately, how might I just integrate the handling fee function of the cart into the shipping on the checkout page (i.e. instead of breaking out shipping and handling as separate items, they would be combined into one?---therefore bypassing this surcharge business entirely).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
