Shipping variable not working in Standard Payment process

I am trying to submit a form via standard process to Paypal and have them display the shipping cost as I pass it. I am using the _cart/upload option since I have my own shopping cart build. Everything works fine except Paypal is ignoring my shipping cost. Why is it not working? The options for shipping calculations provided by Paypal are a bit too basic and don't fit my needs. Any kind of help would be very appreciated.


Here is my form data as I submit it:

<form id="cart-form" action="" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_cart">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="VFW4GL2WUHE7G">
<input type="hidden" name="invoice" value="58444686">
<input type="hidden" name="upload" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="myemailhere"> <input type="hidden" name="rm" value="2"> <input type="hidden" name="item_name_1" value="Heat Sensitive Color Changing Smiley Face Morning Cup"> <input type="hidden" name="item_number_1" value="1005"> <input type="hidden" name="amount_1" value="12.99"> <input type="hidden" name="quantity_1" value="1">
<input type="hidden" name="shipping" value="3.99">
<input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!"> <img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1"> </form>
