Integrating table rates shipping solution with PayPal Express - SOLVED

I’m using Magento ver. CE and PayPal Express Checkout.

For ship charges we use the table rates solution. (Price vs. Destination.)

The problem:

When customers click the Checkout With PayPal button the ship charge does not get sent to PayPal with the shopping cart subtotal. Magento hasn’t collected a shipping location yet, so I don’t think the table rates get a chance to be determined.

If the customer uses the “Estimate Shipping and Tax” and selects a method and clicks “Update Total” before clicking the Checkout With PayPal button, then the proper amount does get sent. However, this is not a solution as I’m sure most customers won’t perform all of those actions.

Any help? Thanks!

Update: Never mind. I see that if I had proceeded further in the process the customer does return to Magento to confirm addresses, select a shipping method, and finalize payment.
