shipping and handling calculations ?

P: n/a
In shopping cart I have a Product Quantity and Unitcost per product.

Should I calculate shipping (per item weight * Quantity) for each item or should I add up total weight and calculate shipping rate. See my examples,

e.g (1)

ProductID Quantity Weight(per item) subtotal calculate Shipping rate
1 3 0.5 lb 1.5 lb $ 1.30 (e.g)
2 2 1 lb 2 lb $ 2.00

Or

e.g (2)

ProductID Quantity Weight(per item) subtotal
1 3 0.5 lb 1.5 lb
2 2 1 lb 2 lb

calculate Shipping rate $ 3.00 (e.g)

Any ideas...

Are there any webservices for UPS, USPS or FedEx to query shipping and Handling rates..

Thank you.
