$0.00 final price = Skip payment?
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:09:17 am »
I've seen some fixes for VirtueMart 1.0.x that do this, however I cannot find any for 1.1. Currently I'm just using the PayPal payment process only, and of course PayPal throws up when you try to pay $0.00 towards something. I will need to support paying for items (so bypassing by using $0.00 pay on delivery wont be an option).

Any ideas for 1.1? Is it included and I'm just not finding the right options? Thanks.

Some people offer coupons or free things alongside pay-for items, as opposed to having two entirely separate systems, it's easier to just list them as free in virtumart.

Not something thats uncommon reading these forums and seeing the fix for this in 1.0.x

I'd also like to be able to do this...

I'm working on a download site (for files I own the copyright to), and would like to offer some "samples" for free... but would still like people to go through the checkout process in order to get the file.

I quote!
Free items are a clever way to increase the traffic to the site. These items must be inserted among the commercial ones and get with the others into the same session, but if the total is $0.00 (only free items or the presence of a coupon) the payment must be skipped.
Thanks for the help.

Waiting for a better solution I put the free download as an additional file. I hacked the flypage and the Cart is not displayed when additional files are present.Cons: I don't know the statistics of those downloads.

Can you tell us the hack you used on the flypage?
