    I've not tried this yet, but I need to add some products that are free.
    How will the system cope with this? If it won't can this be moved to the suggestions forum please?

    Thanks :D

    Update....

    Ok, can this be moved to the suggestions forum? I could really use this feature in order to finish my migration of products into xenforo.
    Pwetty please Chris?

    This was a scenario that sort of came up during beta testing, actually.

    There was an issue whereby how do you handle a discount coupon that discounts a product by 100%? And what I did then was implement a system whereby if the cart value is 0 then it should be possible to just purchase that cart without going through PayPal.

    What I didn't do, though, is remove the check while saving a product that insisted on a price being entered.

    But I have now :)

    This is actually quite flexible. Because it now opens up the possibility of providing free products with paid extras.

    Some scenarios:
    • Free product with paid branding removal or other extras (@PERuss and @Steve F this may also interest you)
    • Free product with initial support period where a renewal has to be paid thereafter
    • 100% free product but kept up to date when the product is updated (a bit like the RM)
    And the only change I made for this in the next version is to remove 3 lines of code. Awesome ;)
