At this charity single page site here I want to include an option for people to click Vegetarian. It would have worked with an E-Buy Button and shown up in the Mal’s cart except you can’t enter a Price of 0.00.
What’s an easy way to do this so it shows up in the cart, and is then included in the Notification email from PayPal?
Do you mean you want to add a variation to the product? To do this
you’d need to use the E-Buy Form on an HTML item, add a checkbox for
vegetarian inside it and then apply the E-Product Variation Action to
it (the buy button gets added to the HTML item automatically). If the
checkbox is ticked then the value of the checkbox gets added to your
hope this helps.

Thanks Joe - very helpful. Actually I just experimented and added a Button with Name/Value=Vegetarian and gave it a Price of 0.0001 which Freeway accepted and in Mal’s cart, it shows up as £0.00, which does the trick.
I’ll make a note though of your solution. Thank you.
I don’t know how this appears in the web forum view, but in my email
the ‘address’ is rather a mess!
Just type a bare URL with protocol. By this I mean http://fourspires.org.uk/ (NOT fourspires.org.uk withing the http://
part!) You don’t need to do anything else at all. It makes things
much simpler, particularly for those reading this list/forum with
heavy-duty email clients such as Eudora.
As for your problem, you may need to rethink how this is done from
the start to allow for proper form elements (popup menus, checkboxes,
etc.) so you can pass more information through the buying process.
BTW, the text on that page - it is tiny! You’re gambling on your
visitors having superb eyes and screens (most 40+ year olds would
find this noticably harder to read than someone in their 20s), and by
using a graphic rather than real text you’re kissing Google searches
Yep, I know the text is tiny. I had 4 days to artwork an 8 page DL leaflet with 4 events, an intro, a booking form and other stuff and do the website with all the Buy/ Mal’s stuff. Just didn’t have time to create a better site. I just EPS’d one side of the DL so when people visited to Buy, they at least recognised it was the same event. It’s really just for blank recognition. By the time people visit they will already have in their possession or at least seen the flyer.
I’m out of time anyway - typical committees - no idea of the real world and decision making.
