PayPal not show items with price $0.00

PayPal not show items with price $0.00

I just went live with a new website using eCart and PayPal Standard. I am successfully running transactions through PayPal with one exception. I have items that have zero dollar amounts included with the buyer's order. These items are displayed and stored properly within eCart but when the invoice is sent to PayPal (i.e. 4 items selected for purchase, 2 are priced at $0.00) only the items with a dollar amount are shown on PayPal's order summary page.

Is this a PayPal problem or do I need to change something to allow the zero dollar items to be sent to PayPal? PayPal say this scenario works when using there invoicing.

paypal payments standard will not accept an item amount that is 0.00 or a negative value when passing shopping cart information.

Item amounts must be a positive value of 0.01 or more for paypal standard to display it in the cart.
