giving away free products

My client has decided that they want the featured and popular pods to have their printed catalogues in them, and they want to give them away free of charge... they will also be posted free of charge.

If I add these free catalogues to the products table, and a customer wants to receive the catalogues only, they add them to the cart, this will mean I have a cart that has a zero value; will the cart still try to connect to the payment gateway to take payment, or will the cart recognise that there are free goods in it and bypass the gateway?

Following on from this requirement, is there a way to easily change the popular product to a second featured product instead of it auto-populating based on sales? I've tried, but can't seem to achieve it!

So within the featuredbox.php I have copied the sql select statment and pasted it into the popularbox.php sql statement and added LIMIT 2,1, but it's not working!

Have you got any advice for this along with the payment gateway question?

Thanks.

Power Store wont bypass the gateway for a 0.00 dollar cart by default, but this would be pretty easy to accomplish, I'll start an incident so we can help you with this.

for the popular product, just put through an order or 2 for 1000000000 of the product that you want to force into the popular position.

OK, thanks Jason.

We were able to work through this in a connect meeting.

It was just a matter of adding:

<?
if ($WA_Store_Cart->GrandTotal() == 0) {
$GLOBALS['WAGLOBAL_Gateway'] = 0;
}
?>

To the top of the pages:
webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/checkout_form.php
webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/cart_readonly.php
webassist/plugins/shopping_cart/process_transaction.php

(note: the code needs to be placed immediately below the ->GetContent() call for the cart.)

I am also trying to get my cart to work with free products. I have followed the directions above but it still gives me the error that the transaction failed.

Any help would be appreciated

Anyone have any idea how I can fix this? The store is live and I'd rather not shut it down if I can find a quick fix.

Thanks

Jason, how and where do you want these files sent? I can't upload them here, nor can I find an email address to send them to.
