    hello!

    I'm offering a bag of beads for $2.99, free shipping. but I don't want the customer to buy 100 packs and get free shipping. What do I do after this? *using Advanced shipping by zone options.

    <input type="hidden" name="product[]1" value="Stick Pin Sample Pack">
    <input type="hidden" name="scode" value="PINSAMPLES">
    <input type="hidden" name="price" value="2.99">
    <input type="hidden" name="units" value="0">

    TIA!

    I don't know if it's possible without adding a maximum order level to the product.

    You could use discountpr and put the price up for quantities above 1. Add a message that only one sample is available at that price with free shipment.

    Make sure the scode is unique. I think at one time any products that used discountpr and had the same scode were lumped together.

    Alan , thanks~

    I no sooner posted this, someone did it~
    I can get the free shipoing to work, no problem, but how do I get the cart to calculate shipping when they change the quantity to "2" at summary? Therein lies my problem...the cart doesn't know to add postage after the fact...

    also, I need to know where is a link to view and try the discountpr code setup or addmulti.cfm?

    Thanks~

    Why not use noqty so they cannot change the number in the cart?

    I was thinking that they would be penalised if they tried to order more than one. Your increased price could dwarf any shipping charges.

    For help on discountpr and addmulti click on Support, top right. Then on Creating Buy Now buttons, then the HTML form link.
