[ic] User Specified Price?
Thu, 8 Mar 2001 09:56:50 -0500
Why not set up a "Donation" as just like a "Gift Certificate". IIRC,
Gift Certificates cost $1.00. The user can choose to buy 15 of them in order
to get a $15 gift certificate. So just set up a "Donation" product that
works the same way, except it doesn't give to customer anything.
Hope this helps,
