Hello Kevin,

Thanks for your input again.

As I said in an earlier email, I managed to splice some code together so
that "Place Order" takes you to www.paypal.com with all the fields bar
credit card details loaded.

Also the "Payment For" (on the Paypal page) looks like this:

2 NF-131 L-Arginine Powder 1 lb 2 OL-004 Aller G Formula 25 75 caps 1
VA-053 Valeo Body Ball 55 centimeters

In other words it really gives almost all the info needed for me to keep
doing business until I get better organized (in spite of the interchange
cart being abandoned).

Currently I am paying $18 a month in PayPal fees for $512 in purchases.
Just in that twilight zone before starting to do well, I think this is a
handy tool. I might post the code on my site if anyone is interested,
