Hi,

I am using OpenCart v1.5.1 and am testing the Gift Voucher functionality for if a customer uses a gift voucher against a purchase that is worth LESS than the value of the gift voucher.

I have bought a £5 gift voucher, and have been sent the code successfully,
I have bought an item worth less than the gift voucher (which customers might conceivably do) - a test item worth £0.01
I apply the gift voucher and it sets my basket to £0.00 as expected.
When I go to checkout I end up at PayPal with the total being £0.01 so the voucher reduction has been lost.

If I try to apply the gift voucher for an amount larger (so that there is a payment required greater than zero in PayPal) it works fine and applies the deduction.

Can anyone help me and tell me what I am doing wrong? Help!

What happens if the price of the product is like $0.05 or something?
Maybe its a paypal thing that it requires you to pay atleast 1 cent?

Yes I am beginning to think PayPal doesn't like zero orders. When I apply the discount to an order and the order is above zero it works fine. Tried with a £30 order discounted to £25 and it worked fine.

Is there any way to make OpenCart bypass the payment process if the order == zero?

As far as i am concerned that'd be a perfect solution, as there's no need to go to PayPal.

Client is only using Paypal so that''s all I need to do? Set PayPal to minimum of 0.01 and activate Free Checkout?

Thanks SO much! Seriously, I was getting very worried about this!

You are a legend.

setting the amount to 0.01 is fine.

I decided to go and edit all my payment files with the change in that link so that incase of a numpty client who forgets to enter an amount it works it out for them automatically.

Ah I see so you mean your changes covers if a client doesn't put 0.01 in the PayPal module in the admin system?
