Silvershop - Free / Zero-Price Products & Orders

Go to End

Is it possible to have free products and/or free orders?

Our shop has purely digital products (no shipping costs to worry about), and would like to occasionally offer free promotions, either on select products or using coupons via the Discounts module (which we have set up and is working fine).

Problem 1: Products (or rather, our digital products which are actually a Buyable implementation) with zero price do not get added to the shopping cart. No errors are produced, it simply doesn't get added. Is this a core limitation of Silvershop, that things without a price are not considered valid cart items?

Problem 2: Orders with zero price cannot be completed, payment fails with "This order cannot be paid for". Which makes sense of course since there is nothing to pay for. But is there a way for "free orders" to then bypass payment entirely?

Thanks in advance for any and all help!
