Well we spent a few hours trying various things as suggested in various forum postings here. Nothing worked without errors – we were able to remove the fields but not the requirement for them to be entered. So we’re hoping you’ll come up with that bypass.
Perhaps it would be useful if I explain the requirement a little further. We have a membership site using eMember. Probably (I’m guessing) like many of your users, we have multiple membership levels and associated with those levels are various discounts on products. At the top level, our download products (audio files) are free. We produce about four audio files a week (we have hundreds) and all are eligible for free download. In addition, from time to time (often), we offer certain files for free to other members or membership levels as promotions. The Coupon system in eStore potentially gives us the flexibility we need to do all of this with a minimum of manual administration – which would be perfect except for that !**##!! Confirm Order form. (-: Hopefully you can see that as soon as we start talking about workarounds for a few specific products, we lose just about all of that flexibility.
It seems that this requirement was perhaps not considered when the zero cost procedure was designed. What we’d like to do is bypass that form altogether, and I’m hoping you can come up with a way to do that. In the meantime, today we’ll do some work on modifying it as you suggest to see if that gives us something temporarily workable.
Option 1 is what we are trying – but that mandatory Confirm Order screen is not appropriate for a download free product. This is what we would like to bypass. Options 2-4 apply to particular products only and that is not our situation.
There are many circumstances under which we want to download a product for free .. for 1 or more downloads of any product, for 1 particular product download, for a certain period of time etc. etc. The Store/Coupon system gives us this flexibility, but unless I’m getting it wrong, not the squeeze page option. (In our case, ALL products are eligible and we don’t want to do a custom page for each one of them). The manual checkout you discuss here seemed like the answer, but it’s not really workable with a Confirm Order form with all those mandatory fields – none of which apply to a digital product for free. Is there a way to bypass/customize that form?
