    The discount setting of order total does not take shipping into acount so my 100% discount is not free.

    When I remove the shipping from the form altogehter it looks like the order is free, but I still get directed to PayPal.


    I have had this problem before and you have looked into it, but now it isnt working again.

    I have forwarded this to our developers to have it fixed, thank you very much for noticing that it is not working correctly at the moment and letting us know.

    We will update you on through this thread as soon as it is resolved.

    You can use discount amount (e.g., $150 off) instead of discount rate instead—like you did in the previous case.
