Submitting Null Form Element Value
I'm using Paypal's standard payment method to run a very simple shopping cart for a site.
The checkout process has 3 items - item_name_1, item_name_2, item_name_3
My problem is that paypal insists that you submit items in order 1/2/3 and I'm currently using checkboxes with corresponding i_n_1, i_n_2 etc...
If a user does not want product 1 but DOES want 2 and 3 then they get sent to paypal but the cart is empty since item_name_1 wasn't posted.
What would be my easiest bet for making sure that items get sent in numerical order?
Should I send the item with a value of 0.00 or is there an easy JS trick to rename the items 1, 2, 3 accordingly as they are checked?

You should use the Paypal supplied "Add to Cart" functionality to add the selected entries to the shopping cart rather than hard coding the names yourself. The _1 _2 etc get added to the ends of the field names by the cart processor as the entries are added.
