FAQ

Q: Why do I need Chose Your Own Price when I can just create a $1 item and have people buy as many as they want?
A: There are a couple of disadvantages to the $1 item solution. First of all, it is less intuitive than Choose Your Own Price. Second of all, when multiple $1 products are bought, they are not broken out the way they are with my solution. For example, you buy 3 $5 gift cards, priced at $1, they show up as a single $15 item. With my solution, they show up as 3 $5 gift cards.
