How do I create a zero dollar PO? Gateway won't allow me to enter $0.00 in the dollar field.

Somtimes a supplier will need a zero dollar purchase order.

Gateway will not accept a "0.00" dollar value, as it does not understand wanting to buy something that does not cost anything.

To "trick" the system, simply enter in a quantity of "1" and a price of "0.001". When added to your cart, the extended price will round to "0.00" dollars, which is what the supplier receives on the Purchase Order.

Make sure to enter in a quantity of "1", anything more than that will effect the rounding.

What is a toxin?

A toxin is a poisonous substance produced within living cells or organisms. Toxins can be small molecules, peptides, or proteins that are capable of causing disease on contact with or absorption by human tissues. Examples of toxins: abrin, botulinum toxin, diacetoxyscirpenol, ricin, shiga toxin, tetanus toxin, tetrodotoxin.

Toxins are of biological origin. Man-made substances are not toxins. Toxic substances not produced within living organisms are labeled as "toxicants" or "toxics."
