[thelist] using PayPal for event registration

Hi all,

Looking for some suggestions for PayPal coding or a free/inexpensive 
cart that works with PayPal for event registration.  My client is 
offering twelve weekend workshops over the summer.  She wants to 
offer the option to choose a second weekend if the first choice is 
already booked.  She wants to offer the option to put down a deposit 
or pay in full, and she wants to offer the option of a private room 
at additional cost.

So here are the variables:
- first choice of date
- second choice of date
- deposit
- full payment
- private room optional

As I understand it, the PayPal cart by itself can't handle options 
that increase cost, and it can only handle a maximum of 10 option 
values, so I can't use it for the 12 workshop dates.  Or am I wrong?

I want to collect all the information in one shot, and I don't want 
a forest of PayPal buttons with limited options for each -- I want 
to keep it simple.  Is it possible to code all this into one PayPal 
transaction?  If not, can anyone recommend a good cart that is 
simple and suitable for event registration, and works with PayPal?

Thanks for any help or suggestions,
