Thanks for your response. I actually fixed the 1st problem -- Linkpoint couldn't receive a "chargetotal" with a monetary sign "$" in it. So now checkout works fine, but my confirmation email does not display anything except for customer shipping & billing info., and amt. charged.
I can't imagine what I'm doing wrong. I've disabled the tax option so that the checkout page string/address? is static, not dynamic. Could this be the cause? As a Linkpoint user, I'd imagine that I don't even need to configure checkout.pl, let alone place it in my CGI folder, right?
My sample shopping cart site is http://www.brownestanebooks.com/suppliers_lighters.htm

Thanks in advance for your help,
