As far I am aware, this wouldn't be allowed. I had heard that that scheme
was a possible model for selling small ticket items, but a spokesperson for
BT said that they couldn't legally do that. So unless things have changed
since January...

The BTClickFree service is tied in with discounts from Value Direct,
exclusive to ClickFree subscribers. More firms are set to sign deals with
BT/Click in this way. And, of course, no matter what percentage BT take
from the sales, a subscription-free Internet account is a money-spinner - a
Net call typically takes a lot more time than a local voice call and both
are charged at the same rates.
