    Asked by topzonemedia on June 14, 2017 at 10:14 PM

    I have a for that is using the Unique ID widget and I need to send this information to Paypal using the payment widget. This will be used to match the payment with the form submission. I haven't found a way to make this happen with the current form settings. Any suggestions? The form in question is not yet published.

    Hello topzonemedia,

    Please note that you can take advantage of our "Fetch Data from a Text Field" option of your Paypal payment tool to pass additional form field data to PayPal payment. You need to open Paypal payment tool wizard and under "Additional Gateway Settings", you should be able to see the "Fetch Data from a Text Field" dropdown option. Please check the screenshot below:


    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
