    Basically no options or total from the purchased items are coming through via email from jotform. 

    Would make it easier if options were included.


    Sample of email from jotform:
    Question Answer
    Sponsor a Mouse (Fill out Name field below) (Quantity: )
    Total: $0.00

    ==Payer Info==
    First Name Mark
    Last Name Willard

    Hello Bryan, I found this comment on a similar thread:

    "You need to enable IPN in your Paypal account. JotForm needs confirmation from Paypal that a user has completed payment before displaying payment data in your form's submission page and sending you an e-mail notification"

    And here is a set of detailed instructions that another member of our team posted on another related thread:

    - Log-in to your merchant account
    - Click Profile
    - On the right side, click "Instant Payment Notification Preferences"
    - You'll see a page explaining IPN features, click "Choose IPN Settings" button at the bottom.
    - Put following URL in the "Notification URL" box:
    - Select "Receive IPN messages (Enabled)"

    - Click Save.

    If after setting your IPN in your Paypal account and the problem still persists, please let us know!

    That makes sense however the instructions for finding th IPN is not correct for my account. With some research I was able to find the settings here:

    I have updated my settings and hopefully this will now work.
