    Hi,

     

    I want the product name in Payment Wizard setup popup to be dynamic.  The idea is that I want to pass the Firstname + Lastname to google checkout to easily track payment submissions. 

    In our form, we somtimes have cases when single person submits multiple payments.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    If I understand your idea correctly.. you wanted it dynamic to be like..

    "John Doe" + Camp 2012 Fee $1.00"  in the google checkout page.

    Unfortunatelly there is no way to do this in the form builder.

    But I think you can do some workaround if you integrate the form to google docs spreadheet.. and you can then do some "concatenation" trick in the resulting submissions to join the Full Name + Camp Fee field on a single column/field.

    Please inform us if you have more details to share.

    Thanks.

    I want to see the concaetnation done on Google's site.  I guess if we can maniulate the post entry to google checkout via php, then it would be possible but I am not able to see the Order Name in the html code.

    Somehow, I think we cannot see the order name field code in the html because it is only 1 item.. But if you make it at least 2 items, you can then see it in the form's source code 

    If you have resource for programming in PHP or Javascript, perhaps you can achieved this indeed using the form's source code.

     

    Thanks.

    Hi there,

    I tried adding two products, although it lets me change the product description in the source code, the post variable sent to Google is still showing the product description I have added in the form.

     

    I hope you can help with this.

     

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have to inform you ahead., programming the source code is no easy undertaking. You have to have the programming skill for PHP and Javascript and the knowledge for the API for google too.

    So, what you are trying to achieve on the form is bound for some setback.

    With that aside, we will try to provide you the assistance as much as we can. =)

    Can you share to us the URL of the website where you had the form embedded?

    We can check and see up to what level we can help you.

    Thanks.
