Paypal Pro: Custom Field on PayPal payment

    Asked on November 12, 2018 at 03:15 AM

    Hi Support Team,

    I'm trying to integrate with PayPal using the "PayPal Pro" payments element. I would like a custom value to be passed on from my form to PayPal. For example - invoice number the payment is related to. I found information, that this can be done using "Fetch Data from a Text Field" option, but I can't see this option.

    Can you help me out with this, please?

    Many Thanks

    This option is not available for PayPal Pro, it is only available for PayPal standard integration:

    Thanks David. Is there any other way to utilize custom fields in PayPal pro integration?

    It would not be possible to fetch data from an external field to Paypal Pro.

    However, you can associate a field to a calculation widget with a User Defined Amount.


    It should display this confirmation page (in order to notify that it would remove existing items from Paypal):
