    can I post data to a custom thank you page after a successfull PayPal payment?

    Asked by John on March 09, 2011 at 09:13 PM

    I would like to post form data to my own database via POST, but I'm not sure of the sequence of events.  What I think happens is...

    User submits form.

    Form page is redirected to paypal.

    paypal page is redirected to custom thank you page with all my post data and payment details.


    If it works different than this is there a way to post all the data to paypal using thier custom field names on0, on1...

    This way I can use the custom redirect available from the paypal site to load my db on payment success.


    Thank you in advance
