    Ideally I'd like to modify "description" of transaction rather than append meta data (I'm recieving donations rather than selling products). In the meantime I used the above method and have a hidden field (with default value) that labels the transaction "Web-Donation". I can see in my jotform submissions that is assigned. However in stripe the metadata is:

    "haZQGDKVaCqKAkh1E8ueuHK7rQUBaJ2w+2emrX4VET6sKKt1zjZhW7Q2i8LqTDRJq0PGFT1P5c1eZKjQKWhTAeQH0kyNTET3sqJfsVnyFkGSPf9EiamiZSgrSQDGhzH5KWNp+iPRiyT7D9z0NapH4smE44taIq+/BByTT5tjbWbBi0J1zR6ykIz5VWpSF0lSG6CWf/IdrEnr50YO6dJctUQHI4ebPs1LTYJDmJBqc0K1Amg6GGho13EqBF3n9uUznadCYRbATO7OZozoFqM/R2VlPcPaKPOF06ZUd9rud3buY29LMZWYAk3Fq8gSN8optO+knZNA4xLkv6zbob5JdQ=="

    Hello, From what you have shared, it seems that the data is sent encrypted to Stripe. If you would like to send custom data to Stripe, please consider lifting encryption setting on your form. Generally, if encryption is enabled, the data will be encrypted right on the form before it gets submitted. Here is the full guide: Encrypted-Forms-and-How-to-Use-Them
