    How to pass form fields to PayPal?

    Asked by firstexperience on June 04, 2010 at 09:57 AM
    How can I pass the values from fields such as "First Name", "Last Name" and "Address" from my JotForm to the PayPal checkout page? Is there someplace they need to be mapped?

    Can you offer any other suggestions? We just need it to be more descriptive than just Donation Amount. How is that populated? Maybe I can dynamically change it with javascript before the form is submitted?

    @hopehouse,

    Unfortunately, beyond amount, name & email address it is not possible to pass any additional data to paypal.

    Can you not just use the information in the associated notification email?
