    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?

    It is not possible to pass fields to PayPal. I added this to our suggestions list. Thanks.

    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?

    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?
