    How to display paypal transaction amount in autoresponder email

    Asked by Masalamedia on December 11, 2013 at 02:06 PM

    What do I need to put in my autoresponder email to display ONLY the amount of a paypal transaction, rather than the ill-formatted Paypal data that starts with "==Payer Info==" etc.


    I just want to merge into my thank you letter something like:


    Dear John:

    Thank you for donating $1.99 to the cause.




    I am sure this has been asked before, but a search on your forums for obvious phrases like "paypal amount in email" or "paypal transaction amount in autoresponder" fails to provide helpful info.

    Please take a look at the following tutorial:

    How to Strip Payment Labels and Separate Payment Info on Email Alerts

    In your case the PayPal Total tag is supposed to be {giftAmount:total}.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know. Thank you.
