    Is it possible for the camper name to be listed on the payment summary as well?

    Asked by fsaelite on January 11, 2014 at 08:29 PM

    I just set up my form for summer camp registration. I am using paypal for customers to pay. When testing - and I get to PayPal it lists only the product name and the price. Is it possible for the camper name to be listed on the payment summary as well?

    I noticed in the 'Properties' of the payment on the form builder it has an option for 'Custom Field' which says: 'Form field data passed to Paypal transaction' - seems to be exactly what I am looking for, but I cannot get it to work. It also only lists 3 random fields to choose from.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hi fsaelite,

    That's how PayPal works. The rest information like names will be sent to you via email once the payment has been successfully completed at Paypal.

    About your second concern, that feature only reads "text" & "unique ID" fields. That's the reason why it only shows the 4 text fields on your form. That's mainly used to pass data to your Paypal checkout like for example, if you'd like to pass a unique ID, you can enable that feature.

    Hope this helps. Regards!
