    Do I get PayPal transaction ID from POST data when redirected to my custom Thank You page?

    Asked by Auri on January 15, 2014 at 07:08 AM

    My form has a PalPal payment widget on it. I have a custom Thank You page set up for my form.

    When that page receives the POST data, will it include the PayPal transaction ID, and any other PayPal info? If so, which will it contain?

    Thanks and Best,

    -Auri

    Hello Auri, 

    Thank you for contacting us. 

    It will not, since this information will be sent by Paypal (should they pay using their paypal account, or enter an email during the CC payment)

    However, you can customize the Thank you page to contain the information you want by following this guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/201-How-to-Post-Answers-to-Thank-you-Page

    And with a little PHP, you could post the data to a Custom Thank you page: http://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-POST-Data-From-JotForm-Using-PHP-in-Custom-Thank-You-Page

    Does this clarify things?

    Please let us know.
