    Custom field: From field data passed to Paypal transaction.

    Asked by Natasha Cyr  on March 26, 2014 at 09:30 AM

    Hello, I came upon the answer below in the thread 269628.  But when I came to test it on my form


    the Custom Field property does not exist.

    My goal is to have the name of the players for which the payment is made on the Paypal payment confirmation.

    It is now possible to pass form field data to a Paypal transaction. Simply right-click on your form's payment module then choose 'Show Properties'.

    Note: only text box, hidden box, and unique ID fields are allowed.

    Hello Natasha

    To use the custom field you need first to create a field (can be a text box, hidden box or Unique ID fields) and then select that field in the paypal properties:


    You are currently using a Full name field and this field is still not accepted. If you replace it for a text box field, the custom field option will become available.

    Let us know if we can be of more assistance.

    Thank you
