    How to collect some more data and integrate it with PayPal?

    Asked by tony  on March 28, 2014 at 11:44 PM



    I have a paypal premier account and I saw inside my paypal account that I could setup a BUY button on my website.

    But ... I need to collect some more data from my customers like:


    1. Email

    2. URL

    3. Description

    4. File upload


    Im selling advertising space on a unique website.


    So, therefore I need my customers to include the things mentioned above
    (point 4 = banner).


    Do you offer a solution for me to create a form like this with my paypal premier account?


    Kind Regards Tony

    Hello Tony,

    I can see that PayPal in your site works perfectly it redirects the user to paypal page after hitting Buy Now. If you want to include 4 fields that you mention above you need to build a form using our form builder and embed your form into your website. You can also follow the guidelines provided by my colleague in his previous post.
