Match forms with Stripe transactions

    Last year, we used PayPal to accept payments for our big event. Jotform was able to send an identifier (invisible on the form) so that we could track which payment came from which person.

    It's all detailed in this thread:

    This year, we're moving on (hopefully) to Stripe (we've got a beta account for Australia). From my testing, we seem to have the same issue in that there is no identifier to match up what people are paying for.

    I noticed that Stripe has a "Description" field in their payment detail information. Is it possible to pass a unique identifier to that field?

    Edited: Hmm, maybe this is not required...if you drill down into the customer information in Stripe, it shows which "products" were purchased. Still, the ID would be a quick & easy help.

    Thank you for the input, I will do some further research about the possibility of passing the ID through the transaction. Once I have more information on this I will let you know through this thread. Thank you.
