    How can I configure my notifier to include details about the Paypal transactions of my form?

    Asked by fggh on November 10, 2014 at 07:44 PM

    Question 2 -

    I have setup a notification and it will send along all the details I'm collecting in the form.  What I'm not sure about is if the field tag that I should be appending "transactionid" to.

    http://form.jotform.ca/form/43136694465260

    I'm using a "Sell products" paypal feature in my Jotform.  It has the total displayed and the user can select the quanity.

    The form label in my notifier is {selectTicket}.  I'm just wondering if this will display the number of tickets that the person ordered. 

    Do I add another line in the notifier that is {selectTicket:transactionid} to tell me what the Paypal id was for that transaction.  Is that how it will work?

    Hello fggh,

    The first part of your question on how to receive the PayPal transaction ID, I have already answered in your following thread:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/457180?entrymessage=10732640770 

    The tag "{selectTicket}" of your form will display all the transaction details i.e selected product, qty and the payer details as well. If you need to know the PayPal transaction id, you should use the following tag "{selectTicket:transactionid}".

    Hope this answers your query.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
