    Unfortunately the unique ID widget data cannot be included in the PayPal data.  The only way to pass data to this field is via the calculation widget and this data is passed to PayPal as a donation/service payment amount. 

    It is possible to include the widget in email notifications and autoresponders, but not in the PayPal data.

    Let us know if you have any further questions and we will be happy to help.
