    How to send a Custom field with PayPal transaction

    Asked by ecocolors on August 26, 2015 at 03:30 PM

    I create a PAYPAL form also add API keys

    but I need also to add a date/time so clients cand selecd the day of the tour they are going to purchase.

    also I need an extra text field for the hotel name(pickup) and once they click send in the paypal form these information goes also to the paypal checkout page with the products and client data.

    Is possible to add extra fields to the Jofform Paypal form?

    or

    I add the date time textfield but it seems that is out of the paypal POST method, there is a way to have this extra fields and once the send button of the Paypal button is clicked I can send the content of the date time field with the paypal info?

    Hope you can help me soon .

    Warm regards!

    Unfortunately, the short answer is no, we cannot dynamically generate product name nor the product description.

    Although, you can silently forward a custom field to the PayPal. The data will be only visible to you in Transaction Details via PayPal seller account.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.

    Hello, thank you for the example, but  I try  using the calculation, but not sure if I'm missing somthing the data of the date/time fieldand pickup hotel are not passing to the paypal checkin page, if you can take a look in the next link:

    http://cancunandtherivieramaya.com/tour/whale-shark-adventure/

    Go to the tab "Prices" and is where I have the jotform  form.

     

    I follow the same steps in the video but only the data of the product and total goes in the paypal check in page, for my case i need to add the tour date  and hotel pickup at least in the description once they get in the paypal checkin page.

    Hope you can help me with this.

     

    Warm regards!

    Hi Miguel,

     

    Are you associated with the ecocolors account? The website you posted shows a "We are working on something awesome" maintenance page. Can you give us your form URL  or attach a screenshot of the form with issue so we can further check?

     

    We will wait for your response.

     

    Regards.

    Unfortunately, we do not provide such functionality with our PayPal forms.

    Forwarded 'custom field' data is only viewable/accessible from transaction details on seller's account.

    Thank you.
