    How to get the Paypal transaction ID from payment forms

    Asked by jimmynabil on April 10, 2016 at 07:13 PM
    I have a similar problem and I had contacted PayPal, the support guy said you need to pass "Item Id" as this attribute shows on PayPal history transaction reports, Only when you create PayPal button you can assign an "Item Id" for each product. I think JotForm has to figure out how they can accommodate this new attribute in their PayPal widget.

    You did not mention how you will use the Paypal transaction ID data. But I assume your initial task was to get the Transaction ID#

    You can follow the method described on the solution provided by our colleague on this thread.
