    You may consider the following options:

    1) Setup a total amount calculation based on standard form fields. Then, pass the calculated total to the PayPal field.

    + You can use any standard fields with styling.


    - Product names will not be forwarded to PayPal.

    2) Add an HTML text description to your current form to describe the products.

    3) Get a source code of the form to modify it per your requirements. In this case you will need to host the modified version of the form by yourself.
