    Both of the URL's in both examples appear to be the same.  Both URL's to prefill the form also worked.  If you don't mind a couple test submissions through your form, I will be happy to have a look.  As far as I can tell though, both links lead to the same page and should function the same.

    Sorted! Needed to change how I embeded it for some strange reason. 


    One strange thing that is happeneing however, when i get an email and it links me the data of what they entered in the URL - https://www.customlogoshop.com/order-checkout?input50[price]=338&input49=Total: $338.00 USD&email=customlogoshop@googlemail.com


    the price just disappears when I click it (its hidden behind total:$338 USD but as you can see the URL does not contain the amount that was on the link - input50[price]=338

    That's great to know. But I don't understand the other issue. Is it a link through email or when it's viewed? The price is there and doesn't disappear when I click on it. I'm using Google Chrome.

    Please see image. The price for stripe is underneath the blue price part. 


    The link clearly shows that it should be inserted into there but it doesnt. However, it does when I go through the form process, just not when I click the link created for people to go back and finish off their order.

    I checked the link in both FireFox and Chrome, both showed the total without issue:

    As far as I can tell, the link provided works as expected.   Does it still show blank if you try a different browser?

    The box is underneath the blue text part. Please see the image I attached earlier, I deleted the blue text and that is underneath (its underneath the total) - which should be q50_input50[price]

    I opened the URL 


    and just like my colleague I see the populated field with value as well.

    The Textox field name is q49_input49


    I think you were looking at a different thing on your screenshot.

    Can you also include the URL address when you take the screenshot image. We will check further once we know more details.

    We're not looking at that I said it was underneath. Can't you tell by the URL that input50 is not fillled correctly? 


    Where you've selected the total in google inspect, delete that row and you'll see it UNDERNEATH. Like I said before, we're not looking at that, we're looking at the field under it which is hidden because that is placed over it. 


    I have highlighted the link. See how it changes when you click too

    Our forum software uses a rich text editor, same as our forms, and I see that the link you have actually posted is different from the link it is set to point to. Being a rich text editor allows links to be used in this manner, where the text that appears can be anything, while the link it is set to point to is the one that opens when clicking the link.

    Your provided link has this as its text:

    https://www.customlogoshop.com/order-checkout?input50[price]=338&input49=Total: $338.00 USD&email=customlogoshop@googlemail.com

    While it is actually pointing to this link:

    https://www.customlogoshop.com/order-checkout?input50[price]=&input49=Total: $338.00 USD&email=customlogoshop@googlemail.com

    Simply put, if you want to pass a value of 338 to the input50 field, your actual link should be this:

    https://www.customlogoshop.com/order-checkout?input50[price]=338&input49=Total: $338.00 USD&email=customlogoshop@googlemail.com

    If this is a link you are using in your autoresponse emails, or on a Thank You page of one of your forms, please make sure you have correctly entered your desired link in the rich text editor. You can edit any links inside our forms by clicking on the link, and then on the chain-looking icon in teh toolbar above, as depicted in the following image:

    For example, I see that the link in the email notification you are using has this set as its actual URL:


    While this is the text that it displays:


    Please make sure to update both the URL and the text of your link, and let us know should you experience any further issues. Thank you.
