justgonz created the topic: Passing data from form to PayPal checkout

Hi Crosstec!

I have read a several post regarding this topic but for the life of me cannot get it to work, so I am starting another topic on this.

I have a few forms, of which I am attempting to pass the data along from those fields to the PayPal checkout process.

The built in information that is available (such as price, item ID) pass along with the inherit system, but I need the data entered from the user passed along also: Name, Age, Week, Time, etc.., so that when the purchase is complete, the school receives complete information on the student.

*Please note that I am using 2 pages in each form (not sure if this is where my issue is coming from), so that I can include a Terms & Conditions.

The package is included here, of which I have included 2 scenarios:

1. summerCamp_Short:

Page 1 - Collecting the following information:
  • Student Name
  • Student Age
  • Contact Phone Number
  • Week
  • Time

Page 2 - Terms & Conditions:
  • Display Terms & Conditions
  • Checkbox to agree to said Terms...
  • PayPal button

I just need all of the information from Page 1 to show up in PayPal during check out. Currently I just get the hardcoded info from the form properties: Price and Item ID. Price for all options here are the same so I hardcoded the price using the form properties.

In the next scenario I need to compile more information from the form...


summerCamp_ShortCamp:

Page 1 - Collecting the following information:
  • Student Name (text field)
  • Student Age (text field)
  • Phone Number (text field)
  • Select Week (dropdown)
  • Select # of Days (dropdown)
  • Select Days of the Week (checkboxes... not completely necessary, but would love to validate the number boxes checked here to the number of days chosen from the above dropdown - Select # of Days)
  • Select Time

Page 2 - Terms & Conditions:
  • Display Terms & Conditions
  • Checkbox to agree to said Terms...
  • PayPal button

Thank you so very much for your time and attention to this!

Hello,

Unfortunately, what you want to do isn't achievable with BreezingForms.

The only information that can be passed from the form to PayPal is the following:
Item description(name) | Item number | Item total | Tax

If you have other questions, feel free to ask.

Regards,

Mihaela

Thank you for the reply.

Is it possible with everything on one page?

I have read several other threads about passing information along to PayPal, seemingly with success, using ActionScripts. I just curious as to how this differs.

Thank you very much.

It doesn't depend on how many pages you have.

In the link that you have provided, the only information which was passed to BreezingForms was the total.

As I wrote, the following information can be sent from the form to PayPal:
Item description(name) | Item number | Item total | Tax

You can pass some information from the form as Item Name, but that is not an elegant solution and I'm not sure whether you want it to work that way.

Here crosstec.org/en/support/online-documenta...l-donation-form.html it is explained how to pass data which was entered in "Donation Amount" filed as total value.

That is what was done in the link you've sent me.

I hope that this helps.

Regards,

Mihaela
