Item Descriptions sent to PayPal Express Checkout for my checkout replacement.
The title really says it all, but I'm looking for a developer to complete this quick task for my web site. At the moment I run www.heroesandidols.com, and would like the customers to be able to view their items throughout the entire purchase process when using the PayPal Express Checkout.
I know I need to send transaction-level (line item) details to PayPal by passing additional parameters in the SetExpressCheckout and DoExpressCheckoutPayment API calls, but I'm slighly unsure on how to execute this.
This is a reply which I had on the matter from E-Bay:
You can send transaction-level (also called; "line item details") to PayPal by passing additional parameters in your SetExpressCheckout and DoExpressCheckoutPayment API calls.
An example request looks as follows. Note that this example includes all possible options for including extra metadata with your request.
The main, additional, parameter you'll want to add to your request(s) is the NAME0 (L_PAYMENTREQUEST_0_NAME0) and AMT0 (L_PAYMENTREQUEST_0_AMT0) parameters.
L_PAYMENTREQUEST_0_NAME0=10% Decaf Kona Blend Coffee
L_PAYMENTREQUEST_0_NAME1=Coffee Filter bags
L_PAYMENTREQUEST_0_DESC1=Size: Two 24-piece boxes
Additional information is also available via "Customizing Express Checkout" at ?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer%2Fe_howto_api_ECCustomizing
Anyway, I'd love to hear from anyone who'd like to supply a quote and could execute this task fairly swiftly. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
