PayPal Advanced passing item Name and/or Description

Ok, good news. We now have information showing up in the Description part of the PayPal confirmation. Your first suggestion of starting the indexing at 1 and changing the names has us going in the right direction.

There is however some formatting issues and it appears as though the Description is showing the L_NAME and not the L_DESC.

The output for those looks like this;

This is how the information appears in the confirmation sent to me by PayPal.

Item# 5

Addressing these issues one at a time, I figure that the additional characters of %28, %29 and + are character set issues. I don't see anything for charset in the output provided to PayPal. Maybe I need to include one as I normally would for PayPal Standard using a hidden form field. How would I do that here?

The second issue is that the L_DESC wasn't included, just the L_NAME. I realize in my example that it repeats the same information but my plans are to replace that with size and color information.

Thank again Ray.
