Yes, I wish they would tell me something but they keep going back and forth with it being on their end. That's where they are now, after posting this but the engineer that is working on it seems to know his stuff. And he says he has another merchant with the same issue.
Having said that, I want to be prepared in case they come back to me with the need for a ship to name.
Which page are you wanting to see? checkout.php, checkout_success.php, confirm.php, etc? I will attach which ever page you need to see.
Also, are you reading somewhere that SHIPTONAME is the variable? Maybe you have a better doc on the subject. The one I am reading is here #paypal-credit-card-transaction-request-parameters
In other sections where it has to do with other payment gateways such as SecureNet, it mentions BILLTOFIRSTNAME , BILLTOLASTNAME ,SHIPTOFIRSTNAME and SHIPTOLASTNAME. Nothing in the PayPal payments section. But then again, it makes no mention of FIRSTNAME which passes just fine to the billing information.
