adding a custom element to paypal direct checkout

Thread began 4/16/2009 12:21 pm by russell_m89943 | Last modified 4/17/2009 2:15 pm by russell_m89943 | 6849 views | 10 replies


I'm trying the following:

$PP_DirectPayment_itemized[0][0] = "OrderTotal";
$PP_DirectPayment_itemized[1][0] = "".$bellaCart->GrandTotal() ."";
$PP_DirectPayment_itemized[0][1] = "OrderDescription";
$PP_DirectPayment_itemized[1][1] = "".((isset($_POST["country"]))?$_POST["reference"]:"") ."";
while ( !$bellaCart->EOF() ) {

"reference" being the form field I want to grab the info from.
I purposely made the submission fail to look at the submission and lucky me, the request string contains that fields info. I'm assuming that data is present somewhere in the paypal records, even though it's not showing up anywhere in the email notification. (this is all sandbox right now)

Guess I replied to say thanks for the tip and to pass on some knowledge should anyone else need this hack.

Sorta related question: Let's say I wanted to add a confirmation page before sending to paypal. How would one go about doing that manually without breaking the eCart code?
