PayPal checkout price incorrect

PayPal checkout price incorrect

I am adding two prices together via the calculations tab in the eCart Object panel. The "Price" is set to $55.00 and a dinner price set to $35.00, the calculation is as follows:

[Price] * [Quantity] + [DinnerPrice]

This totals to $90.00 correctly in the shopping cart display and confirm.php page but only sends the $55.00 to PayPal instead of the total price of $90.00.

In the database the total price of $90.00 is correct in the orders table but not the order details table

Why is it not sending the total price to order details table or PayPal? No modification have been made to any of the pages.

Thanks,

I see why the details table only reads the $55.00 but I do see why the total price is not going to PayPal.

Help in getting this to send the proper amount to PayPal would be great.

Thanks

Did you modify the Total Price Calculation from:

[Price] * [Quantity]

to:
[Price] * [Quantity] + [DinnerPrice]

for this?

you should also create another calculation:

realPrice:
[Price] + [DinnerPrice]


then edit the code that sends the item price to paypal to use the realPrice instead of Price.


are you using paypal payments pro? or paypal standard?

Yes, I did modify the total price calculation to [Price] * [Quantity] + [DinnerPrice]

Ahh, I didn't realize I needed another calculation. I'm just using PayPal standard for this.

yeah, since you are modifying the total price, you need another calculation for the item level price.

on the confirm page, there will be a line similar to this:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="amount_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="amount_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="<?php echo WA_eCart_FormatNumber($eCart1->DisplayInfo("Price") - (($eCart1->DisplayInfo("Price")/$eCart1->TotalColumn("TotalPrice")) * $eCart1->GetDiscounts()), false2?>" />


modify that to use the realPrice calculation:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="amount_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="amount_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="<?php echo WA_eCart_FormatNumber($eCart1->DisplayInfo("realPrice") - (($eCart1->DisplayInfo("realPrice")/$eCart1->TotalColumn("TotalPrice")) * $eCart1->GetDiscounts()), false2?>" />

Got it

Thanks again Jason,

I actually found it just before you posted, I appreciate your help!

It posts the $90.00 to PayPal now.
