Paypal Payment not passing phone number

Paypal Payment not passing phone number


I'm using eCart 5.0.3 to manage a simple ecommerce website for a client and payments are working as expected, but the delivery telephone number is not being passed to PayPal.

I've taken a look at the code but can't see anything obvious, and digging through PayPal's documentation is a bit of a needle in a haystack situation.

I've attached the checkout and confirm files to see if anyone could shed any light on the problem.

Thanks in advance for any help :0)

paypal standard does not offer a way of accepting the phone number, this is a limitation to the paypal standard system.

you could pass the phone number into another field though such as the Address 2 field.

on the confirm page, find the following code:

<input type="hidden" name="address2" id="address2" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["shipping_street2"]))?$_POST["shipping_street2"]:""?>" />

and change it to:

<input type="hidden" name="address2" id="address2" value="<?php echo((isset($_POST["shipping_street2"]))?$_POST["shipping_street2"]:""?>-<?php echo((isset($_POST["shipping_phone"]))?$_POST["shipping_phone"]:""?>" />
