paypal information pass-thru

Have paypal standard. Just finished speaking with them because the notification of order that I receive from them does not contain variables within the order (ie. style choice nor engraving details).

These are both options that I have added to my ecart.

I have an email from Paypal showing the code passthrough. The 2 fields I am talking about pass through no value.

here is the first section of that code:

business=barkmail%40nitrodog.com&

amount_1=15&

item_name_1=small+enamel+ID+tag&

item_number_1=90088&

quantity_1=1&

on0_1=&

os0_1=&

on1_1=&

os1_1=&

handling_cart=0&

tax_cart=0&

I need this information to pass through to Paypal so I can properly process the order.

I am adding the style selection list in the properties management area.
The customer adds in the engraving detail in the text area provided.

I attached the page with those test buttons on it in case they are structured wrong.

Thank you.

on the confirm page, there is a collection of hidden elements that pass the order information to paypal.

you will need to edit those hidden elements.

you will find 4 of them, that look smilar to this;

php:
<input type="hidden" name="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="os0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="os0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="on1_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="on1_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />
<input type="hidden" name="os1_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="os1_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />



the first one:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />



is for passing the option name:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="on0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="Style" />



the second one:

php:
<input type="hidden" name="os0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" id="os0_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1?>" value="" />



for passing the option value, set its value to use the Style cart column binding.

again the 3rd is also for passing an option name, set the value to "Engraving", the forth is to pass the engraving column from the cart.

thank you Jason.

Not being a programmer, would it be OK for you to send me the exact code line to cut and the exact code line to paste in? I would very much appreciate that.

the two option names are:
style
engraving

thanks again....

you would need to send me a copy of your confirm page for me to give the exact code changes.

Thank you.

Just hung up from Paypal.

They are saying that essentially the checkout and the confirm pages are redundant to what they supply, and that to streamline, I should go from the shopping cart page to Paypal. The customer would then enter in their shipping information.

Opinion?
If good, do I need to do some adjusting as to these fields we've been discussin?

thanks

It "Could" be done that way, but really shouldn't.

OK. thanks.

Would it be OK to eliminate just the confirm page since that info is duplicated on the Paypal page?

No, the confirm page is necessary.
