paypal not getting shipping and tax

paypal not getting shipping and tax

I have a site in which the cart is displaying correctly all calculations. The site is only using PayPal for the checkout and when it sends the customer to PayPal it is not sending the tax and shipping but only the items. I have attached the confirmation page that sends the cart to PayPal. Thank you for your help.

Add these hidden form elements to the hidden form at around line 464:

<input type="hidden" name="handling_cart" value="<?php echo($loon2->GetShipping()); ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="tax_cart" value="<?php echo($loon2->GetTax()); ?>" />
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="WebAssist.eCartPHP.Pro" />

(please leave the last one too... it won't effect functionality, but helps us get credit for the customer when PayPal evaluates our partner relationship)

paypal not getting tax from ecart 6

Hi Ray I am having the same issue as bryan but only for Tax, and I am running ecart 6. Do i add the hidden form elements to my confirm.php or confirm_cart.php?
and where on the page do I add it?

No hidden form elements should be needed for eCart 6. That was just for paypal standard buttons, which has been replaced by Express Checkout in eCart 6.

Does tax show in the cart before sending to paypal? I think it is probably an issue with the tax rule in the cart in your case that needs to be corrected and not associated with how it is sent to paypal.

It does not show in the cart because once I hit continue on the Checkout page it goes straight to paypal, and that is where I don't see it.
I also don't see it after i purchase it on paypal and it returns to my order information page
