PayPal description not showing up in detail

PayPal description shows up for client at checkout but not showing up in the account detail list. The description tells the Museum specific things like what day, etc...

PayPal standard...

the transaction list at PayPal does not show the description. it only shows the name and item number. the person selling the item does not know which version. as is indicated in the description. the description is dynamically populated from the text in the add to cart option list

on the confirm page, there is a hidden element that passes the name to paypal, it will look like this:

<input type="hidden" name="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1; ?>" id="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1; ?>" value="<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ?>" />


edit that to concatenate the description:
<input type="hidden" name="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1; ?>" id="item_name_<?php echo $eCart1_Index+1; ?>" value="<?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ?> <?php echo $eCart1->DisplayInfo("Description") ?>" />

confirm.php? I don't see that code. I have no shipping selected so doesn't checkout bypass all the confirm pages?

to clarify. the customer sees the description when they arrive at PayPal. after the transaction is completed... the seller does not see the description in the transaction detail.

This is not using paypal standard, it is using paypal express checkout.


on the confirm page, change:

$WA_PP_ECO_Do_itemized[0][$nextIndex] = "Name" . strval($cartIndex+1) . "";
$WA_PP_ECO_Do_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ."";

to:
$WA_PP_ECO_Do_itemized[0][$nextIndex] = "Name" . strval($cartIndex+1) . "";
$WA_PP_ECO_Do_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ." ".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name")"";

Dreamweaver is giving a syntax error on the line:

$WA_PP_ECO_Do_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ." ".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name")"";
