PayFlow Pro Cart Detail in PayPal

PayFlow Pro Cart Detail in PayPal

The PayPal Payflow pro checkout I recently created is not passing cart details into Paypal as it does when I use Authorize.net. All I see is the payment, but no mention of any product details. Is there a way to make this happen or is it not supported with PayPal?

from the payflow pro documetation, page 68:
https://www.paypalobjects.com/webstatic/en_US/developer/docs/pdf/pp_payflowpro_guide.pdf


  Parameter Description Required Type Length
Retail Transaction Advice Addendum Parameters (for SWIPE transactions)
L_DESCn Description of this line-item (n is a line item No Alpha- 19 number from 1 to 6) numeric
L_AMTn
Amount of this line-item (n is a line item number No from 1 to 6) Must include a decimal and be exact to the cent (42.00, not 42) and exclude comma separators
(1234.56 not 1,234.56) Examples: tip=3.00, convenience charge=2.00
Numeric 12
L_QTYn Quantity of this line-item (n is a line item number No Numeric 3 from 1 to 6)  



so the only info that can be passed for each line item is:
item desc: Max 16 characters
item amount
item quantity

on the confirm page, we use this code to pass that info:

while ( !$eCart1->EOF() )      {
$nextIndex = count($PP_PayPro_itemized[0]);
$PP_PayPro_itemized[0][$nextIndex] = "L_DESC" . strval($cartIndex+1) . "";
$PP_PayPro_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Name") ."";
$nextIndex = count($PP_PayPro_itemized[0]);
$PP_PayPro_itemized[0][$nextIndex] = "L_AMT" . strval($cartIndex+1) . "";
$PP_PayPro_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Price") ."";
$nextIndex = count($PP_PayPro_itemized[0]);
$PP_PayPro_itemized[0][$nextIndex] = "L_QTY" . strval($cartIndex+1) . "";
$PP_PayPro_itemized[1][$nextIndex] = "".$eCart1->DisplayInfo("Quantity") ."";

$eCart1->MoveNext();
$cartIndex ++;
}



paypal should show the item name, but that is all they allow us to pass.

The item name isn't showing up in PayPal. The PM shows the relevant confirm code. The PDF you referenced above says that it is for "American Express." I wonder if these paramaeters apply to the other cards as well?

Hmm, you're right, page 26 shows:
TABLE 4.1 Credit card transaction request parameters

which shows the standard request parameters for a transaction, doesn't look like standard transactions have a way to pass the item information to PayFlow pro.

If you set up the transaction to save the cart information to a database, you can create an admin section to show order history and see the items information for the order.
