How can I send the shipping method to Paypal Express?

I need to send the shipping method (UPS Ground, 2nd Day, etc.) to Paypal Express so that my client knows which method the customer chose in the e-cart checkout. Right now, all they're getting is the amount. How do I go about coding that?

There is a blank field on the pp_confirm.php page for "OrderDescription". I think you can use that to add the shipping type and it would be passed through with the order.

OK Ray. Now I seem to have a larger issue. When I go through the checkout process at the Paypal site, after I enter my credit card info and submit - it takes me to a "not found" page and the transaction does not go through.

We are hoping to make this site live this weekend, so please let me know asap what I can do.

Thanks.

That is trying to return you to the page specified as the return page on the confirm.php page.. it should be the full url to the pp_confirm.php page. What is the url when you get the "not found" message? There is likely a typo or something else wrong with the url. If you attach a copy of the confirm.php page I could let you know what line number to look at.
