    Hi - I have a client who has a Mal's shopping cart and each time an order comes through, we have to piece together all the info from the Mal's order email and the PayPal order email and do math to figure out which shipping method they chose. Is there a way to pass more info onto PayPal so that order email has all the info? Like the billing address AND the shipping address, tax amount and shipping method? We are using the shipping method: "Option 5: Calculated by weight or other value from an array" and there are 2 zones: "USPS Media Mail (1-2 weeks)" & "Priority Mail (3-4 days)".

    THANKS!

    Why not just get ALL of the info from Mals?

    Having trouble with a form or need one building?
    Fast turnaround, but I do charge :)

    Mal's Forms / Scripts and the syntax are here.

    Hi - Thanks for responding. I could but the formatting for the shipping address is not as easy to copy and paste (because there is a title for each line) and the shipping type is listed as a number and not the title I've given it. "Ship zone: 2" instead of "USPS Media Mail (1-2 weeks)". Is there a way to format the address better and show the name of ship zone?

    On the shipping page, Mal says...

    You must use a countries list if use USPS, UPS, Fedex or Australia post rates services. Do not use a list of zone names.

    Are you using a zone name as in... USPS Media Mail (1-2 weeks)

    Yes, using custom names because chose: "Option 5: Calculated by weight or other value from an array".

    2 Shipping Options:
    USPS Media Mail (1-2 weeks) = $4 for the first book, plus $0.75 for each additional book.
    Priority Mail (3-4 days) = $12 for up to 8 books, plus $1 for each additional book.

    Cart works fine like this - just trying to have order email reflect info.
