Description of item. If omitted in Buy Now or Donations, customers can enter an item name at time of purchase. Optional for Buy Now or Donations Required for Shopping Cart
item_number
Passthrough variable for you to track purchases or donations, passed back to you at payment completion.
amount
The price or amount of the purchase, not including shipping, handling, or tax. If omitted in Buy Now or Donations, customers can enter an amount at time of purchase. Optional for Buy Now or Donations Required for Shopping Cart
on0
First option field name. If omitted, no variable is passed back to you. The os0 variable contains the corresponding value for the label specified in this variable. For example, if on0 is "size" then os0 could be "large".
os0
Option selected by the buyer from the first set of option values. If this option is selected through a text box or radio button, each value should be no more than 64 characters. If this value is entered by the customer in a text field, there is a 200 character limit. If omitted, no variable is passed back to you. Note: on0 must also be defined. For example, it could be "size".
quantity
Number of items. If profile-based shipping rates are configured with a basis of quantity, the sum of quantity values is used to calculate the shipping charges for the transaction. PayPal appends a sequence number to uniquely identify the item in the PayPal Shopping Cart (e.g., quantity1, quantity2). Note: The value for quantity must be a positive integer. Null, zero, or negative numbers are not allowed.
business
Email address for your PayPal account.
shipping
The cost of shipping this item, if you enabled the override of automatic shipping calculations per transaction through your Account Profile. If shipping is used and shipping2 is not defined, this flat amount is charged regardless of the quantity of items purchased. Note: If you use this variable, you do not need to set up shipping rates in your Account Profile. However, shipping rates you set up in your Profile take priority over values specified with this variable, unless you select the Override shipping methods per transaction checkboxes in the shipping methods you defined; the checkboxes are deselected by default. For more information, see Overriding Shipping Calculations on Individual Transactions. Default: if profile-based shipping rates are configured, buyers are charged an amount according to the shipping methods they choose.
shipping2
The cost of shipping each additional item. If omitted, and Profile-based shipping rates are configured, buyers are charged an amount according to the shipping methods they choose.
handling
Handling charges. This is not quantity-specific. The same handling cost is charged regardless of the number of items on the order. Default: no handling charges are included.
