Is there any way to add more of the event details to the merchant receipt that is sent by such as the event date? currently only the event name shows up.

Thank you!

Hi there,

There isn’t currently an option to add additional details to the authnet receipts. It is possible to add something like the start date of the event to the receipt, but it would take some knowledge of PHP and mySQL.

For example, in the /gateways/aim/aim_ipn.php file, where it builds the SQL query on line 54 the start date could be added:

$sql = "SELECT a.final_price, a.quantity, ed.event_name, ed.start_date, a.price_option, a.fname, a.lname FROM " . EVENTS_ATTENDEE_TABLE . " a JOIN " . EVENTS_DETAIL_TABLE . " ed ON ";

then on line 62 where it adds the transaction details the start date could be added there:

substr($item->price_option . ' for ' . $item->event_name . 'on' . $item->start_date . '. Attendee: '. $item->fname . ' ' . $item->lname, 0, 255),

Please note that Authnet limits the number of characters to 255, so if there is a really long event name, the additional details that follow the event name may get cut off.
