I have added some variables to the paypal_vars.php e.g.
$myPaypal->addField(‘Event_id’, do_shortcode(‘[EE_META type=”event_meta” name=”eventID”]’));

However on the payment_overview.php after payment , I cannot figure how to show the Event_id. Tried various combinations….Are PayPal Variables parsed somewhere?

Hello Alan,

the $myPaypal-addfield, will add an hidden field to the payment overview page.

If that is what you want, to add the event id use:

$myPaypal->addField('Event ID', $event_id);

as the event id is already requested in the data in the data_vars.php.

Hi Dean,
BAd example i used!
I have added a meat field to the paypal variables $myPaypal->addField(‘Charity_id’, do_shortcode(‘[EE_META type=”event_meta” name=”charityID1″]’));

I want to call this value on the overview page. I have tried $_POST[‘Charity_id’]; but no luck. How can we display hidden field values which we add paypal_vars.php on payment_overview.php ?

Thanks for your help
