PayPal buttons

P: n/a
I need to know what I can do to add input items to a PayPal button.

Client wants a checkbox to know whether customer wants personalized
inscription used in purchased of an item. Also need a space to input that
inscription if customer chooses the checkbox.

PayPal is very picky about their buttons and nothing can be secure with
additional info included other than the button.

If anyone has any ideas how to do this and still get my client the info in
discussed in second paragraph, please let me know.

Ed

This question would be better asked on one of the Paypal developer
forums.

However the answer is to not use a Paypal button. Instead code the
interface string yourself according to their documentation.

We use PHP to populate the hidden form values from the database values
along with pulldown options for one of our client's Football website:-
e.g. http://www.footballstuff.co.uk/kits.php

If you read the PayPal documentation it will explain how to do it.
