Hi Andrea,

Please use v6

you can use a "Save data" before the "PayPal redirect" to store the info before the user is sent to paypal, then use the "Custom" parameter in paypal redirect to pass the record id and capture it later and update the existing record you already have.

Best regards,

Hi eric67,
All of the PayPal data is available in the PayPal Listener action if you are using that with IPN.
ChronoForms technical support
If you'd like to buy me a coffee or two, thank you very much
