I am wondering how to integrate PayPal and also send the complete form info that includes 15 other fields not used by PayPal to another email address.

Hi Gerry,

A solution for this may require some AJAX being implemented, will try to have it done ASAP and post back, I wish you are not in a big rush, let me know if you are

We always like to have things yesterday but I've always learned that it is better to wait than to rush things.

I am happy to see your eagerness to solve this challenge and look forward to having your solution when ever you produce it.
It has been a month since I first posted this. I was wondering if you have found a solution to this challenge.<br><br>Post edited by: gerrybakker, at: 2007/03/17 22:25

Hello, am also new to Joomla and CF, am also trying to integrate Paypal, I created the following code in Dreamweaver and pasted to CF, it opens but I can't make the Paypal button work. Please help, I am not really knowledgeable in Php/HTML, but I learn quickly.
<body><form action="" method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="bn" value="webassist.dreamweaver.4_0_3">
<input type="hidden" name="business" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Dictation File (.zip)">
<input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="00001">
<input type="hidden" name="amount" value="18.99">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="undefined_quantity" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="receiver_email" value="">
<input type="hidden" name="mrb" value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX">
<input type="hidden" name="pal" value="XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX">
<input type="hidden" name="no_shipping" value="0">
<input type="hidden" name="no_note" value="1">
<span class="style4">Item to pay</span>
<input type="image" name="submit" src="" border="0" alt="Make payments with PayPal, it's fast, free, and secure!">
Edited: inserted Code tags, removed empty lines and hid ids.

Hi fhmanas,

Please copy just the code between the <form> and </form> tags - see below. ChronoForms creates new <form> tags and the resulting nested form doesn't work.
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_xclick"> 
. . .
<input type="image" name="submit" src="" border="0" alt="Make payments with PayPal, it's fast, free, and secure!">

If you'd like to buy me a coffee or two, thank you very much

You can post everything to PayPal, but how do you get the PayPal response ? you can make a new form and get the results and use some unique id for the post and check for stored record with this unique id and then store the response order status..etc!!

will need few lines of code but you can do it.

sorry gerry for not replying earlier, this was at a very early development stage but now you can handle it!
