I am using the pre-population ability of PayPal. All of our users will be Canadian (eh). When the PayPal page is shown all the entries such as first name, last name, address, etc are there but there are a few quirks that I have not been able to get around. The PayPal form defaults to a U.S. user. If the user is Canadian they must hit a button half way down the screen to pull up another screen. Is there any way to have the International screen come up by default and have Candada filled in as the country? Also the phone number fills in correctly in the U.S. screen but in the international screen the format is different and it gets all muddled. Any way around this?

Currently, no. We'll see if we can get those enhancements scheduled.

Hi Patrick

Please keep us up to date about that issue!

It would be great to redirect non-US users to the international form!

I hope you can do it soon! :)

Any news on this yet??

I find it a bad that I cannot properly pre-populate the form when I have the country and phone number but as the Guest says they have to click halfway down the form in order to change it, rather unnecessary.

Well this is better than nothing:

I parsed the country and citizenship variables with GB and then 44 to night_phone_a and the phone number itself as night_phone_b.

When the user clicks on the not from US link it then pre-populates the fields as described above.

Currently setting the International Sign up/Payment page is not available. You can pass the International sign up values with your payment information. Depending on the type of payment button you are using, you can use the following input types, to assist your customers with the sign up process. They will still need to click on the link to switch to the international sign up page.
