hello all,
currently i am using ew business portal, and i love it. only downside is that i cannot pass variables thru it to paypal (ie os0, os1, etc.). i believe he is working on an upgrade. anyways...
i have started creating custom single purchase and cart buttons. right now i have both the single and cart passing 2 variables to paypal. is it possible to pass a series of variables ?

for example, i run a greeting card site, using the osx variables, i am passing along 1) predefined message and 2) a custom typed message. when they buy cards from me, i want to have an option where they enter a friends mailing address (via textboxes), and that info is passed to me somehow.
this way, using the friends address, and their address (from paypal) i can ship cards to their friends w/a their return address.

whew. even if i could concatenate the the textboxes into one, like first&last&street&city&state&zip.

any ideas ?

The "custom" field can accept up to 256 characters. You are welcome to format it as you like. For example:
