View Full Version : Need assistance tying forms to Paypal

11-22-2009, 07:42 PM
I am a Canadian on a 7 month volunteer mission to Kenya. I am creating a Christmas giving website to raise money and gifts for villagers here. My temporary website is at www.windrifters.com/wongonyi.html (http://www.windrifters.com/wongonyi.html) ** Please read the first page and then the "1 2 3" on the Christmas page for background.

The complexity I need help with is this: People are buying gifts ON BEHALF of others. Therefore, when they purchase something on the site, they will also supply:
- Who they are buying on behalf of
- That persons email address (if they have it)
- The date they would like the gift notice to be sent
- Quantity of each gift

This, then will somehow connect to Paypal!!??? (I am linking to associate's paypal checkout on their site) I am out of my depth here and would welcome the ability to receive some guidance from a master in this area.

I am running this on my own dime and do not have a budget, so if a donation of someone's time is an option, I will be grateful. If I can somehow reciprocate, I will certainly make mention of your site, your help etc.

Please advise if you are able to help me.

Explore the Paypal buttons in BV. You will notice that there is a place where you can enter a successful url.

With in this mind I would create a page saying

Thank you for your payment and can I take some more details from you. Put a form on this page to collect the info you want.
