Recommended Posts



i just made a test purchase and on my bussiness account i get details about tax and shipping....

upps.. yes of course... forgot to tell its website standard module i use...


again what i want is to only transfer total amount to paypal... not shipping and tax etc...


i do have data transfer disabled in paypal and tax have not been setup either so it must come from my shop some way

also i noted a strange thing.. if people pay with cash they get a normal e-mail... if they choose paypal they also get an e-mail BUT its not formatted the same way as the first one... do the paypal module have its own e-mail send procedure thing?

my problems is:


on the paypal account the money goes in to each transaction look like this:


Samlet beløb: 154,60 DKK Gebyrbeløb: -7,86 DKK Nettobeløb: 146,74 DKK Varebeløb: 110,20 DKK Moms: 29,40 DKK Forsendelse: 15,00 DKK Håndtering: 0,00 DKK Antal: 1


"Samlet beløb" is what the customer is charged.

"Gebyrbeløb" is what paypal takes.

"Nettobeløb" is what i get when i transfer to my bank account.

"Moms" is tax and

"Forsendelse" is shipping

"Håndtering" is handling


The amounts are correct, but I just dont wan't paypal to know about them... I could disable auto-return and risk having a lot of payments and no orders and a bunch of angry customers...


for me in this case less is more...


looked at the php scripts and no where my brain can figure where the selection of what paypal is told takes place...

the problem is that paypal get other details than the total amount...


the only thing i want paypal to know is excatly the total amount.... so what i want removed is shipping, tax and handling

actually i just tested it as the shop is now live...


customers address is transfered which is okay since it saves them the typing... but phone number and e-mail is not filled out automatic and they are set to required, makes sence since paypal needs to know where to send the e-mail


how can i make sure that those 2 details are transfered also?


still i need to figure out how to control what amounts are transfered...

found something in the paypal module...


$process_button_string = '';
  $parameters = array('cmd' => '_xclick',
					  'item_name' => STORE_NAME,
					  'shipping' => $this->format_raw($order->info['shipping_cost']),
					  'tax' => $this->format_raw($order->info['tax']),
					  'amount' => $this->format_raw($order->info['total'] - $order->info['shipping_cost'] - $order->info['tax']),
					  'currency_code' => $currency,
					  'invoice' => substr($cart_PayPal_Standard_ID, strpos($cart_PayPal_Standard_ID, '-')+1),
					  'custom' => $customer_id,
					  'no_note' => '1',
					  'notify_url' => tep_href_link('ext/modules/payment/paypal/standard_ipn.php', '', 'SSL', false, false),
					  'return' => tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PROCESS, '', 'SSL'),
					  'cancel_return' => tep_href_link(FILENAME_CHECKOUT_PAYMENT, '', 'SSL'),
					  'bn' => 'osCommerce22_Default_ST',
					  'paymentaction' => ((MODULE_PAYMENT_PAYPAL_STANDARD_TRANSACTION_METHOD == 'Sale') ? 'sale' : 'authorization'));


its close to half way down... are this what defines what is sent to paypal? in such case i could just remove what i dont want paypal to know about
