Product Descriptions In PayPal Checkout


Recommended Posts

I posted this in another part of the forum but thought i would be better here.


Here is an updated addon to make the product descriptions show up instead of your shop name on the paypal checkout page using Paypal Standard...This is specifically for PayPal Standard...not PayPal Express.....

For what it's worth, I suggest doing it this way to prevent bloating the confirmation page. In the paypal_standard.php file, replace

  global $customer_id, $order, $sendto, $currency, $cart_PayPal_Standard_ID, $shipping;
  $process_button_string = '';
  $parameters = array('cmd' => '_xclick',
					  'item_name' => STORE_NAME,


  global $customer_id, $order, $sendto, $currency, $cart_PayPal_Standard_ID, $shipping;
  $desc = '';
  foreach ($order->products as $product) {
	  $desc .= $product['qty'] . ' x ' . $product['name'];
	  if (is_array($product['attributes'])) {
		  foreach ($product['attributes'] as $attr) {
			  $desc .= ' ( ' . $attr['option'] . ':' . $attr['value'] . ' ) ';
	  $desc .= ' | ';
  $desc = substr($desc, 0, -2);

  $process_button_string = '';
  $parameters = array('cmd' => '_xclick',
					  'item_name' => $desc,
