    Hi Stephen,

    I haven’t used the plugin for payments yet, so I thought I’d ask this here (better late than never).

    When the punter buys a ticket and pays via PayPal, is there some unique identifier that is passed to PP to indicate which event they’re paying for?

    I ask because with the other parallel system we’re using (Jotform – generic form gozza), the payment at the PP end always just appears as “Shopping cart”, and although the punter’s name & email address may be detailed, if they’re attending more than one event, it’s not entirely clear which one they’ve paid for (to the money handlers, I mean).

    Sorry if this isn’t too clear. Basically what I’m trying to do is have the information easily identified in PP.

    Hi Sue,

    Yes it does. But PayPal doesn’t display this information prominently. If you click to the view the details of a transaction and look for the ‘custom’ key, you should see booking_id=XXX.

    The booking admin table also displays the PayPal transaction ID.
