    Has anyone used Paypal's business solution Website Payment Standards?

    I need to know whether the owner of the shop will receive an email stating the names of the products bought when a customer completes a transaction.

    Thanks,

    Phil

    You can pass the basket contents to PayPal standard and this is returned in the confirmation email by PayPal but it would be better if the store software did this for you...

    When you integrate PP Standard into your site using a hard coded form, instead of a buy now button, there are lots of other variables you can pass though to PayPal such as shipping address and the cart contents. This can also include the cart shipping charges etc.

    In most cases it's overkill though as the cart software has already done the job of displaying the contents of the order and PayPal is just there t take the users money.
