I’m having a bit of a problem with the character limit for paypal shopping carts. I currently have it set up so that when additional options are selected on the form, this is then calculated using java for the total box, which is then sent across to paypal. The issue with this is that there are quite a few options available. So when they are all selected even though the total is correct I don’t know what some of the options are, as the relevant text stops after about 150 characters.
One solution i had thought about was to have the individual elements as additional item that can be selected and added with 1 click of the button. I remember reading somewhere that even through paypal does not support add all items to cart, you can get around this using php? I know its a bit vague, but does anyone have any links to tutorials or examples i can work from in order to implement this? I should point out that I am a bit limited in my knowledge of php, but hopeful that i can learn as i go.
Feel free to ask any questions if i have not made any sense.
