    I wasn't sure what section of the forum to post this in. It's not really a web design question but more of a configuration of how paypal/contact form 7 will communicate to me via email.

    I have a sales page on a wordpress site that sells multiple services. Each service is linked to it's own individual contact form that requires the user to enter 2 fields of information. I've thought of adding a required field asking what service the user orders, but that seems like being 1-step closer to killing the conversion. This form communicates to paypal the price of the service. I have about 8 services that all have the same prices. $3.99 for 10 of one service, 6.99 for 20, 14.99 for 50 and so on.

    When the user fills in the fields I receive the email with the data they've entered in the fields, but doesn't inform me of what specific service they ordered nor does it in PayPal.

    Anyone have a solution for this? I've created around 300 contact forms and would hate to have to use another method, but please feel free to share your ideas.

    Appreciate any help!
