    I have created a site that gives the user a custom URL and then they can choose to purchase it. Is there anyway to pass that url through paypal so that I can see which one they are actually wanting to buy? Right now I have them put the URL in the seller instructions, but some forget and im sure it turns others off having to add an extra step. Ive done some research but I cant find a good answer.

    Any help is appreciated,
    Thanks.

    I actually just coded something similar, use PayPal's IPN (InstantPaymentNotification) API and pass whatever back in a custom field. It works great.

    EDIT: Also, this should probably had been posted in the programming section. Head's up.
