Need transaction description to go to PayPal

Want more information to be passed to PayPal from Wild Apricot (e.g. what payment is for - membership, event payment) and which program a donation is being directed to (e.g. 1st fundraising campaign, 2nd fundraising campaign).

        Yes, the more detail that can be provided from WA to PayPal so that it is easier to reconcile the better - also vice versa - the registration report for an event should include a link to the PayPal payment

        We are getting membership and event descriptions in our PayPal transaction - individual payments and a monthly report. However, when one member pays for say two annual memberships (their own and their spouse), the PayPal transaction says "membership" and the applicable WA invoice #, but it does not include the member's name for who the payment was made. In a few cases, some members let invoices age and then pay for several events at the same time - again, only invoice #'s are shown. We track membership payments in our finance system (Quicken) via name, not WA invoice #. Add the Member's name in the PayPal transaction would be a great help in recording the correct member's name in Quicken. Our Membership Chair (uses WA) and our Finance Person (uses Quicken) spend way too many hours trying to balance the two systems each month with new and renewal payments.

        Agreed! We have to manually update a monthly paypal report cross referencing to membership report, event report, and other activity. inclusion of this field would be very helpful
