    Default PayPal's use of "Item Number"

    PAYPAL EXPRESS CHECKOUT question regarding "Item Number"

    My client uses a "CATALOG NUMBER" instead of a reference number to track his items. He wanted the CATALOG NUMBER to appear on the Cart page.

    I thought I was really clever - The admin catalog page has a line item identified as Product Number. I did a massive change of all references from 'Product Number' to 'Catalog Number' And, it works just fine - except PayPal calls it an "Item Number" on the PayPal pay page. Guess I am NOT so clever after all (smile).

    Is there somewhere I can change PayPal's "Item Number" to "Catalog Number"?

    Thank you for reading my Post,

    Are you asking if it's possible to tell PayPal to change THEIR wording from saying "Item" to saying "Catalog"?
    If so, I doubt it very much. You'd have to ask them directly:

    Dr. Byte,

    Thank you once again - yes, that is my question precisely. I will pursue the link you suggested.
