X-Cart: Show Order Details (line-items) inside PayPal Order Details
X-Cart does not show order details (line-items) inside the PayPal order details.
This is by design as it allows you to view order details inside the X-Cart admin for each order.
If you want to track your orders using PayPal instead of using the X-Cart admin, for whatever reason, you’ll have to do the following:
Get a version that can be patched. X-Cart has a patch/workaround that does send order details to PayPal as line-items.
Unfortunately this patch only works for certain versions of X-Cart.
I tried this on Version 4.4.2 and it worked. It did not work on 4.5.4 though a version appropriate patch was applied.
The patch is available in the X-Cart forums if you search for “PayPal line items” and it modifies “ps_paypal.php” which is seen in the “/payments” folder.
X-Cart should provide an option to enable line-items in PayPal especially since PayPal has improved its accounting interface to a large extent.
