      Example of new field creation:

      Tip

      The Merchant can create a new field using a drop-down list. This list will offer the entire line of business within one single form. It will allow buyers to specify which service they would like to pay for.

    • Customize the text of the Tooltip.
      The tooltip is the information displayed when the cursor hovers over an element that helps the Buyer when filling in information.

    • In Minimum length, redefine the minimal number of characters.

    • In Maximum length, redefine the maximal number of characters.

    • Check the Field to be confirmed box if you want the Buyer to confirm the entry of the field value.
      For example, when the Buyer enters an e-mail address, they will be required to confirm the entry in another field to ensure that they have entered the correct address.
  3. Click Save.

    The new field is created.

Note

When the newly created field is used in a transaction, its value can be viewed in the Extras tab of the transaction details available in the Merchant Back Office.

Transactions can be viewed via the Management > Transactions menu.

To view the details of a transaction:
  1. Select the transaction
  2. Rick click and select Display transaction details.
  3. Click Extras to view the new field.

This new field and its value are also displayed in the confirmation e-mail sent to the Buyer.

You can also find them in your transaction report in the INFO_EXTRA column.
