HTML Variables for Prepopulating PayPal Checkout Pages





HTML variables for prepopulating PayPal checkout pages let you specify information about the payer. It is recommended that you include prepopulation variables with all of your payment buttons to ensure consistency of address handling in your buyers's checkout experiences.

To determine how the experience varies if you do not consistently pass in prepopulation variables, see Address Handling (U.S. Merchants Only).

Note: If you prepopulate address_override=1 or prepopulate tax or shipping variables, the passed-in values will display in the transaction widget and the calculation widget will be hidden, regardless of whether you have setup shipping and tax rates in your account profile.
