Automatically strip "," out of amounts passed in a URL.

Automatically strip "," out of amounts passed in a URL.

I have quickbooks create a url like this https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=larryj@go2props%2Ecom&item_name=%20Invoic... in order to allow my customers to pay by paypal or credit card. The problem I have is that anytime I have an amount over 999.99 dollars, Quickbooks automatically adds a  "," in to the amount.  Is there anyway that Paypal can automatically strip the "," out of the amount string.  Ex:  In the url of  https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_xclick&business=larryj@go2props%2Ecom&item_name=%20Invoic... change the 1,000.00 to 1000.00.

Hi @Datacom1

 

Unfortunately, this forum is for ideas on how we can help improve our documentation and merchant integration services and features. I've asked our teams internally and they've stated that we do not automatically strip the comma out of the amount string and that it would be an enhancement that Quickbooks would have to make on their end. 

 

If you'd like to ask the broader community, please post this question in the PayPal Payments Standard - Merchant Integration Technical Support 

 

Thanks - Christina
