Paypal donate hosted button is not passing item_number as variable. Stopped working suddenly


I have been using paypal hosted buttons on my website for years. It was working fine.

I use a html variable item_number on the button to pass some information.

Now the IPN is not passing the item_number value, sends it as null. It works sporadically (works when the person donating has a paypal account, fails when they use credit card).


This has happened two years back and i logged a ticket and paypal fixed some code on their end. This is the reference to the old case
