paypal.Button onAuthorize: get Mrs/Mr gender/salutation from payer_info

Hello,

 

I'm using the paypal-button like this. My problem is that I need to get the gender/salutation (like "Mrs" or "Mr"), but couldn't find a way how to do so. It seems that payment.payer doens't contain this info. Is there any way to get the correct salutatory address for my customers?

 

paypal.Button.render(
		{	env:'production',
			locale: 'de_DE',
			style:
			{	size: 'medium',
				color: 'gold',
				shape: 'pill',
				label: 'checkout'
			},
        	payment: function(resolve, reject)
        	{	paypal.request.post('create-payment.php'+q, {})
                	.then(function(data)
                    {	if (data.status == 'Ok')
                    	{	resolve(data.paymentID);
                    	}
                    	else
                    	{	reject(data.msg);
                        	alert("Error: "+data.msg);
                    	}
                    })
                	.catch(function(err)
                    {	reject(err);
                    });
	        },
        	onAuthorize: function(data, actions)
        	{	actions.payment.get()
        			.then(function(payment)
                	{	var data = payment.payer;
                		data['paymentID'] = payment.id;
                    	$.ajax(
        	    		{	type:'POST',
        		     		url: '/fetchuserdata.php',
        					data: data,
        		           	cache: false,
        		           	dataType: 'json',
        		           	success: function(data, textStatus)
        		           	{	if (data.status == "Ok")
        		           		{	document.location.href = "/continue-checkout.php";
        		           		}
        		           		else
        		           		{	alert("Error: "+data.msg);
        		           		}
        		           	},
        		           	error: function( jqXHR, textStatus, errorThrown )
                		    {	alert('Connection-Error: '+textStatus+' '+errorThrown);
                		    }
        		        });
        			});
        	},
        	onCancel: function()
        	{	// Do nothing
        	}
		}, '#paypal-express-button');

PayPal does not ask for gender of a user as part of the account info. PayPal simply greets users by the name given in their PayPal account.


Kudos & Solved are greatly appreciated. 🙂
