Sending data to Analytics from php
I've come far with sending PayPal data into Ecommerce Analytics.
My data flow is as follows:
2) Website merges clientId and some other meta data into PayPal's variable "item_number" associated with a Pay Now button (see details below)
3) After purchase is completed, PayPal calls my IPN script (php) which extracts clientId etc. from "item_number"
So I'm essentially looking for a way to inject the transaction's data now available on the server side into Analytics without running a browser.
(PayPal variable detail: I use a Pay Now button. Then "custom" is not available as a pass-through variable. See https://developer.paypal.com/docs/classic/paypal-payments-standard/integration-guide/Appx_websitesta... )
