Paypal Gift Message Integration Problem

Can anybody help me solve this problem?

Add an input field or textarea to the form that users can specify a value, something like "Gift Message." Be sure that this value gets displayed in the PayPal Shopping Cart after the item has been added to the cart.

It's From Integrating With Paypal. One of the PHP Courses.

I haven't found a way to display the gift messages after the user adds the item to their cart.

Hey Bill. Not sure if you already resolved this since you had posted your question a while back, but here's the solution that worked for me.

                    <input type="hidden" name="on2" value="Gift Message">
                    <label>Gift Message</label>
                    <textarea name="os2"></textarea>
