Hi Lisa,

Try something like this. This would be the Interchange equivalent to the
php code.

<form name="icForm" id="icForm" method="post"
<input type="hidden" name="ItemDescription[item-increment]"
<input type="hidden" name="ItemSKU[item-increment]" value="[item-code]">
<input type="hidden" name="ItemSize[item-increment]"
value="[item-modifier size]">
<input type="hidden" name="ItemQuantity[item-increment]"
<input type="hidden" name="ItemPrice[item-increment]" value="[item-price]">
<input type="hidden" name="p" value=" YOUR PARTNER VALUE REGISTERED WITH
US ">

Hope this helps,
