I am using the product_form tag to add multiple items to the cart at one time. I am passing a category per product to a custom_modifier_name but the value is not being carried over into the cart/checkout.

{exp:store:product disable_form="yes" entry_id="{embed:entry_id}" input:finish="Finish"}
{exp:channel:entries parse="inward" entry_id="{embed:entry_id}" dynamic="no"}
<div class="product-add-ons mix{categories} {category_url_title}{/categories}">
<input type="hidden" name="items[{entry_id}][entry_id]" value="{entry_id}" />
<input type="text" name="items[{entry_id}][item_qty]" id="textfield" /> Qty
{if modifier_instructions}<p class="instr">{modifier_instructions}</p>{/if}
{if modifier_type == 'var' OR modifier_type == 'var_single_sku'}
<!-- select -->
<select id="{modifier_input_name}" name="items[{entry_id}][{modifier_input_name}]" style="visibility:hidden">
<option value=""></option>
<option value="{option_id}">
{option_name} {if price_mod_val} ({price_mod}) {/if}
<input type="text" name="items[{entry_id}][{modifier_input_name}]" />
<input type="hidden" name="items[{entry_id}][finish]" value="{categories}{category_name}{/categories}" />

Everything else works great except for my custom modifier. I have tried using it in and outside of the {modifiers} tags with no luck either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers!

When you are using the product_form tag you need to move input:finish="Finish" to the {exp:store:product_form input:finish="Finish"} tag instead of on the {exp:store:product} tag

    Bingo. And the reason for this is that the custom inputs are encrypted and stored in the hidden _params field you will notice is added to your HTML form. When you use disable_form on the inner product tag this hidden field doesn't get added, hence why Store ignores the input. May 26, 2013 at 11:36
