1. PayPal cannot accept file uploads, PDF files, or custom fields.
2. PayPal cannot accept negative numbers or discounts from the SCC coupon feature. 

You will need to give a coupon code to your users for them to enter it on the PayPal end.

Do you need to ask for customer details or custom user input (dates/additional information/etc.)? If yes, we recommend you link to WooCommerce instead of Stripe, then install the Stripe module for WooCommerce. After that, you can add a custom field to WooCommerce to gather your needed data.
