Storing Confirmation ID In orders.OrderTrackingNumber

Storing Confirmation ID In orders.OrderTrackingNumber

My business is selling pre-packaged services through eCart. As such I am not "shipping" physical products so I don't have to worry about UPS or FedEx and so on.

When a confirmation comes back from the payment processor (let's assume just PayPal for now), is there a way I can capture PayPal's Receipt No. XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX and store that in orders.OrderTrackingNumber ??

Or perhaps there's a better field in orders. I didn't see one so I thought I'd try to piggyback on the OrderTrackingNumber field since I'm not using it for shipping purposes.

Is there a session variable or some other container that holds that value after PayPal comes back with its confirmation screen ?

Thanks, Bob Hunt
