WorldPay - Is the Cart ID on the WorldPay Payments admin pages taken from the SessionID? Would prefer the Order Number from my DB.

Hi, I have just been running test payments through my worldpay gateway. I notice that the Cart ID that worldpay stores appears to look like the browser SessionID. I assume this is used to track the orders as its returned back to the browser. What if the connection drops or theres a problem returning back to the site to confirm the order. Could i send WorldPay the OrderID so i can easily find the order on my website CMS?

Im using PHP/MySQL

Thanks Mark.

Yes, the cart ID uses the session ID:

<input type="hidden" name="cartId" id="cartId" value="<?php echo session_id() ?>" />

It's best to leave the cart ID as the session ID, but you could add the ID from the orders table to the description.

on the confirm page, the description will use the FullDetails from the cart:

<input type="hidden" name="desc" id="desc" value="<?php echo $yourCart->TotalColumn("FullDetails"?>" />

where yourCart is the name of your cart object.

you could concatenate the order ID session that is created to that:

double check the Store order Summary behavior to check the name of the session variable that will be created, for my example, the session being created is "eCart1_OrderID":

<input type="hidden" name="desc" id="desc" value="<?php echo $yourCart->TotalColumn("FullDetails"?> ID:<?php echo((isset($_SESSION["eCart3_OrderID"]))?$_SESSION["eCart1_OrderID"]:""); ?>" />

Thanks Jason.

Ive modded to code on another site to use the orderID as the value passed to and from worldpay and it did make managing orders a bit easier. Bearing in mind that the customer gets a confirmation email from worldpay with the order number in. I initially had the site set up the default way but the customer hated it.
