Storing Billing Name and Address details in database

Storing Billing Name and Address details in database

Hi Folks,
Using the ecart checkout wizard allows me to set up the form and store the order and order details with shipping in my database as per the pdf, however we have decided against using a customer login before checkout so I need to capture and store the billing details (not credit card) of the customer into my users database and have the user linked to the order they purchased.

Can you advise on the quickest way to achieve this.

There is really no difference between having a setup like this and one where the user's register first except how you associate the order with the user. Typically you would just insert the userID into the orders table to make the association. You can still do it this way, you will just need to do a check in the user's table to ensure that you do not have that user recorded already. If you do then no problem, just record the user's ID and bind that with the order.

If the user does not already exist though you can just insert them yourselves, then store the id in a session variable and insert that in the orders table to associate the user.

If you are looking to be able to have the user come back to the site later to see their history you will have to come up with a way to allow the user's access. One way to do this is to create a password for the user when you insert them into your user's table and send an email letting the user know their password.
