The e-commerce.

Order reference number for the bank


Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a purchase module for online cc processing by my bank. They require a reference number to accompany the transaction. It would be convenient to use the order number as generated by osCommerce, but this number is generated after the purchase module kicks in.


Can anyone suggest a solution?


Thanks in advance,

It does depend on what module you are using, but if it is a requirement you can add the following code into the module and simply pass it to your provider as a hidden field $uid.


$uid = tep_create_random_value(16, 'digits'); // Create a UID


This will create a random 16 didgit number on each call of the page ie: 4567865456548563


If you want a smaller value simply change the number.... :D


Hope this is what you are after.
