SIM for authorize.net : Relay response loses state


Recommended Posts

I've read through quite a few postings and have not found the answer, so here I am...


Here's my situation:


osCommerce: 2.2-MS1

payment gateway: authorize.net


1. I need to use SIM with authorize.net so I can use authorize.net's secure server to process payment info securely.


2. I can create and pass the required SIM variables to authorize.net and get credit card verification from authorize.net


3. When the relay response URL (checkout_process.php) is loaded from authorize.net - it loses state, it has no order or login info to continue processing the order, ie. insert order into database, email customer and finish up the final order processing so the code redirects me to the login page.


What is the state variable used for checkout_process.php. A cookie? the osCsid? I probably need to pass some hidden variable to authorize.net but I have't nailed it down yet.


If anyone has successfully used SIM with authorize.net to process an order and has returned successfully to the checkout_process.php to finalize the order, I would be most grateful for this final piece to the puzzle along with any other helpful info. Thanks in advance.

An error occurred while trying to report this transaction to the Merchant. An e-mail has been sent to the merchant informing them of the error. The following is the result of the attempt to charge your credit card.


This transaction has been approved.


It is advisable for you to contact the merchant to verify that you will receive the product or service.
