Hi all

I have a website which does not use a shopping cart.  I use it to advertise a service which i provide to my customers..

What I would like to do is have an order tracking or order status page added in to my existing website.

eg to display things like order no, order status, expected dispatch date etc......

Is there any online services or web products that I could easily bolt-on to my existing site to give my customers the facility of checking how their order is progressing?

Any idea's much appreciated.  I would prefer to by a bolt-on solution if i could.

    How are the orders currently stored?

    The orders are not currently stored online.  Just in a local access database. :)

    You will have to have the access database online accessible if you want to be able to display them.

    If it is a custom database (i.e. you designed it) you will not be able to buy a solution - you will have to write one that matches your database set-up.
