Best way to set up e-commerce checkout process for my new website?

I run a game console repairs business and have built a new site so that I can offer a courier service and accept payments online. I have just been accepted for my internet merchant account (streamline) and my WorldPay application is in progress.

www.gameconsolerepaircentre.co.uk

I would just like to hear some views on the best way to code my checkout process. I don't need a cart, because it's very rare that people have multiple consoles repaired at the same time. Each product listing page has a "Book your collection" button. Once the user clicks this button, the price of that repair would need to passed over to the next page. On this page they can select their postage options and collection date, and also input their name, phone, email, collection address, delivery address, billing address etc. Once completed obviously this data needs to be sent to me, and then they would be taken to the WorldPay payment page.


QUESTIONS:

Is there a ready built website plug-in that could do all this for me?

How do I pass along the price info from the product listing page? Cookies? Javascript?

What is the best way to send customer's input data to me? Could this info go directly into a database?

Can I generate an order number that is then passed along to the WorldPay payment page?



I'm not looking for detailed answers, just a brief explanation that I can use to open other questions once I know what I need. Any help is appreciated :-)

You haven't said what programming language you are using but have you looked at the WorldPay examples.
