Hello, I am using oscommerce as my store.  What I'm looking to do is, when my customer submits an order; I would like to submit a separate request from the php checkout to an asp.net page from code behind.  So basically, post the transaction data, and if approved, post again to a separate custom url of mine on the backend.   Could someone tell me the best way to do this with php?

cURL is the standard method of posting to an external URL. You can set it to wait for the response and then fire another cURL to your own URL when finished.

You can do this.  It will be necessary to modify or add a hook into the PHP checkout.  If you're not a skilled PHP programmer you almost certainly want to hire a professional to make these modifications.

There are two ways to make a POST-method request in PHP.  One is to use cURL and the other is fsockopen().  In either method, a URL-encoded request string is required.

Wow, haven't heard from you for a month, then a bad grade?  What was wrong with the answer?  Please see the Experts-Exchange grading guidelines and then explain why you didn't engage in any dialog and why you marked the grade down.  Looking forward to understanding, ~Ray
