G'Day Matthew,

Actually you can drop the session info... We use iTransact, and from the last 
page call the iTransact server, and have the server return to a page that 
refreshes to the receipts page and it works fine.

The only possible problem I could see was if someone went through the order 
process without having cookies turned on.

Oh and we don't have the WideOpen set either...
