This should contain something like $orderID. However, AuthorizeNet only
accepts 8 characters there, so the best thing to do is to use a counter.

    $orderID = Vend::Interpolate::tag_counter('etc/authorizenet.counter');

In 4.7.x I do it this way for Vend::Payment::Authorizenet. I also
added payment_id and payment_mode to the transactions database, so you
can do a return or void using that as a reference. (UI support for that
should be there by the time 4.8 gets released.)
