SIM Itemized Orders for PHP

hello To Everyone Reading This:


I have gone over the SIM Developer Guide and found the information regarding Itemized Orders. However, can anyone tell me if I am wasting my time trying to make this work for ordering food online? I am setting up a menu, I need drop downs from 4 categories all with different prices..Don't know if I should just spend the time using a cart for this basic need.


Also, does anyone have anymore information regarding making the Itemized Order's work. I am having a hard time finding proper documentation...1st timer here...and I am sure once I have this figured out I'll feel stupid for having asked such a simple question. 




If they'll only be ordering four items, you can easily just have one page which does that, then submits to another page which calculates the charge and auto-submits to (onload="document.forms[0].submit();" in your <body> tag). See Chapter 5: Additional API Fields for sub-section Itemized Order Information for how to specify line items in the form you submit to


<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" name="x_line_item" VALUE="item1<|>golf balls<|><|>2<|>18.95<|>Y"> 
<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" name="x_line_item" VALUE="item2<|>golf bag<|>Wilson golf carry bag, red<|>1<|>39.99<|>Y"> 
<INPUT TYPE="HIDDEN" name="x_line_item"  VALUE="item3<|>book<|>Golf for Dummies<|>1<|>21.99<|>Y">

 (yes, you put in one tag per item and they're all named the same...)
