Invoice numbers are garbage
« on: November 05, 2010, 01:07:56 AM »
Hello Virtumartists

My client is getting random garbage for invoice numbers; can you help me figure out how to make them more normal?

This is the page info returned:

Thank you for your order!

Order Information
Surf Camera
Purchase Order
Invoice Number:
Customer ID:
PO Number:
Tax Exempt:

This number is the number sent to Your payment gateway. You should look into the code for Your payment gateway. The "normal" ordernumber is an integer stored in $order_id.

So how would I change that to the order number? I'm a rookie code person, but a quick learner. "I know enough to be dangerous" my php buddy says.

Can you point me in a more specific direction?
